Tips on ordering wholesale flowers


 
►  You should be ordering your flowers a minimum of 14 to 21 days (2 to 3 weeks) prior to your event.  Depending on the type(s) of flowers ordered, we strongly advise that you schedule pick-up/delivery 3 to 7 days in advance of your event to allow sufficient time for processing, hydration and to allow the flowers to open fully.

A partial list of flowers that may take additional time to open include all lilies (but especially white asiatics), ranunculus, gladiolus, and green mini-hydrangeas.

 

►  Short notice?  As long as you are somewhat flexible, we can work with you on orders where we have less notice, sometimes even next day.  Keep in mind that some flowers may not be at their prime if there is not sufficient time for processing, hydration and to allow the flowers to open fully.  We can make recommendations so you'll not be disappointed.

For orders with less than 72 hrs notice a 10% Rush order fee will be added at checkout.

 

Once you’ve established color, type and number of flower bunches you need, use the Categories list to search for the flowers you want to purchase. Click “All Flowers” to see the names of flowers you can choose from. For your convenience, most all flower type have a picture when you click on the name. Under each flower name, seasonal availability, grade and number of stems per bunch are listed.

 


 

When you are ready, simply add flowers to your shopping cart and continue shopping until you have everything that you need. Remember to add greenery and floral supplies to complete your designs. When your shopping cart has what you need, follow the safe and secure check out process to complete your order.
 

►  For orders totaling under $50.00 a low order fee of $8.00 will be assessed at checkout.
