How can cut flowers stay fresher for a longer period of time?

User Avatar
if you have a full grown flower then stick it in the fridge normally but if its a smaller flower you can put it in a baggie with a tiny bit of water and put it in the fridge and it will stay fresh for maybe a week or so.

Would you recommend Flowers Sent Today?

User Avatar
Absolutely not. My daughter ordered flowers online for Mothers Day delivery. They called her on the phone and told her they did not have the product she wanted and could not complete the order. So she ordered something from Flowers.com which arrived in good time. I left town on Tuesday after Mothers Day and didn't return until Sunday evening to find a vase of totally dead cut flowers at the front door. Apparently they delivered them after all and left them there to die. No attempt was made to leave a phone message or note on the other door. I contacted the florist when I got home and she was extremely rude. She blamed it all on Flowers Sent Today. After many calls to other online floral services who were very kind and tried to look for my order, I finally connected with the customer service representative at Flowers Sent Today. She refused to talk to me because I was not the sender, only the recipient. I don't think they would be violating any HIPPA rules by being kind and talking to me. After all, I am the one who knows what happened. It is only hearsay from my daughter telling them that the flowers were dead. They also used a florist in another town about 40 miles away when there are several within 5 miles of my house who always call ahead for a delivery to make sure someone is home. I live in Louisiana and even an hour in our heat is devastating to fresh cut flowers. Flowers Sent Today is owned and operated by Karin's Flowers of Viena, Virginia and I'm sure they would do a lovely job delivering for you locally. For orders outside their delivery area, finding local florists that actually fulfill the orders will give you the most product for your dollars spent. yes and no. yes: the product was good no: I odered on Tuesday for a Wednesday delivery and paid extra to rush delivery. The flowers weren't delivered until Thursday...so much for flowers sent TODAY.

Which is the most popular flower?

User Avatar
Roses are considered the most romantic flowers. Red represents love, and yellow means friendship. Although roses are extremely beautiful, there are other flowers that are now becoming very popular, as well. Orchids, carnations; and lilies are often sought out because of their durability.

The plumule is the bud of a young plant; the portion of the plant embryo giving rise to the first true leaves. Without the plumule you'd have no leaves.

What are Inexpensive flowers?

User Avatar
Inexpensive Flowers As a florist for 10 years, I have heard this question a million times. Inexpensive doesn't necessarily mean carnations, daisies and the such. Even though flowers are grown year round and world wide, I believe in the seasons of things. As tomatoes are great in summer, in the winter they really suck. So is the nature of flowers. Springtime is good for bulb flowers, tulips, hyacinths, freesia in addition to stock, roses and lilies. Summer is great for sunflowers, solidago (an aster), liatris. Look for bright and colorful during this time. Fall is good for the foliages, berries, and grasses (wheat, barley). Winter is good for greens. I mean fresh smelly greens. There are a variety of flowers that are cool and are essentially inexpensive year round for example; alstroemeria (they last a long time), stock (very fragrant), and of course roses. Summer and fall are the times to buy roses cheap. The growers are gearing up for Christmas and selling everything cheap. One rose stem should be around $2.20 to $2.50 retail. When you are thinking about inexpesive, remember the vase. We have to charge for them and that is usually double the wholesale price. For a basic vase arrangement for $10.00 I would use 2 snapdragons, 2 alstroemeria, 1 or 2 roses (depending on the bud size) or a lily. Holdidays (Xmas, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day) growers and wholesaler jack the prices up way high so try to avoid that time.
