Tips before you go shopping for flowers
Here are some tips for shopping for flowers:
- Decide on a budget: Before you start shopping, it’s a good idea to have a budget in mind so you know how much you can spend. This will help you narrow down your options and avoid overspending.
- Consider the occasion: Think about the occasion for which you are buying the flowers. Is it a birthday, anniversary, date night, marriage, or another special event? If so, choose flowers that are appropriate for the occasion.
- Think about the recipient: Consider the person who will be receiving the flowers. Do they have any allergies or specific preferences? This will help you choose the right flowers for them.
- Choose the right arrangement: Consider the size and style of the arrangement. If you are sending flowers as a gift, a large bouquet may be appropriate. If you are decorating a space, a smaller arrangement or a potted plant may be more suitable.
- Inspect the flowers carefully: Before you make a purchase, take a close look at the flowers to ensure that they are fresh and in good condition. Look for any signs of wilting or damage, and avoid flowers that appear to be wilting or dying.
- Consider the delivery: If you are sending the flowers as a gift, consider the available delivery options. Some florists offer same-day delivery, while others may require advance notice.
- Shop around: Don’t be afraid to shop around and compare prices. Prices can vary significantly from one florist to another, so it’s worth taking the time to find the best deal.
Now that you are ready, let’s have a look at some wholesale flower market in delhi.
Flower Market in Delhi
The Delhi Flower markets are exquisitely fragrant and a visual treat, supplying flowers to a diverse range of buyers ranging from event managers, wedding planners, and designer florists to small-scale vendors.
1. Ghazipur Phool Mandi
A single rose sold by a florist in your nearby area will cost around Rs 30 but the same rose will cost you Rs 15 (or maybe less!) in Ghazipur Phool Mandi. Flowers are sold here for almost one-fourth the price of a florist who is near you, and even less when purchased in bulk. So, if you are staying nearby consider going once to this Phool Market.
It is one of the largest flower markets in the city, and it is known for its variety of flowers, including roses, marigolds, and jasmine. These flowers are brought in from all over India as well as foreign countries like Thailand, China, Holland, etc. (surprised?) Marigolds, lilies, roses, orchids, Sikkim orchids, gerberas, anthuriums, and even artificial flowers in reds, oranges, yellows, pink, blues, and whites are easily available. The market is a popular destination for flower lovers and is a hub of activity, especially during festivals and special occasions when the demand for flowers is high.
The market opens at 4 in the morning.
