VALENTINE’S DAY CHECKLIST
Now is the time to gear up for Valentine’s Day, which is only about three weeks away!

Click here to check out Floranext’s step-by-step checklist that will make it easier for you to get and stay organized and increase your profits during this busy floral holiday.
Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, and many retail florists experience higher sales when Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday. We haven’t had a weekday Valentine’s Day since 2014, when the holiday fell on a Friday, and more than 90 percent of florists surveyed by the Society of American Florists (SAF) said they are expecting higher sales this year compared to Feb. 14 last year, which was on a Sunday.

SHORTAGES OF LEATHERLEAF ARE LIKELY FOR VALENTINE’S DAY
Some foliage growers in Central Florida are still reeling from a devastating hit last October from Hurricane Matthew. The aftermath of the storm could lead to shortages of leatherleaf on Valentine’s Day, with some estimates placing total crop loss at more than 50 percent and some growers seeing 100 percent losses.

The year 2016 has ended, and Parfum Flower Company, a specialty Dutch importer and wholesaler of fragrant garden roses, researched its website and social channels to find out what were the most popular garden roses of 2016 — the biggest sellers and those that were talked about the most.

The table is set, and you’re invited to an artisan dinner of a lifetime, where you’ll take your seat among the exquisite fields of America’s most stunning flower and foliage farms.

Seasonal, local and sustainable blooming flowers dazzle on white-linen tables elegantly dressed by top U.S. floral designers, and farm-to-table chefs prepare scrumptious meals.

DESPITE LIVING A DIGITAL LIFE, 98 PERCENT OF GENERATION Z STILL SHOP IN STORE

NEW STUDY PROVIDES STRATEGIES TO GET MILLENNIALS TO BUY FLOWERS

The study, titled "Marketing Tactics to Increase Millennial Floral Purchases" and sponsored by Asocolflores, explores innovative marketing strategies and tactics to better target millennials, who are key to the future of the floral industry. The study reveals ways to effectively attract millennials to floral products, as well as data on their attitudes, preferences and barriers to purchasing flowers.
