Flowers at the grocery store are not cheap.
They cost anywhere from $4 to $6 per flower, according to a study released in March by the Canadian Council of Flower Growers.
But a new study suggests that if you save money at the store, you can save up to 20 per cent of your grocery bill on flowers.
That’s because, according the researchers, the majority of flowers sold at the big-box stores are “slightly older” than the flowers sold by farmers.
They’re often “slighter” and smaller, which makes them less attractive to the average consumer.
They also tend to be less expensive than the cheaper, more traditional varieties, which have been bred to be fresher and more flavorful.
The researchers, from the University of Ottawa, analyzed the sales of over 2,000 flower brands at about 5,000 grocery stores across Canada from 2006 to 2012.
The results show that “very old” flowers are typically priced around $4.50, while younger, more recent flowers are priced around the $5 mark.
The authors say this is because of the “slimy and cheap” plants used to make up these older varieties.
It’s not just older flowers that are in short supply, either.
According to the study, “a small number of varieties were found to be under-priced in 2012, and a small number were over-priced,” with prices averaging between $6 and $12 per plant.
As well, the study found that “many growers are also unable to obtain their desired varieties.”
What to do if you’re shopping online?
It all depends on the retailer.
If you’re looking for an older flower, there are a few different options to consider.
For starters, you might want to look for a “limited edition” flower or one that has been re-sown in the greenhouse rather than bought from the farmer.
And if you want to avoid a costly trip to the store (as is often the case with flowers), you could try buying a flower online at a retailer that sells a wide variety of flowers.
It’s important to note, however, that the flowers are generally older than the ones you’re buying, so they won’t be as fresh and as delicious as fresh ones from a farmer.
If you’re interested in buying a plant, you’ll need to be willing to pay more for it.
If your budget is tight, a flower nursery or flower store may be the way to go.
You can also check the price tags at the flower shop to see what the seller is charging.
While online shoppers may not be able to shop at all, the research suggests that you can get a little more bang for your buck by shopping at a local flower shop, where the flowers and prices are generally much cheaper.
