Fun Flower Facts
When cutting floral stems, is it best to use scissors or a knife?
The most important thing to remember is that you want the cut to be clean. We always recommend a sharp knife but sometimes sharp scissors can provide just as sharp of a cut. If the scissors are too dull, the stem can get crimped, causing the passageway to be blocked.
I want to send flowers to a friend. What flowers are best for friendship?
One of the best-kept secrets is that a gift of flowers from one friend to another is the perfect fit, and the flower power can be immense. Pick a flower or flowers that remind you of your friend's unique spirit, and include a note linking the flower to them. One of the greatest gifts you can give a person is the gift of really seeing them, especially at the times that matter most. There is something magical about sharing your life's path with a friend for those important milestones... marking special times with flowers will keep you in their memories forever. Congratulate them on a professional achievement, a baby or anything new, or send a big dose of love when they really need it most, after a break-up or a spell of bad news. The time to build a friendship is when it's strong, so one of my favorite times to express my appreciation is when they're least expecting it.
