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.
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.
