The researcher conducted a survey in selected areas in Lipa City and Batangas City where flower shops are situated. All florist that the researcher have questioned, indicated that their business is only owned by one. All have a Sole Proprietorship type of business.

After further asking, the researcher found out that it is better to have that type of business to lessen the liability to government, like taxes. As to the area of business, mostly our situated not along the public market but to other commercial area where people can see them easily. In Lipa City, only few shops are in the public market, but many are located in Mataas na Lupa near Robinsons. In Batangas City, most flower shops are seen on Plaza Mabini near Saint Bridget’s College. The result of the survey indicates that 7 out of 30 flower shops are located in public market, 22 are on other commercial area and only 1 was seen on a residential area. Shops are near each other therefore resulting to a tight competitive environment.

The survey shows that most shops have only 1 or 2 workers/florist on it. 11 shops have 1 worker only as well as 2 workers. 6 shops have 3 workers and 4 shops have 4 workers. Meaning, 36. 7% prefer lower number of workers. This shows that owners are decreasing the numbers of workers to decrease the expense monthly. Few shops exist in a long time like above 20 years. 43. 3 % of surveyed shops are existing in 1-5 years already. They weren’t be existing in that long time if the business is always incurring loses, therefore despite the dormant and peak seasons, they still have a return on their capital . Table2.

All shops have the Malaysian Mums available. These are the flowers that are cheap but still possess beauty if arrange in a nice manner. These are mostly use for funeral purposes which are mostly demanded in a normal day. Roses and Angel’s breath are also available on all shops.

Only 7 shops have available birds of paradise, 18 shops have anthurium, 11 shops have Star gazer, and only 3 shops have Tulips in them. These flowers are not only the flowers being sold. They are only the flowers being offered on a typical flower shops that the researcher have interviewed. Clearly stated in the graph G-4 and G-5 that the business is highly profitable during peak seasons like Valentine’s Day, All Souls Day, Mothers’ Day and any month when there is a public occasion. Most flower shops are having a profit of 30000 – 49999 pesos in a day during those occasions. Unlike during a normal day 1000 – 1999 pesos only is the amount of their sales.

After further questioning, the researcher found out that there are days that a shop has no sales at all during the few-demand-of-flowers seasons. Few demand seasons include months of June, July, August and September. Exuberant flower arrangements enliven all the meaningful celebration in our annual calendar. Therefore in those seasons flowers are greatly in demand resulting to very high sales on all flower shop business. There are shops which have sales up to 100000 pesos, the reason why more and more people are attracted to engage on this kind of business. Table3.

For the purpose of this research, the researcher decided to divide it to problems relating to peak seasons and dormant seasons. During dormant seasons, the mean for the problem of dried flowers is 2. 80. It means that they are always experiencing this problem during dormant season but during peak the mean is only 1. 3 meaning most or almost all flower shops do not encounter this kind of situation. The problem with Pest, having the same mean of 1. 87 during dormant and peak season is sometimes experience in whatever season it may be. Technologies are advancing therefore they have found a way to eliminate pests in their flowers. There are also days when the business have a few customers.

This is true during dormant season having a mean of 3. 00. Dormant seasons are days when there is only little demand on a certain products, therefore on those days few people are going to flower shops to buy flowers. But at peak seasons, many consumers are craving for flowers resulting to a mean of 1, meaning the problem of “few customers” is never experience during peak season. . Taxes are part of a business. Therefore businessman and woman consider this as one of the major problems of an entrepreneur. Having a mean of 3. 00 in the survey for both seasons, it is therefore an all-year problem of these businesses as well as too many competitors.

Delayed deliveries of ordered flowers, unpaid balances of customers, lack of necessary equipment and natural calamities are sometimes experience by the shops in whatever season it may be. Table4.

It is a natural beauty and art. Flowers have been used for centuries as decoration, personal adornment, or for religious significance.

Ancient Egyptians used flowers to honor their many gods and goddesses. Flowers were arranged in low bowls in an orderly, repetitious pattern-flower, bud, foliage, and so on. Special spouted vases were also used to hold flowers. Lotus flowers, also called water lilies, were Egyptian favorites. They came to symbolize sacredness and were associated with Isis, the Egyptian nature goddess. Flowers were sometimes used as decorations for the body, collar, and hair. Flowers were fashioned into elaborate wreaths and garlands by the ancient Greeks. The best wreath makers were often commissioned by wealthy Greeks to make wreaths for gifts, awards, or decoration.

Chaplets, special wreaths for the head, were especially popular. Cornucopia, a horn-shaped container still used today, was filled with arrangements of flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Flowers arranged into wreaths and garlands were also popular in ancient Rome and well through to the Middle Ages. The Victorian era saw great developments in the art of floral design. There was enormous enthusiasm for flowers, plants, and gardens; the most cultured young ladies were often schooled in the art of flower arrangement. Rules were first established regarding function and design. Magazines and books about floral arrangement were also published during this time.

Proper Victorian ladies often had fresh nosegays, or tussie-mussies, a hand-held arrangement of tightly knotted flowers, for sentimental reasons, if not to freshen the air. Posy holders, fancy carriers for these small floral arrangements, came into fashion. Some were made of ivory, glass, or mother-of-pearl, and were elaborately decorated with jewels or etchings. Flowers were also made into small arrangements and tucked into a lady’s decol-letage inside aptly named containers, bosom bottles. Ikebana, the Japanese art of floral arrangement since the sixth century, has been a principal influence on formal flower arrangement design. Its popularity still continues today.

In the 1950s, free-form expression developed, incorporating pieces of driftwood and figurines within arrangements of flowers and live plants. Floral traditions of the past still have an impact on us today. It is still fashionable to mark special occasions with flowers, be it an anniversary, wedding, or birthday. People continue to use flowers to commemorate the dead. Today’s floral arrangements reflect current styles, trends, and tastes. The best floral designers will follow the developing fashions and creatively adapt them to their arrangements. Business Through generation people have found a way to make this a source of livelihood. One does not have to be an artist to enjoy flowers (Tozer, 2009). Flower arrangements are in demand on certain seasons.

The usual sources for flowers include florists shops, supermarket, corner grocery stores, farmers’ markets, roadside stands, greenhouses, mail-order catalogues, and your own or friend’s garden. Wholesale florists sell bulk flowers and related supplies to professionals in the trade. Floristry can involve the cultivation of flowers as well as their arrangement, and to the business of selling them. Much of the raw material supplied for the floristry trade comes from the cut flower industry. Florist shops, along with online stores are the main flower-only outlets, but supermarkets, garden supply stores and filling stations also sell flowers. The floristry business has a significant market in the corporate and social event world, as flowers play a large part in the decor of special events and meetings.

Centerpieces, entryways, reception tables, bridal bouquets, wedding chuppahs and stage sets are only a few examples of how flowers are used in the business and social event settings. Flower Shops are wide-spreading in the Philippines. They can be seen along the public market and other commercial areas.

Large importers of flowers have set-up shop here as this has simply become the recognized epicenter of flowers in Metro Manila.
