July 20 - July 26
What to Expect
If you’ve opted in for this week you can expect this whimsical summer bouquet on Tuesday or Wednesday if you’re in Vancouver, Thursday if you’re in Richmond, Surrey, or Coquitlam or on Friday if you’re on the North Shore or in Burnaby.
In the Box
In the box you’ll find disbuds, lisianthius, solidago, phlox and veronika.
In the Vase
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!
We can’t wait for you to see this week’s bouquet! Let this bouquet see you through this late July week. The whole bouquet will need a few days to open once it arrives.
This Weeks Stems
Thanks Quik Farms for these gorgeous long lasting stems. They love their flower food so make sure you’re using that throughout the week. You will either get the green bombellini disbuds or the white magnum disbuds!
Thank’s Smit Nursery for these beautiful summer wildflowers. We love using solidago to give summer bouquets their whimsical wildness.
Welcome back lisianthus! We love these delicate stems and the vibrant pop of colour it brings to this week’s bouquet. We’re so pleased that Quik Farms has added these fun stems to their greenhouses!
Welcome Phlox! Give these guys a few days to pop open to reveal their delicate little blooms. These little fragrant flowers are just the touch that this bouquet needs, thank’s Springbrook!
We love playing with heights in our bouquets and these little spikes are the perfect flower for it! To us, veronika are the quintessential summer flower.
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.
