Some flowers spoke with strong and powerful voices, which proclaimed in accents trumpet-tongued, “I am beautiful, and I rule.” Others murmured in tones scarcely audible, but exquisitely soft and sweet, “I am better, I am beloved.” George Sand
It is less expensive to order flowers that are in season. They are the best value at the moment. These days growers come from every corner of the world, and something is in season somewhere nearly all the time. For example, tulips, daffodils and iris are in season February, March and April, and therefore in greater abundance and generally less expensive.
Roses are less abundant in January and February, which adds to their “priciness” in February when just about everyone wants them.
Here is a picture of Eden Florist’s Garden of Sunshine arrangement. Notice the green tulips in the bouquet. Those are plentiful from February to early May and then although they are available they are more expensive from June thru January.
