Market Specials October

October 30 2008

This weeks market offered great value for money, allowing us to offer some great prices at Stems this week.  Our television ad this week sees Asiatic lilies at 3 bunches for $20 and Gerberas at only $7.00 per bunch, as well as beautiful 50cm roses in an assortment of colours at only $9.99 per bunch

Our supplier of natives has also slashed his prices on magnificent King Proteas.  The quality of these are second to none, and will make a brilliant impression in your home.  They have a long vase life, and for those who enjoy drying flowers, they will enjoy these beauties for many months.

From our Ballarat farm, we have seen the gypsophilia begin to flower.  Because of our climate in Ballarat the quality of the flowers is exceptional, including the carnations, gypsophilia, alstromeria, so we encourage people to buy the locally grown produce.  The gypsophilia will last for a long time in your vase, and can be used with many of the other products at Stems to make up a beautiful vase for a gift or your home.

The peonies have once again arrived at Stems.  We are currently purchasing these out of a Boutique farm in Meredith, and the quality of the peonies this year are exceptional.  In store we are selling the mix of colours for $25.00 per bunch.  Next week we will receive the ‘coral’ variety which is deep red (almost burgundy) in colour, and is simply stunning.  The season for the peonies is usually only about six weeks, so for those that enjoy these brilliant flowers, now is definitely the time.

With the spring carnival currently in full swing the Melbourne Florists are buzzing with Button Holes and floral accessories for the ladies.  With Ballarat Cup only two weeks away, make sure you are strutting your stuff in style with a floral accessory.  Be sure to order on line, or ring to order so you can simply pick up and avoid waiting on the day.

Many other specials are available in store so come in and have a walk through the cool room and get one of the ladies to give you some advice…
