Long winter delays flowers for Mother's Day

WAUSAU (WAOW) - Candy, flowers and jewelry are all popular Mother's Day gifts.

Krueger Flowers and Gifts in Schofield has a retail store filled with those items and more.

But outside Tuesday, workers in a greenhouse were scrambling to get hanging flower baskets and garden flowers ready for shoppers.

"There was a delay with all the cold this winter," worker Thomas Eiden said. "We have been growing things in the greenhouse and they look great. We received shipments to the store Monday and we are getting a couple a day. We are organizing them and should be ready by the time people rush in."

Eiden says hanging flower baskets are a favorite of many shoppers but adds some of the flowers will have to be kept inside until consistently, warmer weather arrives.
