Why Flowers Have Risen in Price
1. Limited Imports Our flower industry relies heavily on imported products. Due to COVID-19, they are not flooding in like they used to.
2. Increased Transport Costs As we know, Australia is a really long way from everywhere. With limited international flights happening, the cost of putting flowers on planes has increased.
3. Post Bushfire Times With everything going on in the world at the moment it's easy to forget that just a few months ago our country was on fire. A lot of our regular growers were severley impacted by that experience, meaning domestic flower supply is also impacted.
4. Cold Weather The weather seemed to just change overnight. That cold snap which started right around Mother's Day has impacted the volume of product that growers can supply.
5. Increased Demand With social distancing requirements, more people are sending flowers in lieu of visiting their loved ones in person.
Having said all this, Sea Rose Florist is still trading and doing the best we can to keep providing a service to the public and our regular customers. We are still sourcing the best quality flowers that we can, for the best price we can, so that we keep the price rises to the lowest we can.
