Florists in Bundaberg are heavily influenced by seasonal events such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, weddings and anniversaries. Traditionally in western culture these occasions require the gesture of giving flowers and therefore floral businesses prepare for these seasonal days in order to sell flowers. Florists usually display their flowers within shop to be
purchased that can include other items such as soft toys and chocolates. Flowers that are usually stocked are rose, tulips, irises, roses and lilies. When florists are required to create an arrangement they usually have a separate workspace within the shop to create arrangements from scratch to suit the customers needs.
