Flower Care

Flower Care

We are dedicated to purchasing fresh high quality flowers. Fresh cut flowers are living entities that can be encouraged to last longer under the right conditions.  The fresh flowers that we select are carefully cared for in our shop through trimming, fresh water and being kept at their ideal temperature in our
cool room.

The following tips will help make your flowers last longer.
Tip #1:
• Replenish the water frequently. Change the water entirely every 2-3 days.
Tip #2:
• Trim at least a half inch of stem off your flowers before you put them in a vase and each time you change the water.
Tip #3:
• Keep your flowers away from heat and bright light.
Tip #4:
• Avoid sitting your flowers beside ripening fruit or vegetables, especially bananas and apples.
Tip #5:
• After you throw out your last arrangement, be sure to wash the vase/container very thoroughly in hot soapy water, your dishwasher or with bleach.
Tip #6:
• Use “flower food” for most flowers. You can make your own flower food by adding about 1 teaspoon of sugar, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and a 1 teaspoon of bleach to your vase before adding about a quart of warm tap water. It is worth noting that there are a few flowers that actually do NOT like flower food in the vase. Some of these are: zinnias, sunflowers and gladiolus.
Tip #7:
• Use sharp scissors when cutting.
