Fresh Cut Flowers Wholesale @ Far East Flora, Thomson Road

Like my Facebook page and follow me @springtomorrow on Instagram and Twitter for the latest updates!

After our walk at MacRitchie Reservoir, we headed towards the direction of the row of nurseries (flowers & plants) along Thomson Road. I’ve been wanting to bring my husband there for quite some time to check out where cheap flowers can be bought in Singapore.

At Far East Flora, you will see a large array of imported fresh cut flowers at wholesale prices. Though they are only sold in bundles (no single stalk purchase), their prices are only a fraction of what you’d pay for a bouquet from the standard florist.

The good thing about buying flowers here is that you get to mix and match different species and colours without breaking the bank. And the best thing? Keep yourself chilled at <10 deg C as the flowers are kept fresh in a cold room which is like a walk-in fridge. Perfect venue to escape the heat. Admission is free!

The husband was truly impressed because the last bouquet of roses he got me (a long long time ago!), it was like S$99 from some online florist with not-so-great packing anyway but you can get the same at less than $12 here. Just pop outside the cold room to grab the necessary decorative wrappers to make it a giftable bunch. Or buy a vase instead which is a much more practical option. So dear husband, does that mean I’d get more flowers from now on? =p

Flowers not only give life and colour to the home but also help to lift up our spirits for some reasons. I guess that’s just the power of nature.

Smile everyone because tomorrow will always be spring =)

    Hi!do you remember how much does the blooming roses at far east flora cost?

    • Geri Tan says:

      Hello Michael, I think the price range for roses was from $10.00 onwards for a bunch, depending on the origin but that was 2013’s price so it’s best you call them up to find out. Cheers.

    • Geri Tan says:

      Hi Michael, I was there again over the weekend. Spotted 3 types of roses (different origins) at $8, $10 and $16.80 per dozen. Hope this helps. Cheers.

    how do i get there? what bouquet combination do you have for proposal?

    • Geri Tan says:

      Hi Kevin, you can alight at the nearest MRT Station, Caldecott (Circle Line) and take a 5-min walk to Far East Flora. Alternatively, there are many buses that stop along Thomson Road, right in front of the nurseries. You can just google for directions. Please refer to their website for more information on available bouquets or give them a call at the number provided in my blog post. Cheers and good luck!

    Hi, may I know what are the opening hours?

  5. Natalie says:

    Roughly how many flowers are there in a bundle?

    • Geri Tan says:

      Hi Natalie, it depends on the type of flowers you’re getting and even for each type, there can be different origins, packaging and prices so it’s best that you check out the nursery yourself. Cheers.

    Hi, do they take delivery? 🙂

    • Geri Tan says:

      Hi, for these wholesale fresh flowers, I don’t think there’s delivery unless you’re ordering in bulk? You might just want to give them a call to find out more. Cheers.

  7. Jennifer says:

    Hi may i ask if the shop provides service for arranging a bouquet ? Thank you! 🙂

    • Geri Tan says:

      Hi Jennifer, yes they do but that would definitely not be under wholesale prices. You can check out their website for their retail section and pick your bouquet from the choices available. Cheers.

    I need to make 3 flower bouquets, and would like to use Hydrangea and Yang Peony. May I know they sell these?

  9. Sarj says:

    I also love buying from Far East Flora! They always deliver good quality bouquet on scheduled time.

  10. Madhu says:

    Hello, I would like to now if the prices of the flowers now are still around that range of price in 2013?

    • Geri Tan says:

      Depends on the origin of the flowers esp. that of carnations and roses that come in wide price range. May have slight increase for certain breeds but prices are still acceptable in general.
