Maggie Smith of Pine State Flowers
Summary: In this episode of the Team Flower Podcast, we are joined by Maggie Smith of Pine State Flowers. Pine State Flowers is the only flower shop in North Carolina to exclusively source locally grown flowers. Being familiar with the local farming community, Maggie knew plenty of flower farmers in the area but no space that sourced 100% locally grown flowers. So with only a good idea, a little savings, and no background in the floral industry, she reopened Roll's Florist as a flower shop and started a small flower cutting garden on the site of the original greenhouses behind the shop.
