This year's events, festivities and celebrations are experiencing a change amid the ongoing outbreak. Also for Halloween, which is becoming an increasingly popular 'holiday' for the flower industry changes are expected. However, still, there is a demand for fresh blossoms in the market as people considerably prefer fresh-cut flowers for decor. Orange daisies, red roses, purple orchids and yellow carnations are some of the blossoms that are in high demand", Melbourne Fresh Flowers in Australia reports.
More online flower delivery
Amid safety concerns, people are choosing online flower delivery rather than buying them from markets. This pandemic is an opportunity in disguise for many online florists to grow their sales. According to a survey, some floral shops hit the mark of 600% growth in terms of online delivery.
Also this year's spooky festivity will be quite different from the former years in certain areas. "First, people are preferring to order Halloween flowers online from their nearest florist rather than going out. And, the government has also recommended people to avoid doors for trick-or-treating if they are in self-isolation."
Events during pandemic
Both the government and citizens are taking the best possible safety measures to avoid an unsafe condition. Many countries, including the USA, have cancelled their Halloween events for containing the spread. On the other side, Australia will also experience certain restrictions for maintaining safety. However, the government has not cancelled any Halloween event but urged people to wear masks and go out carefully.
Growth in flower demand over the years
Majority of florists in Australia rely on the export of fresh flowers from countries like the Netherlands and Kenya. But, due to the COVID-19, people are emphasizing on locally grown flowers. This year seems to be great for local florists and growers as demand for fresh and organic flowers have overgrown in a short span this year.
