The Majority of our flowers come from Holland as Holland controls the international flower industry. For an interesting insight into the murky world of international flower trading read the (Link) article by Peter Cluskey in the Irish Times 06/09/11. While we (Europe, Russia, North America) buy our flowers from the Dutch the flowers are grown all over the world. The Dutch also own most of the intellectual property of foreign growers in order to germinate, grow, cultivate and ship flowers around the Globe.
Probably not other than how long they have travelled or been on the flower stand. Our suppliers also supply the top florists in London, Paris even NYC and Galway. The only difference could be flowers in Paris take 3 hours to ship from Holland but just under 24 hours from Holland to Dublin. The real difference can be shelf time, we try to maintain a relatively small bouquet flower quantity to keep the flower turnover high. Flowers for weekly contract or for a specific event are ordered in specifically so that they arrive by ferry on Sunday night and are conditioned, arranged and delivered to a Hotel foyer for 8am Monday morning. We can get deliveries even night of the week.
