The Most Recommended Winter Flowers by Melbourne Florist Cassy of Flowers for Jane

During winter in Melbourne, florists face a unique challenge when it comes to promising specific flowers in arrangements. The reason behind this difficulty lies in the sourcing process of the products from mother nature.

Why is it difficult to promise specific flowers in arrangements during winter?

Florists in Melbourne rely on the natural cycle of flowers for their products. Farmers grow some flowers in hothouses however during winter, the availability of certain flowers can be limited due to the colder weather conditions. This can make it challenging for florists to guarantee the inclusion of specific blooms in arrangements.

What can customers expect when ordering flower arrangements in winter?

Customers ordering flower arrangements during winter should understand that florists may need to make substitutions based on the availability of flowers. While florists strive to create arrangements as close to the customer's preferences as possible, they may need to make adjustments to accommodate the seasonal limitations.

Despite the challenges of sourcing flowers in Melbourne during winter, florists work diligently to provide beautiful and high-quality arrangements for their customers. By understanding the impact of seasonal changes on flower availability, customers can appreciate the artistry and effort that goes into creating each unique arrangement.
