Our customers often ask us where we source our beautiful blooms. We are proud to tell them that we support local farmers and insist that this is how we gained our reputation of providing Toowoomba’s freshest flowers.
Being a Toowoomba florist is great as we have a wonderful climate and many quality flower growers in the area. We like to support as many local suppliers as we can. This means we get fresher flowers because they are less handled than imported blooms.
It’s also positive for the Toowoomba community as the money goes back into the city. In the future we will be trying to convince some of our growers to be featured in our blogs, giving a personal insight into the effort and commitment it takes to work in the flower growing industry.
Our customers will be happy to know that by buying even a simple little bunch of flowers, you are supporting a family and a way of life. I wish that I could convey what a difference it makes to the livelihoods of farmers when we support them. Here at Westridge Florist Toowoomba, we like to pay farmers a fair price and pass it on to our customers. It is very important to the integrity of our business that we provide the freshest, most affordable flowers possible.
Sometimes we are offered cheaper imported product but if better quality flowers are available then we always prefer to buy locally. Imported product can be of poor quality and the pesticides that are used in growing the flowers are unknown to us. Therefore we prefer to be certain we know exactly how our flowers are grown and what is used on them to ensure the best quality for our customers.
Westridge Florist Toowoomba is a local business that loves to support our community. We will always choose to encourage our local growers in and around Toowoomba rather than sacrifice quality and affordable prices.
