Ubly flower shop preparing for peak season

One of the busiest times for a Ubly business is coming soon.

Buds & Blossoms flower shop has plenty of arrangements for weddings, proms and funerals, but it’s not the busiest time for Buds & Blossoms owner Amy Schulte.

“The busiest time is Mother’s Day,” said Schulte. “It varies from time to time. I might have a lot of weddings to work on and proms, but the busiest is usually around Mother’s Day.

“I usually offer some sort of special then, but it’s too early to say what I’m going to offer. “

According to Schulte, she was participating in a program at the Huron County Skill Center that set her on the path to owning the flower shop.

“I worked here when I was in high school as part of the Skill Center (on-the-job) program,” she said. “Then when I graduated, they offered to buy it because they were getting ready to retire, and I did. “

She took over the business from Dan and Karen Lackowski. That was 21 years ago.

Experience has proven the best coach for Schulte.

“I learned on the job,” she says. I learned by working with them.

Buds & Blossoms Flower Shop offers flower arrangements, gifts, cards, stuffed animals, silk flowers, collectibles, wedding accessories and more.

The company offers a few plants, but does not have a greenhouse.

“I don’t carry vegetable plants,” she says.

Schulte has an employee to help her when she’s busy.

Buds & Blossoms is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to noon. The company is located at 2224 E. Main St., Ubly,
