October 26 - November 1
What to Expect
If you’ve opted in for this week you can expect this fragrant bouquet on Tuesday or Wednesday if you’re in Vancouver, Wednesday if you’re in Victoria, Thursday if you’re in Richmond, Surrey, or Burnaby, or on Friday if you’re on the North Shore or in the Tri-Cities.
In the Box
In the box you’ll find disbuds, spray mums, snapdragons, Ornamental Kale and grass
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. Remember to add one pack of flower food to your water!
We can’t wait for you to see this week’s bouquet! We recommend starting with your Ornamental Kale around the outside of your vase, pulling apart the leaves to open it up. Next add your disbuds in between the kale, and fill in the middle with your spray mums. Stand your snapdragons tall in the middle of your bouquet and pop your grass in around the bottom of the bouquet.
This Weeks Stems
thanks Quik Farms for these gorgeous blooms in such a wonderful array of complimenting textures and colours. Chrysanthemums love their flower food so make sure to change the water often and use that second pack a few days in!
We love these fragrant spiky flowers. They add the perfect height to this bouquet and keep it smelling amazing. Make sure to stop and smell the flowers!
A small but fun finishing touch to this week’s bouquet - ornamental grass!
These colourful sprays are some of our favourites, in fact we wait all year for them to come in! They’re from the same family as the disbuds so the same rules apply: make sure to use that flower food!
Ornamental Kale: We love this funky bloom. It won’t open up on it’s own so be sure to gently pull apart the leaves until it looks like a giant rose in full bloom!

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.
