Flower Growers, Nurseries Brace For Effects of Drought

(Sacramento, CA)
Wednesday, February 26, 2014

Frank Maurer operates a flower farm in Yolo County between Davis and Woodland. He sells daffodils and other flowers at the Farmer’s Market in Downtown Sacramento on Sundays.

“In one to two, three weeks I’m getting what I would’ve had in two to three months because they’re all coming on all together,” he says. “So I’m getting now daffodils coming early when they would just be starting. I’ve got daffodils all over the place mixed with narcissus which should be finished. So as a business it’s a killer.”

Meanwhile, many nursery owners who were hit hard in previous droughts now worry they’ll suffer a similar fate as water districts limit or ban outdoor watering.
