B Floral's Seasonal Flower Guide

Although B Floral specializes in both floral and non-floral event design and production, working with flowers is how we first got our start as a company over 9 years ago. B Floral works with both real and faux flowers to transform installations and tablescapes alike. However, working with fresh flowers is a business that keeps you on your toes. Since most varieties are quite delicate, fresh blooms need to be taken care of and maintained properly. In fact, flowers have specific seasons in which they thrive. Just like fruits and vegetables, all flowers have an “in” season. The availability of many flower varieties is based on where on the globe the blooms are “in season” and at what time of the year. Although we try our very best to accommodate our clients’ specific flower choices at all costs, learning about different flowers’ seasonality is beneficial for anyone!
