Flower Care

First Things First...

Open your boxes and after doing a little happy dance - inspect your flowers. Remove all flowers from the box by cutting any straps. Now, stop and smell the flowers *deep breath*... Okay, continue.

I'm Thirsty!

Fill a clean vase with water and flower food!

Fill containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water. Mix flower food in the water to prevent bacteria and give added nutrients to the flowers. We cannot guarantee that every farm-fresh shipment will include flower food, but it can be easily purchased from a local florist or in your grocery store. Sometimes they will even give you a few free packets if you ask nicely!

Pull & Pluck

Remove leaves that fall below the top of the vase.

Remove any foliage from the flowers that falls below the waterline of your vase. In removing foliage, care should be taken not to damage the stem. This prevents the growth of mold or bacteria, which can cause premature wilting.


Give stems a fresh cut.

Using sharp scissors or a knife, cut stems diagonally, approximately one inch from the stem's bottom edge. An angled cut will allow for a larger surface area for water absorption and prevents the ends fo your stems from sitting flat in the container blocking water absorption.

Drink Up!

Place in the vase immediately.

Give flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Most flowers will take 8 to 12 hours to fully hydrate. Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts and excessive heat.


The Thirst Is Real

After 2 days, repeat the steps.

Change water every 24 hours and re-cut stems every 24-48 hours to keep flowers fresh. Ensure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.


Wreath & Garland Care

Open your boxes and after doing a little happy dance - inspect your wreath. Remove from the box by cutting any straps. Now, stop and smell the wreath *deep breath*... Okay, continue. Some needle loss or shifting is normal during transportation, carefully lift your wreath out of the box and gently tap the frame to allow any loose foliage to fall.

Fall Wreath

Fresh from the farm!

Fall wreaths usually require a bit of plumping, allowing the leaves to breathe after they have traveled. If you purchased a fresh greenery wreath, and won't be hanging it immediately, store the wreath in the plastic liner or wax coated box to retain moisture and store in a cool, dark place. Be sure to allow air flow around the wreath as it still needs sufficient room to breathe.

Hydrate Your Wreath!

Give your wreath a drink or spritz of water.

Watering your greens wreath depends where you plan to display it. If you plan to hang it outdoors in a cool climate, no watering is necessary. However, if kept indoors or outdoors in a warm climate, your wreath will need extra water. We recommend laying your wreath in a few inches of water to allow the cut stems to absorb water for an hour or so. After it is displayed, you may spritz it with water every few days, as you notice it looking a bit dry.
