Are you the lucky recipient of one of our famous Burlap Wrapped Bouquets™ or designer vase arrangements? Here is how you care for that super fresh, Farmgirl-made beauty to ensure as many days of gorgeousness as possible!
If you received a burlap-wrapped
bouquet, take off ALL of our
super-duper wrapping, pick your favorite vase from that super high cabinet above your fridge, and wash it with soap and water. We know it's a pain, but that saying about cleanliness and Godliness is true for flowers too!
*Wondering what to do with that leftover burlap? Upcycle it again! Lots of creative customers that sent us pics of how they turned it into decorations, pillows, purses, and even curtains...
Next up, your bouquet needs
a fresh cut! This applies to you too,
vase-arrangement recipients! You want to cut at least 1/2" off the stems at a 45 degree angle to allow more surface area to drink water as well as ensure they don't sit flush with the bottom of the vase.
*Lil tip - Not sure how much to cut? The arrangement is designed so the kale (which is the lettuce looking flower) sits right above the lip of the vase
Just like us, your flowers are thirsty! Fill the vase with cool, clean water. Clean water prevents bacteria from growing (which is what causes flowers to expire - eek!). Here's the kicker - try to change the water DAILY, or as often as you can possibly remember!
*Lil' tip - the life of each variety of flower is different and, as you can see, we like lots of variety in our bouquets! To keep your flowers fresh as long as possible, take out the flowers as they expire so they don't spread bacteria to the flowers that are still lovin' life!
Give those pretty blooms some love!
Shout hooray! Sing their praises! Oh, and keep them out of direct sunlight and extreme heat (they're sensitive too!).
Last but not least, enjoy them and know that you must be pretty special for someone to care enough to send you American grown Farmgirl Flowers!
Oh, and why not snap them for the 'gram so you can spread the Farmgirl love! #fgflove
