Benefits of shopping with Us

Joining the Flower Collective provides an opportunity to:

  • Streamline your buying process by having access to multiple flower farms with one point of sale and one delivery fee

  • Access a greater volume of locally grown products than individual farms can offer on their own

  • Shop from our complete year-round catalogue of specialty cut flowers and foliage

  • Take your time while shopping.  Our e-commerce platform reserves items added to your cart for one hour, giving you plenty of time to browse. 

  • Build community and connection.  We are stronger together, and our buyers will get to attend professional development and provide direct input to our growers about their ingredient wishlist.
