Partnering with the right carnation grower to best benefit your floral businessCarnations are one of the most popular flowers in the US, often considered a more cost-effective version of the rose. They are requested for weddings, proms and other events as well as general flower giving, thanks to their wide variety of available colors, their highly fragrant nature and their longevity of beauty. Carnation growers offer carnation seed packets, carnation flowers and wholesale carnations, giving you a range of carnation options for your floral business.
Choose from miniature carnations or full-sized blooms in multiple colors. To find the best carnation growers and purchase the carnation varieties most popular with your customers, you should:
1. Survey your customers about the sizes and colors of carnation they prefer to help you determine which ones to offer in your floral shop.
2. Purchase carnations or carnation seed from a reputable carnation grower that offers quick service and quality guarantees.
3. Ask for wholesale carnation flowers, shipping discounts and other deals to save money and in turn pass the savings on to your customers.
Decide on the breeds and colors of carnation to offer
Purchase carnations or carnation seeds from a reputable carnation growerWhen looking for a carnation supplier, find one with a large variety of carnations that are fresh cut. You want a grower who has been in the business awhile and can offer solid references. If you are looking for custom carnations, find a company offering genetically modified carnations for decorative purposes only, not edible.
Ask for wholesale carnation flowers, shipping discounts and other deals to save moneyDon't be afraid to ask for discounts or purchase through a wholesale carnation grower. You should be entitled to discounts if the carnations are not fresh cut, if it's the end of the season, if you are purchasing a large quantity or if you offer to pick up the carnations instead of have them delivered.
- Carnations are a hardy flower, perfect for transport and storing. If you have the space, order extras to feature in your coolers for "grab-and-go" customers who are in a hurry or for those quick, last minute arrangements. The more colorful your coolers are with these fragrant and happy flowers, the better for you and your business.
