James Lowe, AIFD, CFD, your Accredited Floral Designer at Lowe’s Floral in Minot, ND gave a public presentation for the Minot Lions Club yesterday at their weekly meeting. James spoke about Valentine’s Day flower trends, Valentine’s Flower Deliveries and the global flower market.

It was surpising to note that 67% of the flowers consumed within the United States come from other countries and of those 61% are Colombian. The majority of fresh flowers bound for the United States arrive through Miami International Airport which has massive coolers to store them.

Lowe’s Floral held its Valentine’s Delivery prices in 2010 at their 2009 price levels. Affecting Valentine’s flower prices at some florist was the Devember 2009 flower freeze. It affected over 30% of the farms around Colombias Capitol city Bogota.
