Flowers for Funerals

Here at Hanging Basket Florist we have created many floral funeral tributes in our 30 plus years of business. Much has changed in that time, most notably online ordering. While florist websites can be very convenient for ordering gifts, sometimes you need the advice of a professional florist.

Unlike many online florists, Hanging Basket Florist is a real brick-and-mortar flower shop, with experienced staff on hand, actual florists – not just call centre operators. Our qualified florists can advise you on what the most appropriate flower arrangement is for a funeral or to send to the home for a sympathy gift.

Rockingham Hospital Florist

Hanging Basket Florist have a wonderful collection of flowers and gifts for delivery to Rockingham General Hospital.

Not sure what to send? While a lot of our customers love the convenience of online shopping,  many still like the personal touch of chatting to us on the phone, and we can suggest a suitable floral gift to send to Rockingham Hospital.

While many customers prefer to send bouquets we recommend a box or vase arrangement to make life much easier for the lovely hospital staff. With the flowers already arranged in a box or vase, the Rockingham General Hospital staff do not have to fuss with putting the flowers in water, and vases may be in short supply at the hospital.

Choose a Real Florist!

To get the best value and service, be sure to choose a real local florist like Hanging Basket Florist in Rockingham WA.

With e-commerce now an everyday reality there are many different companies competing for your attention online. Unfortunately there are some companies out there who are using deceptive means to get your money.

Typically when you search for Rockingham Florist on Google, the top three result are ads. More often than not these ads are paid for by companies with big marketing budgets and not your local florist. These companies have created business names to seem like they are a real florist, using common womens names with the word florist (eg Sally’s Florist) to try to deceive the customer into believing they are dealing with a real local florist. However the reality is that they are an Eastern States based business with a call centre and websites, and not a stem of flowers to be seen. These companies then send on your order on to the real local florist, minus a commission.

When a customer buys flowers in this way, the profits go to a large corporation over East, taking the money out of the local area. As a real local business, we employ local Rockingham people and spend our money in the Rockingham area. Some people like to be ethical consumers who want to support their local community, others couldn’t care less, but in any case more often than not you will get a better deal by going direct to your local florist. In addition to better prices the local florist can offer helpful advice and make suggestions on what flowers are best at the moment and offer custom-designed arrangements and bouquets. The customer is not limited to ordering from pictures on the internet.

Given the lengths that these middlemen – or order gatherers as they are known in the floral industry – go to to give the impression that they are real flower shops, how is a customer to know the difference?

A real local florist should:

Have a local address. If there is no address on the website or if you see the business listing on Google Maps and it is a house or the middle of a park, chances are it is a bogus listing.

Have a local phone number. Small businesses with only one outlet do not have 1300 phone numbers.

Support the businesses that support your community and buy local.

 

Our Valentines Day Window

Here is a snapshot of our Valentine’s Day window. The big teddy bear is, unfortunately, the last of his kind – the wholesalers are no longer importing this product which has always been a favourite with our local customers. Also seen in the window display are artificial roses – the real roses are in the cooler keeping fresh – and some of our gift packs featuring teddy bears, chocolates, balloons and roses, wrapped ready to go.
We will be open 7 days a week in the lead up to Valentine’s Day, including the upcoming Australia Day holiday on Monday. This gives everyone plenty of opportunity to get their Valentine’s Day orders in.

Budget Friendly Valentine’s Gifts

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to break the bank – we have a lot of options other than big, long stem dozen rose bouquets.
We have short stem roses – while they are as lovely as the long stem, they are cheaper and make a smaller bouquet due to the stem length. In a colourful glass vase this rose posy makes a lovely, sweet Valentine’s Day gift. We can also do a cute Bud Vase – two roses and all the trimmings in a vase.

Of course, you can always add to these budget conscious romantic gifts by adding a balloon, chocolates or a teddy to your order for delivery in the Rockingham, Kwinana, Baldivis, Wellard area of WA.

Valentine’s Day

With Christmas just gone, we florists are now busy preparing for our next big day – Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is the busiest day of the year. We will have approximately 5,000 stems of roses coming in, each one one will need to be prepared for sale – thorns and excess foliage removed, stems re-cut and into fresh water with cut flower preservative. And then, of course, they will be made into bouquets – half-dozens, dozens and even two- or three dozens, as well as wrapped or gift boxed as single roses.

Of course, it’s not just roses – along with teddy bears, locally made chocolates, and balloons many other flowers remain favourites. One of our most popular bouquets is our Rose & Lily Bouquet – beautiful Oriental Lilliums and Roses together in an impressive bouquet with tropical foliage.

Due to the high labour costs of producing so many roses for just one day of the year, the wholesale price for roses increases by at least %50. While we pride ourselves on having the best price on roses in Rockingham and Kwinana (possibly the whole of Perth!) it is  impossible for us to absorb such a hefty increase. Our retail price on roses for Valentines Day usually increases by around %25, which brings our 12 Red Roses and Vase deal to $135, which we believe is still a fantastic deal compared to other florists.

While we always have lots of roses made ready to go on the day, to secure a place on our limited delivery runs for Valentine’s Day it is necessary to order in well advance. And the earlier the better – all orders for roses placed with Hanging Basket Florist in January are at the normal price – we don’t increase our prices until the 1st of February. So beat the Valentine’s Day price rise and order your roses in January.
