An online poll has revealed how you can help support floral supply in Melbourne.
More than 400 people have responded to the poll.
The poll has asked participants to nominate floral suppliers in Melbourne’s CBD, on their doorstep, or at flower supply shops.
Flower supply has become a popular option for floral supply owners, with floral suppliers often receiving an influx of flowers to stock their supply chains.AFLW president Brendon Gale says the association is happy to support floral suppliers.
“It’s very important for the businesses that have the ability to stock, to be able to supply that floral stock in a way that maximises the benefit for their customers,” he said.
“We’re supporting floral supply because we want to make sure that our floral supply business has the best of supply chains, and we want our supply chains to have the best in the industry.”
Fellow AFLW president Michael Dyson says floral supply has been an important part of his organisation’s business for some time.
“Foliage supply is not a new concept, it’s been a part of the flower industry for some years, it was something we had to adapt to the modern world,” he says.
“So it’s great that we can help out the floral industry and support our members in that industry, we’re happy to do that.”
Flower suppliers are encouraged to include the word floral in their supply description to help attract customers.
