Curate has the distinct pleasure of welcoming BloomTrac (formerly Ularas) to the Curate family. In doing so, Curate will be able to serve our users and the floral community at a much deeper level.
In considering the opportunity presented to us by Sarah Hinton, founder of BloomTrac, to expand the Curate family with BloomTrac-ers, we took time to ensure that growing the Curate family by adding BloomTrac users would help us further our three goals of educating, creating, and investing in the floral and event communities.
After considering all the details, the Curate team came to the conclusion that inviting BloomTrac users into the Curate family absolutely made sense for the betterment of the floral and events community.
With this new acquisition, BloomTrac users will get more features to help them accomplish their goals and Curate users will benefit from a larger customer base as the additional resources and feedback will be invested back into developing the best features for our users.
The floral industry at large benefits from our growth too as Curate will be able to create more resources and partner with more leaders in the industry to develop best-in-class education opportunities.
Additionally, Curate will be able to make a bigger impact on more florists' lives as more features are developed to tackle some of the major pain points within operational workflows that are presently done manually.
We are absolutely thrilled about what the future holds as we move forward with our growing family!
Are you a BloomTrac user who loves getting our blogs and updates already? Great! Welcome to the family! Check your email for more details about the transition plan and upcoming Q&A webinars specifically for BloomTrac users.

This week we bring you four of David Austin's leading ladies, three shades of white and finally for a splash of colour we add the infamous Juliet.
Do you know there are only five farms across the world who are officially allowed to grow David Austin Wedding Rose cut varieties? We have buying rights for almost all of them and have a great supply of these stunning roses so don't ever be concerned about offering them. Although on large orders always check with Sales to ensure we can cover the volumes at that time.
An all time favourite, still our biggest seller and one of David Austin's earliest cut rose varieties is Patience. She is just a stunning rose and one of the most popular roses with florists.
She is one of the strongest scented David Austin Wedding roses, which we all know is so incredibly important for brides.
The new kid on the block
Leonora (Auswagsy) formerly known as Ella
We like to keep you on your toes, yes, this gorgeous rose was formally known as Ella however due to complicated trademark reasons David Austin had to change her name to Leonora.
Whatever she is called though, we are mesmerised by her natural beauty and her beautiful blooms. She is slightly different to Patience but is already taking the world by storm and proving to be just as popular.
Is she very pale pink or white?
She oozes beauty, her centre is dusted with the softest blush. A hint of peach spills out into feathery white petals. She is ultra-feminine and we do just love her!
She has a gorgeous scent of rose water and Turkish delight and as it happens she is a true delight to work with.
Last but not least
We couldn't leave you without discussing Juliet (Ausjameson)
She is probably the most well known David Austin Wedding Rose and she performs exceptionally well.
Her unique peach colour and large and elegant blooms are what made Juliet utterly different from most other contemporary cut roses. When fully open, the blooms reveal many neatly-arranged petals nestling in folds within the heart of the bloom.
If you clink on the image above it will take you straight to Juliet on our website where you can learn more about this stunning rose.
And that's a wrap, I bid you farewell until next week... (Yes, I have been waiting the whole newsletter to add this last bit)
Nestled amongst California’s giant redwoods, in the foggy town of Arcata— Sun Valley is creating 365 days of Spring with their sustainably grown tulips, lilies & iris! Sun Valley, one of the largest growers of fresh cut flowers in the United States, got it’s start when head grower and CEO Lane DeVries was searching for the perfect location to grow premium flowers. The remote, coastal town has a year-round average temperature of 55° which allows the flowers to grow slowly- producing strong stems and deep green foliage.
Of course, growing beautiful flowers year-round takes more than the perfect weather conditions. Sun Valley alternates between northern and southern hemisphere bulbs and state of the art techniques to trick the bulbs into thinking it is Spring. These special techniques allow the farm to grow vibrant blooms 365 days a year!
In 2016, Sun Valley took major steps to become the first American flower farm to become certified sustainable by the Rainforest Alliance™. With this certification, Sun Valley showed their dedication to meeting rigorous environmental and social standards and toward making a positive impact in their community and within the floral industry. So, whether you pick up a bunch of tulips, lilies, iris or even butterfly ranunculus—you can be sure that you are purchasing the highest quality flowers available!
— Farm Facts —
When Lane DeVries was searching for the perfect location to grow premium tulips he found Arcata, CA. With an average temperature of only 55° our flowers are able to grow slow and strong.
Our coastal farm is located 300 miles north of San Francisco. Our remote location is perfect for flower growing but with a 12-hour drive to the nearest cross dock we face many logistic challenges.
Our farm is equipped with 170,000 sq. ft. of coolers! The coolers are the start of our state-of-the-art cold chain management. Proper handling ensures that flowers arrive as fresh as when they left our farm!
In 2017, our farm became the first American flower farm to become certified by the Rainforest Alliance™.
