New Zealand flower growers have been under pressure in recent years to compete with an ever expanding market for imported flowers and foliage. The history of domestic production is long and rich, we don’t want to see such an important area of commerce die out.
To flower retailers, NZ flowers and foliage are enjoying a long-awaited resurgence in support.
We want to encourage that support and help to educate the NZ consumer on what really happens ‘behind-the-scenes’ of the industry, so to speak.
New Zealand Grown flowers and foliage should be enjoyed year-round but especially during their peak seasons of spring and summer when production is high and therefore availability increases.
We hope to encourage Growers, wholesalers, florists and the NZ consumer to become more passionate than ever about local and seasonal flowers.
NZ Flowers Week is a chance for everyone to show their support for locally grown and to celebrate the very best of domestic flowers and foliage.
