Retail at Plantpeddler

What is the meaning of "retail"? Retail has many insides and outs. When we first think of retail its fresh flowers. Flowers are a great way to express your feelings, like if someone you know is feeling down or just had a baby or is suffering the loss of a family member or a Christmas centerpiece for the table. People send flowers for many reasons. We have a wide selection of flowers and styles. Styles can be easily explained as Elegant, Hi-Style, Traditional and Simple. These arrangements can consist of Roses, Carnations, Gladiolus, Birds of Paradise, Daisies, Alstroemeria, Snapdragons, Liatris (which is native to Iowa), Babies Breath, Caspia and Wax Flower and an assortment of greens. We also carry a nice selection of green and blooming plants.
