Flower power: Swiss florists hope to bloom after lockdown

qwFleuriot Fleurs probably won’t see a rush of customers when it opens on Monday for the first time since Switzerland went into lockdown. But manager Louise Barradi doesn’t have time to worry about a slow pickup just yet.

“We have been under water, we have had so many deliveries,” she said.

The Geneva-based florist has received about 200 orders a day from online customers during the month-old shutdown, with the best sellers being tulips and peonies. One client even spent CHF 1,500 to spruce up their home.

Online sales have proven to be a vital channel for many florists to offset losses from the closure of big clients like restaurants and hotels. Those businesses will remain closed Monday as Switzerland begins relaxing its coronavirus control measures.
