Rockcastle Florist encourages Early Ordering for Valentine’s Day

Rockcastle Florist Early Ordering for Valentine's Day Understandably, the supply chain issue has impacted the Flower industry. While Rockcastle Florist strives to always provide best in the industry service to customers, we too are working to stay ahead of supply issues. 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.
