Although with every passing year and decade trends change and the popularity of different things come and goes, florists is one business that always seems to thrive as the giving of flowers as gifts or as a message of condolence, never seems to be out of fashion. Although a large majority of the flowers which are given may have been grown in the Netherlands, fresh flowers are always available throughout the world. The florists in Singapore for instance are not alone in being able to have the freshest of flowers delivered the next day to anywhere in the country as next day delivery can be achieved in most countries on all continents and yet, most of those flowers may well have been grown in the Netherlands and flown to where they are needed.
There are many occasions when the giving of flowers is considered to be appropriate and some of those times are as gifts for a birthday or anniversary. They can be given as a token of thanks for a job well done or as part of a celebration on such occasions as graduations. They are often given to people that are sick either in a hospital or at home and of course they are given in the form of wreaths at funerals. Some men also still present them as gifts when dating or as a token of appreciation to the parents of a girlfriend, hoping to inspire trust from them. With all these different occasions for which you may want to buy flowers for someone else, it is perhaps a little bit of a dilemma as to which particular flowers would be appropriate for the occasion. Fortunately with the experience most florists have, they are able to advise you in this matter, ensuring you send appropriately.
Flowers are of course a welcome gift at any time and they are in fact rather practical as apart from just looking nice and smelling good, they do actually have a health aspect to them. As a plant, flowers take in carbon dioxide and expel oxygen and so any room that has fresh flowers in it, has a healthier atmosphere. It is for this reason that many people buy flowers or plants and keep them in their homes. Of course many people that do have plants in their homes often grow them themselves in their garden and so do not use the florists that often. Even if you do row your own flowers though, it is unlikely that you would have the appropriate ones for an occasion which flowers would be appropriate to give and so even avid gardeners will still use florists from time to time. This all means that all of us, at some time or other, regardless of the fashions and fads of the day, will visit a florists several times in our life times and so florists are likely to remain in business for the foreseeable future regardless of how the economy may change for the worse.
