flower shop - florist Florists usually sell fresh flowers, flower arrangements, and ornamental plants.  Many years ago, florists grew their own flowers for market, often in gardens and greenhouses near their flower shops.  During the twentieth century, modern communication and transportation systems enabled the development of flower delivery networks.  These florist networks facilitated the delivery of beautiful fresh flowers and perishable gifts to recipients anywhere, at any time of the year.

More recently, with the development of the Internet and next-day air delivery services, online florists have become a convenient way to send flowers anywhere in the world from flower growers located in warm and sunny climates.  Flower delivery networks and independent florists have created stores on the World Wide Web where visitors can view online pictures of flower bouquets and floral arrangements.  Customers can order flowers online quickly and conveniently instead of ordering flowers by phone or buying them at a traditional, local flower shop.
