July through September is the slower period for the floral business. Colorful summer flowers such as gladiolas and Gerber daisies are less expensive this time of year. Chrysanthemums, snapdragons, carnations and alstroemeria are cheaper than in any other time during the year.
ProFlowers, the cheapest service, would deliver the flowers for a total of $68.96. Note that ProFlowers, unlike its competitors, sends boxed flowers directly from growers. If you want the initial "wow" factor of flowers presented in a vase, that's not what you get here.
The Best Method of Transportation for Fresh Flowers
Shipping the Flowers Yourself Select an international shipper to use. Purchase the flowers that you want to send. Wrap the bottoms of the flowers with wet paper towels. Dip the ends of the flowers in water. Wrap the ends of the flowers with a plastic bag. Secure the flowers to a box with zip ties. Take the flowers to the closest shipping center.
