  • Tips on care for your plants during the coming winter.

    <p><strong>We've been getting quite a few calls on plant care during the winter so here it goes...</strong></p><p>Many houseplants hunker down for an extended period of rest during the winter months. They'll stop flowering and growing new leaves. Some species will drop leaves and that's okay! You haven't killed it. It's getting ready to rest, just like trees and plenty of garden plants. Depending on the plant, dormancy can last for several weeks to a couple of months and you'll need to adjust you plant care routine accordingly.</p><p>Cut Back on Water</p><p>Since plants don't expend much energy when they're dormant, they don't need as much water as they normally would. This also means that plants are particularly susceptible to overwatering during the winter. You'll know if you're overwatering if the leaves look droopy and start to turn yellow and if the soil seems to be taking an unusually long time to dry out. Generally you should water about half as often as you would during the growing season, but it's best to feel the soil before watering (just like you usually do, right?). Only water when the soil is dry about an inch or two down. If in doubt, let it alone for a few more days. Some desert plants like cacti and succulents may not need water at all during winter.</p><p>Stop Fertilizing</p><p>You also need to lay off the fertilizer during the winter. With fertilizer, it's easy to have too much of a good thing. Plants don't need it while they're dormant, and too much fertilizer sitting around in the soil can actually kill them.</p><p>Protect Your Plants from Drafts and Heat Vents</p><p>Plants can be picky about where you keep them during the winter. Most, especially tropical plants, won't tolerate drafts, which is tough because they also need light. Move plants a few inches back from the windows, and if your windows are particularly drafty stuff an old scarf along the sill to keep cold air out. You might also want to get yourself some door socks for exterior doors.</p><p>On the flip side, plants don't like blasts of hot air every time your radiator kicks in either. The fluctuation in temperature stresses them out, and heat makes the air even drier, which they don't appreciate. Move them if you can, or consider closing vents near your plants if that's a possibility. You can also try the usual tricks to increase humidity: grouping plants together, misting, setting out a tray of water, and running a humidifier.</p><p>Give Your Plants a Bath</p><p>How often do you remember to dust your houseplants when you're cleaning? Leaves accumulate a lot of dust, and since there's now wind to take care of it like there is in the natural world, it's up to you to intervene so that the plant can breathe. You can wipe down the individual leaves with a cloth.</p><p>You'll know your plant has come out of dormancy when you notice new leaves and shoots forming.</p>

  • Tips to Keep Your Flowers Lasting Longer

    <p> We take pride in delivering the freshest, highest-quality flowers. Our florists are often asked how to keep them looking beautiful as long as possible. Luckily, just a little extra care can make a big difference.</p><p> Most arrangements will last from four to seven days or longer depending on the type of flowers included and the level of care they receive. Here are a few helpful tips for keeping those blossoms looking healthy and vibrant for you to enjoy.</p><p> <img src="" alt="" style="margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: 10px; width: 312px; float: right;"></p><ul> <li>1. Remove any leaves that will be below the waterline. Leaves in the water promote bacterial growth, which will cause the flowers to wilt quickly.</li></ul><ul> <li>2. Using garden shears, cut the end of the stem off while holding it underwater. This allows the stems to draw in water instead of air. Make sure it’s a clean, diagonal cut, so the flowers can drink nutrients from the water easily.</li></ul><ul> <li>3. Change dirty water regularly. Wash the vase and replace it with nice, clean water every other day. Giving the flowers a clean environment will keep them happy and ward off bacterial growth.</li></ul><ul> <li>4. Avoid placing your flowers where heating or cooling vents can blow air on them. Areas directly under ceiling fans or on top of appliances that give off heat (like older televisions, radiators, etc.), will cause your flowers to dry out and wilt faster.</li></ul><ul> <li>5. Place away from direct sunlight. It may seem counterintuitive, but your flowers will maintain their freshness much longer if they’re not overheated.</li></ul><p> We value all the emotions flowers can make us feel – excited, sentimental, appreciated, loved. Help the feeling last longer by taking care of your arrangement and keeping it looking it’s freshest for days on end. Have other questions about your flowers? Feel free to <a href="https://[FLORIST-URL&91;/contact-us/">contact us</a> or call our professional florists at the shop, and we’re happy to pass along the information you need.</p>

You can send flowers anytime!</p><h4>#1. Columbus Day – October 13th</h4><p>The anniversary of Columbus landing in the new world is celebrated the world over. It became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937 and was officially set as the second Monday in October in 1970. Nothing like some lovely flowers to show your appreciation of the discovery of the Americas!</p><h4>#2. Boss’s Day – October 16th</h4><p>It’s the boss’s job to appreciate and value her workers on a daily basis. But when does the boss ever get a little recognition? Now you can let the head man or woman in your office know how much you appreciate them with a lovely arrangement or living plant. Who knows? There might be a raise in it for you!</p><h4>#3. Sweetest Day – October 18th</h4><p>Celebrated on the third Saturday in October, this holiday is a celebration of candy and all the delicious wonders it brings. It is traditionally celebrated by being sweet to someone you love. That has to mean flowers, doesn’t it?

Don’t forget the sweet this Sweetest Day. Send flowers!</p><h4>#4. Mother-In-Law Day – October 26th</h4><p>The 4th Sunday in October is reserved for Mother-in-Law Day. Yes, that means it is sometimes concurrent with Halloween. Thought that may seem apt to some of you, but the rest of us love our mothers-in-law and are excited to have a day to celebrate their contribution to the family. And even if your relationship with your mother-in-law is less than cordial, perhaps a lovely arrangement of flowers could be the first step in changing it!</p><h4>#5. Halloween – October 31st</h4><p>Is it quirky dress-up time yet? Oh yeah! It’s time to put on someone else’s clothes and throw a party! And what are some of the best party decorations ever discovered?
