Flowers are great gifts for everyone, regardless of age, gender and profession. It has been scientifically proven that flowers are a great way of cheering people up and making them feel happy and calmer.
So one of the most frequently asked question is “where can I purchase flowers?” This question does not have a single answer. If you are left confused about finding a place where to buy your flowers from, this article is perfect for you. It will indicate all the different places where you would be able to purchase the perfect flowers.
The first place is one that is known solely for selling flowers, and that is the floristry. There are many florists offering their services to everyone. By going to the florist, not only will you be able to find the perfect flowers for you, but you will also be able to get all the additional services that they offer. This includes personalised arrangements, personalised gifts etc.
If you do not have a florist nearby, you have the option of going to a gardening centre, where you will find a large variety of plants and flowers. The good thing about going to a gardening centre is that you can find fully grown flowers as well as flower bulbs, should you wish to grow your own. Gardening centres also have specialists you can talk to about how to grow your own plants.
Department stores now also have a gardening section where you can find many different flowers. Once again, you can choose between buying fully grown flowers, flower seeds or bulbs. Department stores are more common to find than gardening stores or florists.
Large supermarkets have also started selling flowers. You may not have a choice as large as you would find at a florist or a gardening centre, but you are bound to find something that will tickle your fancy. Not all supermarkets will sell bulbs or seeds since the sale of these usually depend on the time of year. However, additional necessary supplies such as vases can be purchased from these supermarkets too.
Some corner shops and newsagents have started selling flowers too. You may find that these places are only selling small arrangements of the most basic flowers. But should you require some flowers at the last minute, then corner shop flowers may be perfect for you.
If your city has a market, you will find numerous flower stalls offering the freshest flowers in many different colours, shapes and sizes. You may have the choice to choose between fully grown flowers and seedlings. You may find that the stalls at the market will charge you a lot less than a florist or a large supermarket, so it is always worth to check them out.
Last but not least, if you really do not have any other options, you can purchase your flowers from the petrol station! That’s right – the petrol station. However, what you need to know is that these flowers are not going to last very long thanks to the exposure to exhaust and petrol fumes, so do not purchase them as an anniversary gift for your wife.
There are many places from where you can purchase your flowers. With more and more institutions starting to sell flowers, getting a hold of your perfect bunch does not have to be a daunting task. Most institutions have trained staff who know about flowers and can easily answer any queries that you may have about growing flowers, maintaining them, purchasing the right flowers to portray a certain message and so on.
