The Path To Finding Better Flowers

Benefits of Buying Flowers from a Local Florist

The floral industry of today is a very dynamic, global, fast growing industry which has grown in great measure from decades past. Today the orders for flower arrangements are growing with customers demanding more than the usual styles but they are seeking more creative and unique ones. With countless florists posting daily Instagram inspirations, the scale of pairing off has been multiplied. And not only that, with the possibility of sending flowers globally customers can now just pick and choose any flower that wish to send to someone and which can be freshly harvested from any foreign nation and sent to the recipient in that location.

That part of the story tells of its good and wonderful side. However, when you search the internet, you can right away see how countless customers who ordered online are hounded even after paying extra for same day delivery. You can read all sorts of other horrible nightmares of online shops from excuses to not even getting a refund for a mistake that they have nothing to do with.

Well, have you ever wondered what you really get when you buy local?

Consider riding a plane for many hours and your feeling once you have gotten off the plane. IF you feel tired after a long plane journey, what would a fragile flower feel if it is made to travel from the garden to the airport, ride in the luggage compartment in the heat of it with little or no water? Compare this flower upon its arrival at your home to the flower you purchased from your local producer. Well I am sure that you can right away see how your flower will have a much smoother ride to your doorstep. The flower that came from your local florist is not so battered and so will live longer and will be enjoyed by its recipient more.

Also remember that you are buying from a local garden that unlike those large farm producers that have to breed flowers with thick stems and other characteristics that will ship well, your local florist plan their flowers for its scent with no pressure to ship them out. When you choose to buy flowers for an occasion or as a gift, it is not only about color and arrangement, it includes the fragrance. Besides, there is nothing worse than knowing that someone spend over fifty dollars on roses and they even smell like one.

Since local farms are small there are less diseases and pests. Smaller farms have less problems from the sheer size of their farms.

With a local purchase, you can supporting these local farmers and encouraging them to keep on doing so.
