July 27 - August 2
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 lilies, alstroemeria, phlox, allium, and eryngium.
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 hot July week. The whole bouquet will need a few days to open once it arrives.
This Weeks Stems
Welcome to the family Allium! This cool little bloom comes from, believe it or not, the onion family! Thanks Springbrook Farms.
Another Bear’s Blooms first! These beautiful thistles, or eryngium, are such fun and we’re so glad to welcome them to the bouquet lineup! Thanks Springbrook Farms!
A big thank you to Eurosa Farms for these pops of colour. Give them a few days to open up once they arrive!
Thanks Fairfield Propagators for these beauties! We will be shipping these pink and white blooms tightly closed so please be patient while the open up. Give them lots of space in the vase to open up, overcrowding makes these stems very unhappy! They love their flower food so make sure to use it all up.
Welcome back 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 Farms!
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.
