Valentines day is fast approaching and it’s a wonderful chance to celebrate love and show people just how much they mean to you.
It’s also a fantastic opportunity to share the love by supporting your local farmers and small businesses.
It’s been heartening to see how individuals and businesses here in Toowoomba have supported charities in their drive to help drought affected farmers. However, as well as making donations, you can help to support them even further with your buying choices.
Valentines day is such a great opportunity to support local farmers and small business in your local community.
Toowoomba is known as the garden city and we have a great network of local growers. Here at Westridge Florist, located at 300 West Street, Toowoomba, we try to support our local farmers whenever we can. As much as possible, we source our flowers from local growers who have been working tirelessly in difficult conditions to produce the volume of flowers that’s required for Valentine’s Day.
This year, we’ll be collecting incredible local roses straight from the farm gates of local growers to be arranged and delivered to your loved one on Valentine’s Day. We’re also stocking up on a variety of other flower types, so there will be plenty of options if you’d like something less traditional.
Valentine’s Day is the biggest day of the year for florists, and here at Westridge Florist, we’re no exception.
However, it can be a challenge when we’re faced with the budget arrangements in chain stores and the many pop-up stalls that seem to materialise out of nowhere, selling cheap bouquets made from flowers of dubious quality that are sourced far from the local community.
For these reasons, we’re calling on the local community to support local florists and local farmers by opting for quality and value this Valentine’s Day. As well as helping to keep our region prosperous, you are also guaranteed a hand crafted arrangement using fresher, longer lasting flowers. You’ll also get great service from real florists who are passionate about what they do and love to help you.
At Westridge Florist here in Toowoomba, we also offer our very own delivery service so you can be assured that your loved one will receive their Valentine’s Day promptly and at the right time.
