There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes when it comes to providing professional florist services. SmartB users know that florists are all about arranging and caring for flowers, but there’s more to it than a pretty vase.

What you didn’t know about SmartB florists

#1 – They’re early birds

Being a professional florist means starting work early. Although SmartB service providers can choose their own work schedule, many SmartB users want their flower delivery in the morning – in time for their event, business opening hours and so forth. Florists are often up early in the morning to cut and process flowers, make flower arrangements and organise orders.

#2 – Timing matters

Flowers don’t last long before they begin to wilt. That means that florists are always racing against time to arrange and deliver flower orders. They have to make sure that the buds have bloomed by the time the SmartB user receives it.

#3 – They want you to follow care instructions

Flowers only last for a few days, so it’s important that you properly care for them. If you want your flowers to last as long as possible, check their water level every day, use the powdered flower food your florist would have provided and keep the flowers in a clean vase. Don’t expose them to too much direct sunlight or heat.

#4 – The pricing is reasonable

If you purchase flowers from a SmartB florist instead of a wholesale flower market, you can expect to pay a little extra. These prices are reasonable, considering that a florist’s work requires more than just time and labour – there’s also the cost of the vase, accessories, delivery and more.

#5 – They love working with flowers

Our SmartB florists see their work as an artistic outlet – one that allows them to express their creativity and passion and work with a wide range of textures, colours, scents and heights. Every season brings in new flowers to work with; the colour palette is always changing. This helps intrigue and excite SmartB florists – and is a part of why they do what they do!
