Tulips and some special flowers are imported from the Netherlands.

When there is a significant mismatch between those supply and demand, prices can fluctuate widely, from 'rock bottom' prices that do not cover production costs to 'sky high' prices that make very generous profit margins. In addition to price, the market values highly product freshness, reliability of supply, speed of delivery, and range products available (including colour variations).
