Robertson Flower Farm
Robertson Flower Farm’s Katrin Rosse said the week in the lead up to Mother's Day was always a hectic time.
“Throughout the season we are doing weekly plantings to keep the constant supply to flower markets but as Mother's Day orders are much bigger, we have planted and picked even more,” she said.
Heading towards the winter, Katrin said Queensland flower farmers had a lot more work on their hands.
“When the weather cools down it cuts off the supply to the market from of the flower farms down south,” she said.
“Here, we are still able to produce sunflowers and our soft winters make it the perfect place to grow premium quality lilies and gladioli.”
Robertson Flower Farm will celebrate Mother's day with a huge market stall at their farm gate this weekend.
“It's definitely one of the highlights of the season and we encourage people to get their flowers locally and support farmers.”
Staff at the Endeavour Foundation have been kept busy with their annual chrysanthemums now ready for Mum.
Endeavour Foundation flowers cost $12 a bunch and are now available at the site on Fitzgerald Street, with a huge sale to be held tomorrow.
They will also be sold from various businesses throughout the region.
