Today I went down to visit Southern Floral. The company has been in business since 1927 and supplies many of the florists and other flower resellers in the area.
Although this is a wholesale business, if you stop while they are not in the midst of a holiday rush you can purchase floral supplies, crafting items, live flowers and misc decorating items from them. If you are reselling them you need a sales tax id number and an agriculture permit.
Flowers are kept freshest between 38-40’F, except tropicals which are kept at 48’F
Succulents are becoming more popular in arrangements, especially in weddings
