In the box you’ll find big red and orange football mums, Opera and fireball spraymums, and fluffy solidago.

Our flowers will be laid out head to tail, carefully remove your stems from the tissue paper and trim ¼ of an inch of the bottom of each stem as you begin arranging them in your vase. Add one pack of flower food and read your flower care guide!

This Weeks Stems
Red Rosetta Disbuds
These huge football chrysanthemums are a staple of ours. They come from Quik Farm in Chilliwack. They last for ages and always bring the wow factor to a bouquet. They love their flower food so make sure to trim the stems and change the water in their second week.
Opera/Fireball Spray Mums
These fun little button mums come from Dutch Heritage, and are the first we’ve gotten from their new greenhouse in Chilliwack! They never disappoint and last for ages.
Willem Orange Disbud
These huge football chrysanthemums are a staple of ours. They last for ages and always bring the wow factor to a bouquet. They love their flower food so make sure to trim the stems and change the water in their second week.
Soaking up the last of the solidago before it’s out of season for the winter. Cut especially for us by Smit Nursery, we simply love using it in our arrangements.

When your flowers arrive they may look a little tired, but fear not, they will perk right up once they have some water!
Cut all of your stems at a 45 degree angle and trim off the leaves below the water line.
Be sure to add your flower food, it makes a world of difference!
After 3-4 days, recut your stems, change the water and add the second pack of flower food.
Some of your flowers may last longer than others, freshen up the arrangement by pruning the spent stems.
