“Buying wholesale flowers can be an overwhelming experience for the average person who needs a lot of flowers but isn’t sure exactly what to do with them,” said Silva. “Many brides and party planners are inspired by do-it-yourself (D.I.Y.) websites, like Pinterest, and they need a website that helps them create that look. At Rosenerds they can do that.”
Rosenerds is a clean, modern website that sells a wide variety of wholesale flowers including roses, carnations, hydrangeas, daisies, orchids, and more. And flowers are added daily. The website offers step-by-step flower care advice and design tips to help turn bulk flowers into beautiful arrangements and bouquets.
Where Do Most Wholesale Flowers Come From?According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), consumers in the U.S. consumed $25.7 billion in floral products in 2013. The estimate includes bedding and garden plants along with cut flowers, indoor green and flowering plants and other related products. Of that 25.7 billion in floral products, Imported cut flowers and greens account for 79% of the total U.S. supply according to the California Cut Flower Commission.
Rosenerds and their domestically grown, wholesale flowers fresh from the farm want to raise the bar on the quality of domestically sold wholesale flowers and lower the overall cost to the consumer while providing free shipping.
What Are The Best Selling Wholesale Flowers?The top-selling flowers based on stem counts are roses, carnations (standard), chrysanthemums (pompon), alstroemeria, tulips, lilies, mini-carnations. This ranking, by the Society Of American Florists (SAF), is based on total stem counts determined by adding the domestic production to the import figures.
What Are Wholesale Flowers Purchased For?Not only are wholesale flowers purchased for Wedding Bouquets and events, but they are popular among schools, dances/recitals, restaurants and more. Rosenerds can be used to sell flowers individually, or to create custom-made arrangements that can be sold for profit for many different occasions.
“Wholesale roses and carnations are very popular, especially during holidays, like Valentine’s day and Mother’s day,” Silva said. “Since the cost is so cheap, compared to buying retail, fundraisers are able to raise profits and have successful fundraising campaigns year-round.”
Rosenerds offers free FedEx shipping on all U.S. orders. And also sells online gift certificates for anyone who wants to give the gift of wholesale flowers, like one would find on a wedding registry.
