Celosia, Celosia, Celosia!

Bombay

Plumosa
We have a lot of Celosia blooming! The colours are so rich that it makes them look yummy! This crop is a first for some of our staff and we are all loving it. It is very fun to work with and it just adds some more 'oomph' to your bouquets.
 




 
In the Bombay, we have:
Fisal Salmon
Fidor Gold
Firosa Rose 
Fivio Purple
(don't those sounds yummy?)

Mellow Yellow!!

Florex Gold
Look who has fiiiinally decided to show up! We shipped our very first yellow pail of the season to the auction this morning! The yellow callas have always been a favourite with our staff. Very bright and really cheerful (not to mention they look fantastic with all of the sunflowers that we grow - which are on their way! And are looking great!) 

The greenhouse is looking really great too with all of the colours and different crops coming in. Our staff are all very excited for the upcoming summer and hope that you will enjoy the floral side with us!

Boxed Product

Some of our clients prefer to have their products delivered in boxes, especially when it is a large order. Not only does it take up less space for shipping, it is also another way of protecting the product. 

We have all sorts of different sized boxes that we have used for our callas, tulips, sunflowers, peonies and other small crops that we grow.

Every time our staff package in boxes, we find ourselves just overwhelmed with how beautiful they really are. It's just like opening up a gift, and we hope that all of our clients feel the same way when our boxes arrive at their destination!

"Who wouldn't want to open up a box full of flowers?"

"I wouldn't mind getting one of these for my anniversary!"

Packaging Our Products


Red Alert

At Frico Flowers, our staff take a lot of pride in knowing that our flowers look BEAUTIFUL!
In past seasons we have had some trouble with our taller callas travelling far distances. By being moved around so much, they bang into the sides of the pail and bruise the stems or damage them to the point where florists will have to cut them down to almost half of their height. This year we are trying something a little different. We are sleeving anything 65cm in length to make their journey more gentle and to prevent this from happening.

If you order some taller calls from us, we would love to hear how they look once you have recieved them. As always, feedback is really appreciated!

We hope you enjoy the season with us!
