Fresh Flower Rookie!    (Posted Tue, May 8 '12 at 04:33 UTC)

I absolutely LOVE flowers! But I don't know very much about them! I'm working towards getting into nursing school but I want to do something on the side. We have a small local farmers market in my home town. I want to sell fresh flowers by the stem. Does anybody have any helpful advice for me? How do I keep them alive and looking fresh from the time I pick them up from the wholesale store until I leave the farmers market at night? Is there anything really important I need to know? I would really appreciate your help! Thank you!!

First make sure the market doesn't require you to grow what you sell. They all do around here.

Grandma's Garden, naturally raised veggies, herbs and cut flowers.

They do not require the flowers to be homegrown at this farmers market.
