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.

Drought, wildfire and the unpredicted flooding has caused much damage to flower crops. Interestingly, Weddings are going through a boom period.

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.
