The Art of Buying Fresh Flowers


Just as you want your groceries to be fresh, you should also expect your flowers to be. Unfortunately, flowers do not have a "best before" date stamped on them. There is virtually no way of knowing just how fresh they are, or how long you can expect your flowers to last.

 

Essentially the typical supply chain works likes this... At the end of a flower growers day, all previously cut flowers that are not sold directly to consumers like yourself (Direct from the Grower), are then shipped to auctions or wholesalers throughout Canada and the United States. These are in turn sold at a discount to florists who stock them as inventory in their coolers until they can be sold to consumers. Therefore, through the traditional supply channels, consumers often get a three to five day old bouquet.

 

Because we cut our flowers every day of the year, we don't have to maintain a "consumer ready" inventory. By purchasing your flowers direct from the greenhouse grower, you receive only the freshest possible product, guaranteed. The flowers you receive from our growers have been harvested within the past 24 hours, and will mature to magnificent full blooms for maximum enjoyment.
