Flowers from different farms all over the world find their way into the market through importers and wholesale buyers. These dealers then distribute the flowers to the retail florists in malls or neighborhood shops.
Retail florists are usually located within one district of the city, the one nearest to the dealer or ports. Close distances to the sources ensure the freshness of the flowers and lessen the cost of transport and risk of damage and spoilage.
You can also opt for flower delivery in Sydney if you want to send flowers to your loved ones.
With faster transportation, improved logistical infrastructures for importing and exporting goods, and the growing diversity of tastes and preferences of those who populate cities, more exotic and hard-to-come-by flowers are being made available in most retail florists.
Competition among these florists has also encouraged each one to offer specializations and expertise. Some florists hold diploma courses in design and boast of awards won in national and international competitions in flower arrangements. This has led to the creation of various flower arrangements available for the customers to choose from.
Selling flowers has become a profitable business as people find more reasons and opportunities to use flowers. Some retail flower shops have changed their business and go to the next level with their product brands. They sell what is known as bloom designers. These retail flower shops have branches or franchises across the country, and even in other parts of the world.
