Starting a Flower Business

Starting a flower business is different than starting a florist business because the florist business deals with all different aspects of flower design; everyday flowers, wedding flower arrangements, funeral flower arrangements, parties and events.

Flower Fairy

I consider a flower business to a business which concentrates in one "Flower Niche".  It can be just a plant (rental) only business, or just orchids business, or focus only on parties and weddings.

Buying or starting a flower business?

Whether or not you are beginning a florist or a flower business, you find yourself at the crossroad of big decisions.

There are so many considerations to start a flower business. On one side the dream of financial success, on the other side the wrong decision could become a financial disaster.

To answer the many questions I receive I prepared the form below to create a forum where answers can be addressed to all and all learn from each other.

At the end, the last decision about starting a flower business will solely depend on you.

Flower Business Ideas

Starting a flower niche is the best way to succed. From potted orchids shops, to wedding floral decorator, or officescape decorators, new floral entrepreneurs can establish themselves with their creative power.

Before you start a flower business, or buy one, seek the advice of a qualified or trusted consultant who can discern the proper planning or reasoning for your decision. Even if you are a professional seek advice.

Good Luck and may the flower fairy be with you.
