How long will the bouquet last?
That will depend on what is in the bouquet and the after care it gets. Some flowers like ball dahlias can last up to a week whereas dinner plate dahlias can have a vase life of 3-4 days. Some flowers like statice will keep for a very long time due to their everlasting qualities. Your bouquet will have a variety of items in it that will last for varying amounts of time, but typically you can expect about a week from your flowers.
How do I care for the flowers once I bring them home?
1. Prepare a very clean vase with cool tap water.
2. Trim 1" off the bottoms of the stems with a sharp pair of snips or a knife.
3. Place the bouquet in the vase, away from direct sunlight. A cool room is bonus points!
4. Replace the water every couple of days. If your vase is opaque, check it often to make sure the water hasn't run out! Fresh cut flowers are very thirsty so make sure that the vase is always full of clean, fresh water.
5. Once a bloom is spent, just remove it and you can continue enjoying the rest.
I want to give a flower subscription as a gift. Can I do that?
Yes! We offer gift cards in paper form or are able to send a special e-gift email to the recipient in case you want to give that flower lover in your life a unique and thoughtful present. We also have digital gift cards in the Flower Shop that can be used towards a flower subscription of the recipient's choosing.
Can I request a specific flowers?
Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate specific flower requests. We do make sure to make each bouquet is varied with different colour themes, textures and shapes.
I can't handle strongly scented flowers. Can you accommodate this?
Possibly, if we are notified in advance. Please send an email or make a note in the shopping cart regarding scented flowers, however the majority of the blooms are not strongly scented.
I'm going away on vacation. Can I pick up my share at a later date?
If you are going to be away, please have a friend, colleague or family member pick up your flower share. Any bouquets that are not picked up during the designated time frame will be donated to market staff or others in the community.
Can I change my pick up location during the subscription?
You are allowed one location change per subscription before the season begins. We will be checking in with you prior to the start of the subscription to ensure that everything is in order. You are able to change your pick up location during this time. Once the subscription starts, pick up location changes are not allowed.
When will my subscription begin?
Even though I have given approximate start times, it's hard to know what the season will do. Growing conditions are at the mercy of the weather but you can be sure we are watching carefully and anxiously waiting for those first blooms, too! You will be notified by email about a week before the subscription starts with a few reminders.
Could I have some extra flowers to pick up with my share?
If you need a bouquet for a special birthday or event, we can add an additional one for sure. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any additional requests 3 days in advance so we can have something extra prepared for you.
