The best places for getting flowers in the country are in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh, according to a new report by The Times of India.
“The country has been hit hard by the ongoing drought,” said Vinod Bhatia, president of The Times.
“There is no easy way to get a flower in the capital, Mumbai, but the capital is a great place to get one,” he added.
“You can get a large flower and then go to your local market, where there are a lot of vendors selling flowers.”
Bhatie said that if you were to live in Mumbai, you would have a lot more choices for the flowers you want to buy.
“Mumbai is the city of choice for many people,” he said.
“It has a lot to offer for the flower market,” he went on.
“In fact, it’s a city that offers a lot in terms of flowers, so you’ll get the flowers that you want,” he explained.
The city also offers a wide range of flower vendors, from flower sellers to bazaar sellers, according the report.
“Even though flowers are a bit expensive, it can be worth the money,” said Bhati.
“A small price is worth a lot.
You can get something for as little as 50 rupees.”
“I bought a large floral in Mumbai for Rs 50,” said Nandini, a flower vendor in Kalyan.
“I had a lot on my plate.
I couldnt go anywhere else,” she added.
She said that she would usually pay up to Rs 1,000 for the same flower.
“Every time, I have to ask the vendor to take it off my hands,” she said.
Many people in the city also use flowers as currency, said Bhaumik, who was a flower seller in Gwalior for about five years.
“For me, flowers are not just a gift,” he told NDTV.
“They are also a way of giving to others.
I would go to the market to buy flowers.
I get a lot from the people who come here.”
“My shop sells flower for Rs 5,” said another flower seller, Rajan.
Rajan also said that there are flower shops that sell flowers at very cheap prices.
“People are buying flowers for Rs 100 or Rs 300,” he remarked.
“Many people are buying for Rs 10 to 15,” said a flower shop owner in Gurgaon.
“And the price is usually lower than that,” he continued.
“Most of the flowers sold in my shop are for Rs 20 to 25,” he elaborated.
“My customers love the prices.”
The Times spoke to flower sellers, flower shops, bazaars, flower vendors and bazaar vendors about their experiences in Mumbai.
Flower sellers and bazaards also spoke to NDTV about the value of their business.
“One of the best things that you can get is a large, big flower,” said Kishore Sharma, a vendor in Patna.
“Usually, a large bouquet will be around Rs 500.
If I give a bouquet of flowers at Rs 20, it is only Rs 20,” he recalled.
“But if I give it at Rs 40, I get two bouquets,” he noted.
“Sometimes, if the flowers are bigger, it will cost more,” said Shruti, another flower vendor.
“If I give flowers at the lower price, people will take them,” she told NDtv.
“Some people will buy flowers at 25 rupees and then take them to the bazaar,” she explained.
Bazaar vendors also spoke about the importance of flowers.
“Flowers are a way to show your affection for others,” said Anu Sharma, owner of a flower bazaar in the southern city of Mumbai.
“What you want from a bouquette is to be appreciated,” she shared.
“This is how I make my customers happy,” she further explained.
“Don’t get too emotional when you are selling flowers.
Don’t think of yourself as a flower.”
“The flowers I sell are made from different kinds of flowers,” said an auctioneer at a bazaar.
“So you have to make sure the price reflects the quality of the flower,” he shared.
According to a flower market vendor, the quality and price of flowers are also important.
“We sell only the most expensive flowers,” she admitted.
“That way, the price of the price doesn’t fluctuate too much.”
“You want to have a good impression of a vendor and to show them your gratitude for their help,” said one flower seller at a market.
“At the end of the day, the flowers we sell are for the customers who buy them.
It is a good way to make money,” she elaborated.
Bhatyia, who has lived in Mumbai since 1992, said that he did not think that the
