Fun Flower Facts
I want to send flowers to Mom. What should I send?
Let's face it. Moms deserve a floral reward just about every day of the year. And, what moms want more than anything is to feel their kids' love. So, how easy is this? Pick a day, any day, and send her the kind of flowers that express your love. Choose flowers that say something about her. Does she love purple? Does her favorite painting have daisies? Did she carry roses at her wedding? On her birthday, tuck an old photo of her and you into the card with a note saying another year younger. Or, send her flowers you grew in your garden growing up. For many of us, an aunt, a godmother, in-law or even a family friend has been a mom to us. Return the love with a gift of flowers saying, Thank you for the impact you've made on my life.
What does it mean when the water in my vase turns yellow and cloudy?
This is a natural sign that bacteria are growing in the water. Bacteria can clog stems and shorten the vase life of flowers, so keep the water clear at all times to ensure the longevity of your blooms. If your water starts to turn cloudy, immediately empty the vase and add fresh water, preferably mixed with floral food. Re-cut the stems with a sharp knife under warm water before placing them in the vase of fresh water.
