Fun Flower Facts
I need to send flowers to a hospital. What do I need to do?
If you order flowers to be delivered to a hospital, it's helpful to have the following ready when you call your florist: The name of the hospital, the patient's name, the room number (if possible), when you want the flowers delivered. It is also good to know if the hospital has a policy regarding flowers. For instance, most urgent care and intensive care units do not allow flowers. Sometimes hospital rooms have certain display areas for flowers, but they must be a specified size. We know all about the hospitals in our area so feel free to leave that up to us.
What are some plant care tips to help my plant last?
Keep plants in medium-light locations - out of direct sunlight. Natural light is best, but some plants can also thrive in office fluorescent light. Most flowering potted plants should be placed in areas with the most light in order to maintain good flower color and promote the maximum number of flowers to open. Foliage plants will do well under lower light levels and can be placed in areas providing reduced light. Plant soil should be kept moist at all times. Plants should not be allowed to dry out or wilt. Be careful to avoid overwatering - do not allow plants to stand in water. Avoid wetting plant leaves. Avoid excessive heat or cold. Plants should be kept in a cool spot (between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) for best performance. They should be kept away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, which causes plants to dehydrate.)
