Hello and welcome to our first blog post of 2017, and we would first like to wish you a very happy and prosperous New Year. We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and are now looking forward to whatever this year can throw at you, hopefully it will all be good!
In todays blog we want to talk about why you should be using your local florist in 2017. The rise of supermarkets have certainly had an impact on all local florists as well as many other independent stores, and as more and more of them have branched out into selling plants and flowers many people do purchase them in there whilst they are getting their weekly shop.
But there are many advantages to purchasing your plants and flowers from a florist such as Flowery Potters, and here are a few of those reasons:
A lot of the flowers you see in supermarkets are imported in bulk and so the quality and freshness is lacking in many instances. They are not as vibrant and as colourful, and they will not last as long either.
If they are not as fresh they often have very little fragrance to them also, which of course is one of the major pluses of having flowers in the home.
Florists give you that personal service which you can`t get in a supermarket. You can`t ask one of the staff in the supermarket questions about their flowers or for any advice as all you will get is a blank look! If you want a friendly, personal touch and expert advice use a local florist.
You have a much wider range of plants and flowers to choose from in a florists.
If you want a special arrangement it is no good going to a supermarket, you need to go to a specialist who knows exactly how to arrange flowers to see them at their best and to display them perfectly.
Florists cater for all sorts of special occasions including weddings, funerals, Mothers Day, Valentines Day and corporate events etc etc.
There are many other reasons why you should use your local florist in 2017, and especially Flowery Potters! So why not do yourselves a favour and call into our florist at the earliest opportunity for the freshest flowers around! We look forward to seeing you soon.
