Rhi Tomholt created Flowers by Rhi in 2014 due to a frustrating lack of variety or jobs in the area. What started as a small 'daily bloom' business out of a garage in Traralgon has turned into a busy small business which employs 3 locals and is situated at 26 Shakespeare St, Traralgon. We have moved on from the 'daily blooms' and now instead offer you more variety with an abundance of beautiful seasonal flowers. You will often see Rhi in the shop with one or both of her young children in tow.

Can you tell me about the flowers, and the gifts?
We source our flowers from growers around Victoria, and always from Australia. The flowers are picked up by Rhi once a week in Melbourne, and another fresh delivery comes to our door later in the week. We keep a smaller amount of stock than a regular florist which means that sometimes we may sell out; but this also ensures a higher turnover of stock therefore fresher flowers for you. We pride ourselves on being different to the run-of-the-mill shops (no gerbera boxes in sight!) so you will see an array of different, unique blooms in our jars & in the shop. If you have a specific request for a certain type of flower, by all means ask and we will endeavour to source them for you.
Our gifts are all handmade by local artisans - sourced from Gippsland or Melbourne. We don't believe in mass-production; everything you see in store is unique & often one-of-a-kind. By supporting local makers we are keeping our local economy alive.
What happens if the recipient isn't home?
Their flowers will be left out of the weather as close to the front door as possible. A card filled out with delivery information will be left in their letterbox. You will receive a confirmation email upon delivery.
Do you do events?
We can cater for events, absolutely. Information on Cake & Hair Flowers can be found here. We also cater for funerals. A minimum of one weeks notice is required for all event orders. Please call us to arrange!
How do the bouquets come presented?
As the name suggests, our Posy Jars come presented in a prettied-up glass jar. We try and use recycled jars where possible and welcome donations of jars with open arms!
Bespoke Bouquets come wrapped in our signature paper with the stems in a gel water source - this gel is environmentally friendly and can be dug into your garden once you have popped your flowers into fresh water. Our larger Bespoke Bouquets ($110+) will come with a complimentary glass vase.
Can I pick up a bunch?
If you are after something specific you are welcome to pre-order it online and select 'pick up in store' when checking out. Otherwise, we're just like a normal florist (sort of!) in that we have a selection of pre-made bouquets & jars ready to go. We also have a unique 'posy bar' where all flowers on display are priced per stem - only have a couple of dollars? No problem! Want a bit of creative control and choose your own flowers? Too easy! Pop in store to see what we have available as it varies week to week.
What payments do you accept?
Credit Card payments are required at point of sale when ordering online. We accept Visa, Mastercard & Cash in store.
