LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- Business is in bloom for florists on Mother’s Day, one of their busiest days of the year, but increased flower prices remain.

Florists in Lincoln are feeling the effects of inflation and price increases.

Oak Creek Owner, John Christensen says the cost to ship products across the country has become considerably higher.

“Freight companies adjust by constantly surcharging additional money on top of the freight, so we just have to monitor those increases.”

Despite the increased demand for flowers and plants on holidays like Mother’s Day, Christensen says he doesn’t think the prices will come down anytime soon.

“Right now, I don’t see any leveling off. Obviously, prices just can’t continue to go up at the rate they are because people will not have the funds. The best economists probably don’t know the answer to when it will stop.”
