How do I care for my flowers?
The best way to care for your flowers is to change the water they are placed in every two days; when you are doing this you should also be cutting the stem of the flower at the base on an angle so that it can absorb as much water as possible.
Another good tip is to store your flowers in a cool and dry place so that the outside weather (or indoor heater) doesn’t affect them!
Are there different flowers for different occasions?
Personally, we don’t like to adhere to any rules when sending flowers to people. We think it is always best to think of the person receiving them and try to give them a bunch they would enjoy – it’s the thought that counts after all.
In Floristry there are a lot of traditional opinions in regards to what flowers should be sent for different occasions, for example; pink for the birth of a girl, blue for the birth of a boy, white and green in the case of a loss, something bright for a birthday, etc. We're the new kids on the block, so goodbye to all that tradition, we say follow your gut!
Why did my flowers die?
There are many things that can contribute to the early death of your cut flowers; were they in direct sunlight, were they outdoors, where they above a heating vent, was the water changed regularly, were they unpacked and taken out of any foam or wet tissue, were the stems cut on an angle before they were placed in water?
When you are caring for your flowers these are all things that you need to consider or do to get the most life out of your blooms as possible, when cared for properly they will look beautiful and fresh longer!
Can women buy men flowers?
YES. Duh. Of course – f*ck toxic masculinity and buy that boy some damn blooms!
