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
Gerberas of different colours at just $3.50 per bundle of 10 stalks.
Familiar flowers that we often see in the markets – assortment of chrysanthemums and the like – that are normally used for Chinese religious praying or occasions.
Blooming roses of various shades and colours. Pretty pretty!
If you’re thinking of getting carnations for Mothers’ Day or Teachers’ Day, then you’ll be spoilt for choice here.
And here’s what my husband got me:
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 =)
