Question: Jen, what is with your Valentine’s prices? Are you price-gouging?
Sassy Answer: Look at my car, friend.
‘Tis the season. As demand for flowers peaks, the growers and wholesalers raise their price. For some flowers, especially roses and blooms in red/white/pink, my wholesale price is doubled beginning Feb. 5th.
Much as I love you all, I have to increase my retail prices if I want to buy groceries.
For my dashing, romantic customers who want to send classic Valentine’s Day roses, I will arrange those precious blooms with care and make you look good.
If you don’t care for roses, I have stunning white calla lilies on the way, and bold red amaryllis blooms just starting to open. Most of my customers choose a seasonal hand-tied bouquet or vase arrangement full of mixed colours. Ontario freesia, tulips,and iris are gorgeous right now!
All flowers are Ontario-grown or imported from sustainable growers. Each bouquet and bunch is arranged with love, wrapped in biodegradable packaging, and delivered with a smile.

Happy Valentino, sweethearts! Thank you for letting me add some romance to your February!
Your florist and wingman,
