It is the event which dedicates itself to beautifying everything it touches, enchanting young and old alike with dizzying smells and bringing the senses alive with vibrant colours and textures. Taking place from the 20th-26th November, NZ Flowers Week is a time to celebrate doted flora and fauna and the creativity it encompasses. Five of New Zealand’s top florists from around the country, gathered last Tuesday and Wednesday to create and curate arrangements from Bouquets, cloaks and wall arrangements to shopping trolleys full of the season’s finest.

The week will showcase locally grown flowers and highlight the importance of the industry’s contribution to culture and the economy. The week-long event will run from 20 to 26 November to encourage florists and New Zealander’s to support the industry. Flowers are universally adored by everyone, and are one of the most popular gifts to be exchanged. They instantly beautify their environment and uplift people’s moods. Internationally the floriculture industry is growing, and it is important that New Zealand establishes itself in the market.
