What do florists do with unsold flowers?

Florists often have leftover flowers that have not been sold. But what do they do with these unsold flowers?

One option is to offer discounted sales the evening prior to restocking. This is a great way for florists to make at least some money out of older blooms. You can ask your local florist when they restock and then check the evening prior to the restock for discount sales.

Another option is to donate the unsold flowers to hospitals and care homes. This is a great way to brighten up the days of those in need and to spread a little bit of joy. Many florists are happy to donate their leftover flowers to these places.

Finally, some florists will use the unsold flowers to create new arrangements. This is a great way to give the flowers a second life and to create something beautiful.

In conclusion, there are a few options for what florists can do with unsold flowers. Discounted sales, donations to hospitals and care homes, and creating new arrangements are all great ways to make the most out of leftover blooms.
