We are excited to share some inside scoop of just why our flowers last such a long time!
The most important part......our coolers! (Which we have purchased two more coolers for the store as we have grown out of the one we have!)
When shopping for coolers it is so important to purchase good quality FLORAL coolers. There are LOTS of cooler options out there, but the wrong cooler can quickly destroy flowers and lessen their span of blooming.
Floral coolers are designed to keep moisture inside of the cooler. This helps hydrate the flowers and essentially extend their life span. A flower cooler also regulates the temperature of the cooler to a very specific temperature to ensure it properly stops the growth and blooming process of the flowers. To make sure we have the freshest flowers we purchase high end coolers and keep them serviced on a monthly basis!
Second, we do not keep our flowers for more than 5 days. We have a quick turn around time that ensures the time in our store is minimal. This keeps the flower varieties in our store always changing, but also ensures that our flowers go out to our customers at the prime time for blooming and your enjoyment!
Third, we use a process of cutting our stems properly to ensure they are able to gain the nutrients through our water and food mixture. We also use a process on our dry packed roses to pull the air out of the stems so they can quickly start absorbing those nutrients quickly without the fear of an air bubble stopping the nutrients from reaching the bloom!
Fourth, we have the best suppliers in the area. Our flower growers, both local and nationally, make sure we get our stems at the freshest possible times! They get them to us quickly and without damage. Our flowers arrive in the most secure packaging to avoid bruising and crushing of stems and blooms.
How did we learn all this?!?!? I took a very extensive test through the Michigan Floral Association (very few are even able to pass this test) to ensure I knew the very best possible ways to care for flowers and provide the very best to our awesome customers! We are truly passionate about delivering exceptional service and products!
