St Jordi’s Day is here… this means that the most radiant red roses can be seen at every corner you turn into while in the Catalonia region of Spain. Festive markets in Barcelona will be super busy with people milling around to get a red rose that would perfectly express undying affection for their loved ones. Florists will have a field day since this is by far their most lucrative date on the calendar. Even as the florists and buyers go about their business, one thing remains constant, the yearning for good quality roses.
St Jordi’s Day or St George’s Day is the Catalan equivalent of Valentine’s Day. According to Joris Bakker of Barendsen Flowers, this day sees an exceptional boost on sales of the red rose in the Barcelona and Catalonia regions. This is when their clients, who consist of florists, flower wholesalers and floral designers order extra red roses to be able to satisfy the huge demand.
