Seventy percent of floral industry members responding to a Society of American Florists survey reported an increase in Mother’s Day sales — with many saying they could have sold even more flowers if they’d been able to source additional product or bring in more staff. “I don’t know if I could have planned for this year,” wrote one Arizona retailer. “It hit me like a tsunami.”
