Rockcastle Florist Early Ordering for Valentine’s Day

Rockcastle Florist makes Early Ordering for Valentine’s Day very convenient and easy. As we are getting closer to Valentine’s Day, please consider placing your order for flowers now.


Early Valentine’s Flower Ordering

  • Due to the pandemic, there were fewer than normal plantings at flower farms. What is more, farm owners were forced to shut down because of the need to quarantine. Consequently, they were forced to lay off workers. In some cases, they had to shut down their farms completely.  An estimated 247,717 floral worker jobs were lost between 2019 and 2020.
  • South America is one of the top countries for flower production. The growing conditions have historically been very good on that continent. However, recent weather pattern changes have caused colder nights and more rain than is required. Therefore, the health of flower plants has been negatively affected. Similarly, U.S. Flower Farms have suffered as well. For example, California is a top flower producer. Drought, wildfire and the unpredicted flooding has caused much damage to flower crops.
  • Interestingly, Weddings are going through a boom period. According to reports there were 1.3 million weddings in 2020. Then in 2021 that grew to 1.93 million. It is predicted that there could be 2.47 million in 2022. Of course, this will most likely normalize once the back log of delayed weddings is addressed. For this reason, it is easy to see what a strain this has placed on flower shoppes.


 Adjustments to Flower Shortage

Rockcastle Florist has a strong desire to delight customers with service and beautiful flowers. With this in mind, we have made adjustments to our practices and communications to our customers. Below are some areas we have focused on to make this supply chain issue as easy to embrace as we can.

  • In our communications to customers, we have conveyed to customers the current flower shortage we are dealing with. As a result, there are some cases where clients may need to be more flexible in their flower arrangement selection.
  • Earlier ordering is key to help us have the best chance of meeting our customer’s specific product needs. Not only with selection but also meeting delivery deadlines.
  • Rockcastle Florist has extremely talented floral designers. We are using those talents to create wonderful arrangements. Our mission is to create the most elegant and beautiful bouquets and arrangements working with what we have. Most people do know that talented designers can make a Rose look like a Peony or a Tulip to look like a Gardenia.
