EMY’s “Other Page” you will find a variety of things that we think may interest some clients. This section will include floral care tips, seasonal or special holiday arrangements, corsages, boutonnieres, vases or pictures from a recent flower show in support of our blog. At times we may feature seasonal flowers, such as, peonies, ranunculus and tulips.

 

We hope that this section gives you more to enjoy from EMY Flowers.

Flower Care

  • Carefully remove all packaging.
  • Keep the string tied around stems if you want to retain a strong shape on hand-tied bouquets; remove it if you want to arrange the flowers yourself.
  • Using a sharp, clean blade or scissors, cut 1 inch off each stem at a 45-degree angle.
  • Place the bouquet in a clean vase that is large enough to allow the stems to reach at least halfway down. Fill three-quarters of the vase with lukewarm water and add flower food. Do not use metal containers if using flower food, as metal can neutralize the food’s beneficial effects.
  • Remove any foliage that may lie below the water level; these will decompose and contaminate the water with bacteria, killing off your flowers.
  • Place the bouquet in a cool position, away from heating or cooling vents and appliances, direct sunlight or draughts.
  • Keep the flowers away from fruit – the gas that is given off when ripening will kill your flowers.

Add fresh water regularly.
