Flower & business design insights, inspiration, and advise for the modern day florist (or wannabe florist).
Anyone who's ever gone shopping for strawberries in the dead of winter knows that they're more expensive and less delicious than those grown in the summer. Berries don't thrive as well in the harsh elements, and they're pricier in the off-season thanks to the gas-guzzling shipping methods necessary to put them on store shelves.
The same principle applies to flowers. Although a selection of lovely blooms can be found in many locations for most of the year, others are relegated to only select seasons for the eco-conscious bride. For example, roses, which are one of the most popular choices for bouquets and centerpieces alike, thrive widely in the summer months, making them more accessible on a local scale and less expensive.
