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.

Order Early for Your Special Valentine

We are officially into the month of love. That's right, February has arrived, which means that Valentine's Day is just around the corner on Sunday, February 14th. It's coming up quickly, and with it arriving on a Sunday this year, you have the opportunity to turn it into a weekend of fun or even a weeklong celebration. By ordering early for your special Valentine and having gifts delivered earlier in the week, you can give your loved one an even longer time to enjoy the celebration of your love. And, let's face it, with all the tough stuff we've had carried over from 2020, we could all use a little extra celebrating and love. For your favorite Finger Lakes florist, which has to still contend with many COVID-19 restrictions, contactless delivery continues to keep you all safe. However, it can sometimes limit how many deliveries we can do in a day. During one of the biggest holidays of the year, this can be challenging. We did find, however, during the holidays that encouraging people to schedule earlier deliveries enabled us to better meet all our delivery demands. Our Rochester and Canandaigua flower shops are ready to offer you a Valentine's Day collection of flowers, plants, gifts, and edible treats that your loved one will be sure to treasure. These are all available for order through our website, by phone, or in-person that you can also opt to pick up.

We also offer artisan chocolates made locally. You can add any of these onto a Valentine's Day flower or plant order to enjoy with your loved one. Other options for Valentine's Day include many adorable stuffed [...]
