Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.

FRESH FLOWER CARE: WATER WISELY

  • It is important to keep fresh flowers in water at all times as they continue to "drink" water even after they are cut. Exposure to air — even for a brief time — may cause the water-absorbing cells in the stem to shrivel and seal over. This can dramatically shorten the life of your floral bouquet.
  • Every day, add fresh, room temperature water.
  • Conditioning water with "home remedies" such as aspirin, bleach, mouthwash or lemon-lime soda in lieu of flower food is not beneficial and may even shorten the longevity of your flowers. Most wilted flowers can be revived by submerging the entire stem up to the flower head in warm water for 10 minutes.

FRESH FLOWER CARE: CUT STEMS AT AN ANGLE

  • Every few days, re-cut fresh flower stems diagonally under running water (ideally with a knife rather than scissors). Trimming flower stems at an angle prevents them from sitting flat on the bottom of the vase, which can block water uptake.
  • A common myth suggests cutting the stem vertically to allow more water absorption. No scientific proof supports this myth. In fact, cutting stems vertically destroys the cell structure, causing bacteria growth and hindering water absorption.

FRESH FLOWER CARE: PRUNE DAILY

  • Remove any leaves that may be submerged in the water in your vase. These will rot and create bacteria, which can shorten the life of your floral bouquet.
  • Some flowers will bloom quickly, others slowly. Over time, prune away dead blossoms, as this will encourage other blooms to open. As flowers wither, you may want to remove them from the floral bouquet and move the remaining blooms to a smaller vase.

FRESH FLOWER CARE: AVOID HEAT & DRAFTS

  • Display your flowers in a place protected from heat-generating appliances, direct sunlight and drafts such as fans. High temperatures and sunlight cause flowers to mature at a faster rate, which can shorten the lifespan of your bouquet.
  • Fresh flowers ship in bud stage.

FRESH FLOWER CARE: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • For those with allergies or sensitivities to flower fragrance, the best non-fragrant options are tropical flowers such as orchids, anthurium, birds of paradise or other tropical varieties. Oriental lilies, particularly Stargazer lilies, are strongly fragranced and should be avoided. 
  • Varieties that are particularly toxic to animals include lilies, palms, tulip bulbs, narcissus bulbs, azaleas, rhododendrons, cyclamens, kalanchoes, amaryllises, chrysanthemums, English ivy and peace lilies.

PLANT CARE: WATER WISELY

  • Improper watering is the most common reason why indoor plants wilt and die. So be sure to carefully follow the watering instructions provided for each specific plant.
  • Surprisingly, overwatering (rather than under-watering) is most often the culprit of poor plant health. What makes things complicated is that some signs of overwatering — wilting, yellowing, curling leaves — look exactly like the symptoms of under-watering. Once again, be sure to consult the care instructions for your specific plant.
  • Pick a regular day of the week to check the soil moisture of your house plants and make it part of your routine.
  • Designate one household member to be responsible for watering the house plants. When multiple family members add water, it can easily lead to overwatering.
  • Tap water contains many chemical additives designed to keep humans healthy, but not necessarily plants. Serious indoor gardeners often use distilled water to help their house plants flourish to the fullest.

PLANT CARE: THE FINE POINTS OF FERTILIZING

  • When your plants are delivered fresh , they are potted in nutrient-rich soil to promote the health and growth of the specific plant variety. It's best not to add any fertilizer for the first six months.
  • As with watering, over-fertilizing your plants often causes more harm than good. Be sure to carefully follow the fertilizing instructions provided for each specific plant.
  • When leaves begin to turn yellow, brown or simply pale, it might be time to fertilize.
  • Water soluble fertilizers recommended. Please follow the fertilizer care and handling recommendations from the manufacturer.

PLANT CARE: TIPS & TRICKS

  • To keep plants shapely, give their pots a quarter turn once a week, as they will grow in the direction of the light source.
  • Locate all house plants away from the temperature extremes created by heating ducts, air conditioning vents or fans (including ceiling fans).
  • Wipe away dust from plant leaves with a damp cloth (except for hairy-leaved plants like African Violets , which should be dry-dusted using a feather duster or canned air duster).
  • Prune dead leaves and wayward stems for a healthy and curvaceous plant.

PLANT CARE: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

  • Varieties that are particularly toxic to animals include lilies, palms, tulip bulbs, narcissus bulbs, azaleas, rhododendrons, cyclamens, kalanchoes, amaryllises, chrysanthemums, English ivy and peace lilies.
