While the urban jungle trend popular among millennials is focussed around mostly green and tropical houseplants, don’t forget that a huge propotion of customers of all tastes and generations are more likely to be attracted by colourful, blooming flowers. Lilies (Lilium) have a powerful presence with bright, majestic blooms and often an exquisite fragrance. They’re more commonly known as a cut flower rather than a houseplant so stocking them potted up and ready to grow could be a winning strategy for your business.  And of course, the colour choice is extensive from red, yellow, orange and pink through to bi-coloured cultivars and pastel shades.

Calling all florists who’ve just opened or moved! We’re updating our mailing list so we’re requesting addresses from any flower business that has opened or changed premises in the last few years. Not only will it mean you’ll be first to receive any printed special mail or magazines, it will also give you a chance to win as we’ll pull three names from the list of new addresses and each will scoop £50 worth of M&S vouchers.
