Maybe start with some similarities in the marketplace. What does a
single stem of a Gladiola cost in the supermarket. Here in Fremont (Glad
capital of CA) as I remember they are about $1.00 a stem, but I haven't
looked in a while.

So do you think a stem of iris is worth more? I would imagine a Florist
will at least double what you sell it to them for by the time it gets to
the customer.
