Who’s Who in the Flowerhandlers Community?

As of January 2016 there were 1,300 Members of the Flowerhandlers Community.

When people join the Flowerhandlers Community we ask for their name, email and relationship to flowers. What? Relationship to flowers? Yep! We want to know how flowers are incorporated into your life so we can offer you the most appropriate information, messages, and updates.

Anyone and everyone can access the Flowerhandlers websites and join the Community. But our various products, services and opportunities are each designed to help individual groups of people with specific needs. We try to understand at least that much about you (your relationship to flowers) from the beginning of your membership so we can offer you the appropriate communication as time goes by.

Below is a description of the different “Relationships to Flowers” as perceived by Flowerhandlers and as it pertains to our body of work.
