Wholesale Flowers

First things first. It is critical that anyone considering buying or selling in the wholesale flowers business realize that this is a massive industry. There are, literally, hundreds of top-quality suppliers and well-established companies that provide the finest blooms to be found anywhere. The choices in colors, types of cut flowers and accessories has grown to the point that just choosing a supplier can be a dizzying affair.

But there is good news – most of the merchants in the wholesale flowers business have a bit more than the profit motive in mind. Many of them are truly passionate about flowers and about giving the wholesale flowers customer the most beautiful product for their money.

A second piece of great news – many of the suppliers of wholesale flowers will provide any item in their catalog at wholesale pricing, to the individual, with no sales tax or business license requirements. This means that anyone can enjoy the most beautiful flowers in the world without having to meet some of the retail/reseller requirements. Of course, there are wholesale flowers suppliers who work exclusively with retail stores, designers and professionals who supply this tax/license information. But a few simple questions and a bit of reading in the catalog or online will clarify the company's policies.

If you are concerned about getting the right type of flower, in the right amount and in colors that match your needs, never fear. Some of the long-standing wholesale flowers merchants have people with decades of experience in the flower business, in addition to horticulturists and professional designers on staff.

What specific features should you ask about when starting with a new wholesale flowers supplier? It may be best to begin with a question or two about the guarantee policy. Find out, from the beginning, how you will be treated if the flowers you order are not fresh, are damaged, or if the order is simply not correct. With products such as cut flowers, floral displays, as well as with other perishable items such as food, it is always good to have solid knowledge of the guarantees and warranties provided by the seller.

Some wholesale flowers merchants take a great deal of pride in the fact that they not only supply flowers in large amounts and get the orders right, but that they have actual stores and showrooms that allow them to display their product to visitors and potential buyers. There are companies in the wholesale flowers business that are actually brokers, office-bound individuals who "broker" flowers between the grower and the customer. While many of these folks are quite good and have excellent track records, those companies that can actually see their flowers and control their condition on a daily basis do have an advantage.

Finally, make sure that you understand how many stems are in a "bunch" of flowers, if you purchase wholesale flowers by the bunch. In addition, ask what the minimum order is and find out when "free shipping" kicks in. With some companies, this can start as low as $100 or $150. Before you confirm an order, online or on the phone, make sure you understand how, and when the flowers will be shipped. You will probably then be ready to enjoy the hundreds of varieties of roses, carnations, lilies and other fine flowers from a wholesale flowers supplier.
