November 9 - November 15
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 Oriental Lilies, Spray Mums, Ornamental Kale, Dianthus, and Eucalyptus
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, carefully pulling apart the leaves to open it up. Next add your lilies on opposite sides of the vase, and fill in the middle with your spray mums. Lastly, dot your fluffy dianthus and fragrant eucalyptus throughout!

Once you give these fragrant beauties a few days to open up, they’ll quickly become the star of the show. As they open they’ll need lots of water so make sure to watch that water level!
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!
Baby Blue Eucalyptus
One of our favourite greens is the perfect finishing touch to this week’s bouquet. We love tying these stems together once the bouquet is finished and hanging them in the shower for a spa vibe!
This week is all about texture so we had to use two different kinds of mums from Quik’s Farm! They’re really long lasting, just make sure you keep your water fresh and use that flower food.
We’re giving a warm Bear’s Blooms welcome to this funky stem! Thanks Blue Magic Greenhouses for this week’s new addition.

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.
