International Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognised for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political.
For the United Nations, International Women’s Day has been observed on 8 March since 1975 and so this year the day will follow just 2 days after UK Mother’s Day which, with Easter falling early, comes only 3 weeks after Valentine’s Day.
The effect that International Women’s Day will have on UK Mother’s Day prices, being only 2 days apart, is as always about supply and demand. International Women’s Day has a huge market in Eastern Europe with a demand to match. The production from growers cannot match the demand from Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day in such a short space of time because flowers need time to grow. As a result of this and low volumes in the auctions, chances are the prices will be high.
There are certain flowers that are very popular for International Women’s Day, such as Chrysanthemums, Lilies and Roses, so you can be certain that these will be very expensive this Mother’s Day.
Whilst it is difficult for us to predict prices at anytime of the year it will be particularly hard during this period but rest assured we will endeavour to buy at the best price but without compromising on our usual standards and quality. However, it is worth remembering that prices for all flowers could be high at this time so do bear this in mind when pricing for any work you have planned.
