      Drop Shipping Flowers Online - Need UK Flower and Bouquet Dropshippers

      Hey everyone I am having some trouble finding a flower dropshipper. I want to start a site that lists the flowers and then use different drop shippers for the supply.

      Is this possible? Are there any good UK flower dropshippers that you would recommend?

      Thus far Ive had no luck on Google so I thought I would try this forum.

      Looking specifically for a UK flower drop shipper.

      Thanks!

      There are wholesalers and Nurseries how ship directly to end users. Maybe you could contact them and see what the possibilities are. Most of the flowers in the UK come from Holland to my understanding.

      Here are some examples:

      1. Triangle Nursery for Wholesale Flowers

      Wholesale Flowers & Florist Supplies UK | Triangle Nursery

      Triangle Nursery Ltd is a family owned wholesale flower company based in Thorpe le Soken, Essex. We specialise in the import and direct wholesale supply of fresh cut flowers, plants, and floral sundries throughout the UK and off shore islands.

      2. Sunflora

      Sunflora - Find a Supplier

      Because we only supply the wholesale markets we've teamed up with some of our customers who will sell our products direct to you.[/SIZE]

      3.AB Wholesale Flowers Ltd

      eflorist is a good flower company. Somehow they’ve managed to stay in the flower business since 1947.

      I have used them for same day service before and the flowers were perfect (or so says the customer )

      I think you will be hard pressed to get info from a florist.

      Try out Interflora.

      If you don't know any florists in the UK then you should make a plan, go out and introduce yourself

      You could partner with nurseries. If you can guarantee volume they may be interested in partnering with you.

      Some of the websites with the highest conversion rates (as high as 50%+ of visitors!) are online flower retailers. Review their websites and consider replicating their navigation funnels: Flowers, Roses, Gift Baskets, Same Day Florist | 1-800-FLOWERS.COM

      Hi, this is Mark from Triangle Nursery Ltd,

      Yes - we do offer a UK fresh flower Drop Shipping service. We work with customers who require flowers to be made up into a nice bouquet & boxed for despatch in mainland UK. Customers pay our wholesale price per item & advertise the products on their web sites. The retailer's margins are up to them, but a typical margin is between 35-40 % Gross profit.

      Example, if we charge 16.45 for a bouquet boxed & delivered + 20% VAT = 19.74. This product would be typically advertised on a retailer's web site for between 29.99 & 32.99 giving the retailer a profit of between 10.25 & 13.25 (inc VAT) for that bouquet.

      I very much hope this is of help. Please don't hesitate to contact us on 01255 861263 for more information about Drop Shipping Flowers in the UK.

      Kind Regards

      Mark Kenny
      Triangle Nursery Ltd.
