Bagoy's Florist & Home really can't overstate the significance of bees. 1/3 of the food we consume is dependent on pollination, a process that relies mostly on bees. Of the top 100 foods we consume, bees pollinate 70. We're talking everything from avocados and apples to coffee and carrots. This is why maintaining bee colonies, contained in hives or "hotels," is crucial. Just as beneficial? Keeping a bee-friendly garden. Read More about Sunflowers: Popular With Us, Popular With Bees »
So you've brought home a beautiful design from Bagoy's Florist & Home or received one. What now?

There are certain florals and greens that do well in certain spaces in your home and others that can live anywhere. A few rules apply: nothing too fragrant on the dining table, for example. Something Zen-like and humidity-hardy in the bathroom, for another. Today we take one of our summer designs and tell you exactly where you can give it a home in yours.

Bagoy's Florist & Home spends the 4th of July like many of you do---relaxing and enjoying the long summer day. We love to be outside camping or at the lake, firing up the grill later for some good old American BBQ. We too look forward to the fireworks show and the chance to commune with family and friends, whether we're in a backyard, on a boat or gathering around the table. If you've been invited to spend Independence Day at someone else's home this year, bring a proper hostess gift along with that six pack and extra hot dog buns.

Is there any transition more glorious than the one from spring to summer? We here at Bagoy's Florist & Home think not.
It's our pleasure to entice you with an early look at summer's floral bounty, featuring many of the flowers we fall in love with in spring. For sure, the two seasons share a lot of flowers in common (think hydrangea, iris and tulips), but in summer, we tend to see more assertive, richly-colored blossoms. There are those hammy showstoppers, sunflowers, and then there are those flowers that seem overdressed for the occasion (we're looking at you, zinnias). We have towering snapdragons, delicate garden roses and pretty petunias. Summer's a showcase for gorgeous flowers. In honor of our trees starting to show green here in Anchorage, we're giving you a glimpse of what's to come. Read More about Summer’s Coming, Go Outside! »
As they bloom from spring until early autumn, hydrangea are a perfect summer flower. As refreshing as a glass of lemonade on a warm day, the beautiful hydrangea blossoms are elegant, delicate, colorful and all-around gorgeous. Hydrangea are popular for bridal bouquets, birthday arrangements, and every occasion throughout the year - whether as an accompaniment to another flower, or on their own, their soft palettes and petals are truly ethereal. If you would like to fill your home with summer hydrangea, stop by to see us at Bagoy's Florist & Home.
Did You Know? The 75 species of hydrangea grow virtually everywhere across the globe, from Asia to America. No wonder they are one of the world's most cherished flowers. Read More about Summer Hydrangea Designs »

We love Alaska in summer - the gorgeous colors, the fields of flowers, and the vibrant sunshine all beckon us out to the most beautiful days of the year. If you want to add even more interest, color, and beauty to your personal home and property, how about a butterfly garden? You can start with the floral professionals at Bagoy's Florist & Home.
Butterflies are found throughout Alaska, from sea level to towering mountaintops. Some butterflies visit our state this time of the year, while others are native. The nectar of flowers is food for butterflies, and providing an abundance of these will ensure that your butterfly garden is the most popular spot in the neighborhood. Butterflies can get sustenance from most flowers, but each species has its preferred blooms, which are generally plants native to the region.
