cut flower question

flowerchick(6 NJ)March 10, 2005

Hi all, I'm trying to pull together some flowers in vases for a friend's bridal shower. Any suggestions where to get cut flowers reasonably priced? A further problem: The bride likes sunflowers. TIA.

On each trip to the supermarket, I notice that they sell bunches of cut flowers priced @ 3 bunches for $10.00 and are very pretty. I do not usually buy cut flowers from the nurseries, usually plants, shrubs and trees.

Perhaps someone else has some thoughts....

I tend to buy myself cut flowers all the time. Especially once i find a good florist and toward the beginning of spring where i just die to see flowers, before you know it my kitchen and computer room is full of flowers. LOL I've bought those flowers the bunches for 3 for $10 and they usually last me two weeks sometimes three.

where are you from?

oh and forgot my message to flowerchick

Where are you from? What other types of flowers does the bride-to-be enjoy? I must say you are yet another sign that i am meant for florida. When I think of Orchids I think of home - Hawaii. I also hear that Florida has my a flower that is very dear to my heart Plumeria...did you grow any of those while in florida?

Hi Hawaii, I'm actually from South Jersey, now living in North Jersey. Florida was basically a three-year detour. :) I did grow a couple of plumerias down there -- one was always sickly and died, the other I gave away before we moved. I figured it would never do well up here. The palm tree is suffering as it is.

You probably would like Florida, because it did feel somewhat similar to Hawaii -- we honeymooned on Kauai and loved it! But personally and professionally, FL wasn't working out for us.

As far as I know, the bride-to-be mainly likes sunflowers. I was figuring on one or two of those per vase, then filling it out with whatever other flowers were handy. Any supermarkets/stores better than others? I was planning on checking out Trader Joe's tomorrow.
