Flower markets are very useful if you want to buy discount flowers in bulk. Wholesale flower markets offer fresh-cut flowers, plants, and related products at wholesale prices. You can locate wholesale flowers markets on the Internet or in you local telephone directory. The markets are meant for florists and businesses, however they usually have special hours for the general public when, even if you are not entitled to wholesale prices, you'll still be able to buy cheap flowers.
Another advantage of the wholesale flower markets is that they offer an excellent selection of flower arranging accessories, such as ribbons, baskets, wire, and pins, which will allow you to create a unique arrangement without spending much.
Wholesale flowers sold in the market are intended for resale, so their buds might be closed. If you are buying flowers for a certain date, go to the market a couple of days in advance to allow the buds to open.
Be sure to take your time and check the entire market for prices and variety. It's unlikely that you will not find the best prices close to the entrance. Remember that the more you buy from a single vendor, the bigger discount you might get.
Check that the stems are freshly cut and the leaves and buds are firm. When you return from the wholesale flower market fill a bathtub with cold water. Remove the wrappings, make fresh cuts on all stems and put the flowers in the water until you arrange them into bouquets.
