Article Body:
A florist is a person designing flower arrangements and selling them. The
florist takes care of flower arrangements, which is an art of making
bouquets, composition of ornamental grass, herbs, foliages and flowers
resulting in a beautiful design.

Nowadays there are numerous online florists in the internet. There are
disadvantages and advantages in going directly to a local florist than to
the online florist.

Spending a few dollars less getting a flower arrangement comparable to
the internet florist is possible. A local florist will give a more
personalized service. Whereas an Internet florist having an international
or national network will provide a service that is more reliable, and
placing the order is faster and easier.

A local florist will have a real inventory, which will be shown
physically to the customer along with their real prices. Since each
affiliated florist is owned and operated independently, the Internet
sites can only make a guess of available designs and their exact cost.

The Internet online florists charge a fee to process each order and
subsequently pass the order to a real florist to execute it.

The actual florist supplying and delivering the flowers gets only a
percentage of what is actually paid by the customer and the real value of
the order gets decreased in each stage of the processing. While a
customer pays USD 60 for the order, the value of the flowers delivered
will be worth somewhere around USD 45 only.
Of late, call centers are handling the order placed through an online
florist network. They lack real knowledge about flowers and their
arrangements. Their information is confined to few pictures and scant
details. A call direct to the real florist eliminates the usual
occurrences of misunderstandings and mistakes. Every detail of the
requirement can be discussed to the utmost satisfaction. For more info

Florists are persons working with flowers, at a retail level generally.
The flower-only shops include online stores, telephone orders, sales, and
a florist shop. Garden supply stores and supermarkets are also
functioning as a retail florist. Among their large product range, flowers
are also included now.

Since 1998, there is a decline of more than twenty percent in
independently owned traditional flower shops or florists in North America
due to the advent of the World Wide Web and Internet marketing. Floral
wire services and online flower delivery ordering are replacing the
mortar and brick retail arrangements of a florist.

A large collection of flowers is stocked in a florist shop. They usually
spill out in to street or a display will be made using large plate glass
windows. To keep the flowers fresh, they will be kept in water using
plastic bulbs, containers and sleeves.

Knowledge in complicated arrangements of flowers along with know-how on
forming bouquets and wreaths is very important for a florist. Besides
stocking the different flowers available in the season locally, florists
also import blossoms from various cities and towns of the globe. The most
common varieties stocked by florist include lilies, irises, tulips and
roses.
