It is to your advantage to place your order in advance. Select the flowers you love and set the delivery date in advance to ensure you can get your mother’s special flowers. During Mother’s Day, we receive a high volume of flower orders.

When you place an order too late and too close to Mother’s Day, you risk having to select a different product or making flower substitutions. This is due to flower supplies running low with many orders to fill. Waiting upon supply trucks after our supplies have dwindled can also be unpredictable.

Secure your flowers and order delivery date by skipping the stress and ordering in advance.

Thanksgiving (USA)

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

Now that you have your lovely flowers for the holiday season, you would like to preserve their beauty for as long as possible. We have provided some fresh flower care tips to help. If you are giving flowers to friends or family, feel free to share this page with them so that they will be able to care for their flowers soon after their delivery.

First things first
Most flowers are delivered with a plastic covering. Remove all plastic to all your flowers to breathe. Next, if your flowers are already in a vase or you have just placed them in a vase, refill the vase with fresh water. Your flowers will love the hydration.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
It is best to avoid placing your flower in areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These can cause wilting or dry out your flowers. Instead, place your flowers somewhere where they will be in cooler and more controlled conditions.

It is always good to prevent the possibility of ethylene gas reducing the life of your flowers. This can often come from placing flowers near fruit or cigarette smoke.

Maintaining your flower’s beautiful presentation
As your beautiful flowers are on display, check up on them and tend to them periodically over a series of days.

  • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with fresh water to provide them with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, it is good to also provide them with hydration. We suggest daily fresh water hydration.
  • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change out the water. You will need to clean your vase with soap and water, rinse thoroughly, and then fill your vase back up with fresh water. Using soapy water rather than only rinsing can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to die more quickly.
  • Remove any strongly wilted contents: wilting leaves or stems. This will help you maintain a fresher and neater look.
  • Cut your stems at an angle using a sharp knife. We recommend cutting them one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will allow your flowers to hydrate and absorb the water properly. Using scissors to cut the stems is not recommended, as scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower’s ability to drink water.

    How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

    Once you have received your flowers, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference.

    Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

    Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

    How to maintain a beautiful presentation.

    For vase and basket arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration. When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.

    For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display. Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.
