Brisbane Flower Market is extending its trading hours in the lead up to the biggest event on every florist’s calendar: Mother’s Day.
Surpassing Valentine’s Day for flower orders, Brisbane Flower Market florists are expecting high demand for Mother’s Day at the wholesale flower hub in Rocklea from both wholesale customers and the general public, with their cold rooms full of flowers in anticipation.
Brisbane Flower Market spokesperson, Luke Leeson, said that while supplies have been impacted by February and March’s wet weather, a range of flowers including tulips, chrysanthemums, dahlias, carnations, roses and lisianthus continue to flow into the market ready for Mother’s Day.
“While there are plenty of flowers available for Mother’s Day, to keep bunches cost effective, we recommend going for florist’s choice seasonal mixes and preferred colour schemes rather than specific flowers,” he said.
“Most florists have online ordering and delivery options available, just make sure you get your orders in early to ensure your florist has enough stock available and to ensure your bouquet can be delivered on time. So, no waiting until the Mother’s Day weekend this year!”
The Brisbane Flower Market will be trading as usual from 5am to 3pm on Tuesday to Friday, 3 to 6 May, and will open from 6am to 1pm on Saturday, 7 May and 6am until sold out on Sunday, 9 May to ensure no one misses out on flowers for Mum.
To see the Brisbane Flower Market and its cold rooms at their fullest, the media are invited to attend the site to take footage on Wednesday, 4 May before 10am.
