Imported, exotic and organic varieties are used to make a bouquet

‘When you want to say something, say it with flowers,’ goes an adage.

“Why not with vegetables?” asks this florist!

Pushing behind the traditional flower bouquets and fruit baskets, ‘vegetable bouquet’ seems to be the in-thing this New Year, as it is catching the attention of one and all.

The concept, which is already a hit in Hyderabad, has been slightly adapted and introduced in Tirupati by Blue Petals, a leading florist.

Brand ‘Fresco’

The ingredients are not just vegetables that we usually come across in the local market, but exotic varieties specifically imported from the U.S. and Holland, and sold under the brand ‘Fresco’.

Vegetables such as broccoli, lettuce, capsicum (in three colours), cucumber, brinjal, chilli, bottle gourd, yellow zucchini and onion leaves are used in this aesthetically-decorated bouquet.

Price range

“These vegetables are grown in organic conditions and hence are free of chemical residue,” says Blue Petals founder C.B.V. Saikumar Reddy.

The bouquets are available in the price range of ₹200 to ₹2,000.

This ‘new arrival’ does not, however, shut the door on regular bouquets, as exotic flowers such as Dutch roses, Mokara orchids, Kolkata chrysanthemum, Chandni, double gladioli and carnation are still in high demand for the New Year season.
