More than 1,500 flowers have been sold at the flower market in Perth as the city continues to experience an extraordinary shortage of fresh flowers.
The annual Flower Fair in Perth, which has been held in the city since 1887, has now sold more than 3,500 of the city’s flower varieties, according to The Royal Botanic Gardens.
A lot of them are in pretty good condition, said owner Jennifer McInnes, who has been selling flowers since the Victorian boom years of the late 1960s.
“There are a lot of really beautiful varieties and they’re all in really good condition,” she said.
“I’m really happy with the quality.”
Mr McInnis has sold more varieties than any other owner in the flower fair.
He said it was important to get a lot more people to come to the flower markets because they are very popular.
“It’s really important that people come out and see the variety and try them on,” he said.
