Floristry has been the trade, business, and commerce in flowers since time immemorial. It covers everything related to the cultivation of flowers, including flower arrangements, flower treatment, merchandising, a wholesale flower business, display, delivery, marketing, sales, and distribution.
Wholesale florists sell bulk flowers, plants, and other related accessories to different professionals in the flower trade. The products they sell are usually fresh flowers. They also provide a variety of different flower types and colors. A wide variety of flowers are available in wholesale flower shops, some of which are available for special occasions like weddings, birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries, baby showers, bridal showers, and more.
Floristry consists of four major steps: preparation of flowers, production and shipping, and distribution of flowers. Preparation of flowers starts with selecting the flowers that will be used in your flower shop. Next is the selection of flowers in order to be used in the flower shop. After the selection is done, the preparation of the flowers begins. This includes preparing the flowers by washing, trimming, and other such procedures to get it ready for sale.
Next comes the manufacturing of flowers. There are two kinds of flower manufacturing processes: mechanical and chemical. In the mechanical method, synthetic flowers are created using natural materials and chemicals and then are pressed, dried, packaged, and shipped to the customers. The chemical method of flower making involves using flowers that are grown in a greenhouse. The flower is then placed in a vat filled with a certain substance, which makes the plant turn yellow. This method is much cheaper than the mechanical one.
After the flowers have been produced and dried, they are ready for shipment. Flower shops generally use flower trucks that are loaded with the flowers. They are then delivered to the customer. Flower trucks can also deliver the flowers to the customer directly if preferred by the client. Flower trucks are called by the customers themselves, at the client’s request.
The distribution of flowers is another step that is usually included in the processing of flowers, as it is required to deliver the flowers at various locations. Flower delivery service takes place when flowers need to be delivered to a customer. These include flower shops, florists, florist shops, or individual flower growers. Flower delivery service includes flower delivery companies who deliver flowers by the customer or by their own vehicle, in a truck, or by a parcel.
