Florists & Designers
For our wholesale customers.
Our growing season is at its height from February/March to September/October. Florist newsletters are sent more frequently as inventory are at its peak during this time period. In October to January, newsletters are more intermittent and sent out only as inventory becomes available. During this winter respite, we grow less so that the flower farm can focus on planning for the next Spring growing season.
The 2023 Season Production List will be sent after registration and with all the florist newsletters. For visual references, we recommend you look through the Dahlia Gallery, Chrysanthemums Gallery, Flower Gallery, and Fillers/Foliage Gallery to see what we grow and its general seasonal availability. In addition, our florist-only newsletter will contain information about upcoming and current availability.
For the most up-to-date inventory, sign in directly to our website. Only registered florists will have access to this inventory.
We do not post all of our inventory (a full year's worth), if we did then there would be 200+ items to scroll through. We post items that are available or will soon be available. Items may show up as "SOLD OUT", however new inventory is added daily and may be released. On each product page, add your e-mail to be notified when that item is available. You are also welcome to inquire with us about availability, or if you need more bunches of a specific item.
REQUEST AN ACCOUNT
You can request to become a wholesale customer by signing up for an account. When you login and make an account, we’ll get an alert stating someone has requested an account. You will get an approval email to let you know you’re setup in the system. If you don't receive this email within 24 hours of requesting an account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to check in.
This allows us to be sure that ONLY WHOLESALE CUSTOMERS can see pricing and order through this system. Thank you for your understanding!
To get set up with us and receive wholesale pricing, you will need to be a florist or event designer with a Seller's Permit. Once registered, we will provide access to our real time online ordering system. New inventory is added every week, typically on weekends. Note that prices and availability are subject to change due to the nature of the business. Our newsletter, season production list, and gallery will help you plan the use of our local, seasonal flowers in your future event work.
The website store will show what is available in real time and orders are taken via purchasing on the website store ONLY. Although we may take orders via email or phone, the online store inventory is the most direct and quickest way to order what is in stock. In addition, we send out newsletters when new products are available. This newsletter provides more details, colors, and pricing of flowers that will be available in the coming weeks.
Orders need to be in at least 24 hours prior to delivery to allow us time to plan and harvest our cut flowers. To guarantee delivery of your order for the next day, please order before 6 p.m. Local deliveries are made between 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily.
At checkout, choose a 4 hour delivery window. The soonest we can deliver your order will be 24 hours later. For example, if you order at 10:30 a.m., the soonest 4 hour window you can choose is 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. If you need an order sooner than 24 hours from time of initial order, please call us to make a plan. If you need the order at a specific time due to an event, please contact us so that we can coordinate delivery times.
All deliveries will need to be made within 2 weeks of the order date as fresh flowers are harvested and can only be held for a pre-determined time.
For flowers more than 2 weeks in advance, contact us at email@example.com with a wish list of items you're looking for. We will contact you 2 weeks out from your order date to finalize details and send an invoice. Indicate the:
- Buyer name & company
- Phone number & e-mail
- Date order is needed
- Delivery or pickup location
- Color palette
- Availability: We will send you the Season Production List and add you to our Florists Weekly Newsletter. You can also log into the florist site as well as view the gallery pages to get an idea of what's available and when.
- Wish List: Tell us about your wish list and approximate number of bunches of flowers, foliage, or greenery (ie 2 bunches trailing foliage, 2 bunches dark red flowers, 4 bunches blush dahlias, 2 bunches Ariadne butterfly ranunculus, etc). The more flexible you are - the higher the likelihood we can fill all of your requests! But you can be specific as well if you just have to have an exact item. We are always happy to assist with expert suggestions - we know our products well (how long they last, timing of when products are grown, etc).
- Substitutions: We accept requests for specific types of flowers but cannot guarantee that they will be available due to variations in the weather. We will do our best to accommodate specific requests but sometimes substitutions may be necessary. If we do not have the exact item you're looking for then indicate if you're okay with substitutions based on: flower type (same flower in similar color), color palette (same color but different flower), or no substitutions.
If you have interesting and unique flowers that you MUST have that we do not provide - we welcome suggestions! We can work with you to bring new products on line. We're always growing and trialing new flowers, foliage, and greenery to bring to market. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org 6 months or more in advance with your ideas!
