Market Report 28th October 2010

October 28 2010

Another massive load of freshly cut flowers have made their way back to Ballarat.  Spring has finally arrived with most lines being in plentiful supply.  We managed to pick up some First grade asiatic lilies for our advertised special of $6.99 per bunch.  Its very hard to go past, both in price and a brilliant vase life.

We also bought some ‘cold house’ roses that really cannot be described.  Their aroma, and their head size are amazing.  Only available this week in a deep red, however in weeks to come, we are promised a beautiful soft pink.

Our gerbera supplier ‘Buncha’ have come to the party this week for our other advertised line.  Large bunches of gerberas for only $6.99… again the quality is terrific.

As mentioned last week, the waratahs are a stand out, as are all the natives at the moment.  The proteas, leucodendrons, pin wheels, and various foliages produce a beautiful bouquet, that have a very long shelf life.

From the farm, the ranunculi have slowed up and will come to an end shortly.  The carnation numbers have lifted a little, whilst the alstromeria production has boomed.  So much so that for every purchase in store this week (and maybe next week…) you will receive a free bunch of alstromeria. Madness!!!!
