How to Take Care of an Orchid Purchased from Your Florist

Orchids are some of the most beautiful flowering plants that we know of. Their blooms last many weeks, they are very elegant and they are very easy to take care of. So many of these beautiful plants wind up in the garbage after their blooms fall off because the customer thought that they has killed it when the plant was very much alive and would have bloomed again once or twice during the next year. Orchid plants can live a very long time, but here are some tips to maximize their vitality. The main thing you can do to destroy an orchid plant is over-water it. Orchids come from a tropical environment and are used to heavy soaking rainfall followed by periods where they completely dry out. This is what you need to recreate in your home and it is very simple to do. What you need to do is: 1.

Why You Should Not Use Online Only Internet Florists

, , ,

Throughout recent history, when you wanted to send somebody flowers, you would walk into your local Las Vegas flower shop; make your selection, place your order and your florist would deliver your flowers locally to whomever you wanted to send them to. Soon after that, florists were able to use a service that most of us have called a wire service. A wire service allows us to send orders between states, while providing you with a local brick and mortar store to walk into, make your selection and come back to if there is a problem with your order. The way that a wire service works financially is when you place your order here with us at our brick and mortar store and we wire it out to another florist in another state for delivery, we will make 20% of the total cost of that order, the wire service will make 10% and the filling florist in another state will make 70% of the cost of that order plus their delivery charge to deliver that order to your loved one. With the advent of the interne

Get The Most For Your Money By Ordering a Designers Choice Arrangement

When you make that call to order flowers for your loved one, consider letting the florist choose the varieties and design. This can go a long way towards you getting a larger arrangement with better looking flowers than if the florist must stick to a specific recipe. One of the reasons for this is that flowers are perishable items, similar to grocery store produce. When you go to the grocery store, strawberries may look great today, but, apples may be looking a little less than desirable. A florist goes shopping in the morning before they open and will pick what looks best today. Therefore if you trust the florist to make that decision you will ultimately be getting the best varieties that were offered that day. Another reason why you may get a better end product is that if your arrangement calls for 3 orange asiatic lilies and there just so happens to be no perfect asiatic lilies that day, the florist may be forced to use some imperfect ones just to satisfy the recipe for the arrange

Adding Meaning to Your Floral Arrangement

So often people walk into our shop and see a dozen bright yellow roses and ask us “What does yellow mean again? I can’t remember. Does it mean excitement? Does it mean friendship?” I think we can all agree that red roses symbolize love, but all the other colors of roses will mean various things depending on where you find the list of meanings. This got us thinking about the meanings of the different colors of roses and since there is no real truth behind these meanings, it got us thinking about how much more special a gift would be if there were a story behind it.  If you could attach a story to the gift of flowers it would almost be as if it were something that you handmade yourself for this person. So next time you send flowers in Las Vegas , think hard about the shapes and colors and relate them to something in life that you share with this person or expresses some feelings you have for this person and let them know this on the enclosure card. Your gift will
