Top Ten Reasons
Our Flowers are Cooler
- Our flowers are shipped to us in
climate-controlled trucks. Some local florist rely on FedEx or UPS for
the shipment of their flowers, which means that their flowers are exposed to
extreme temperatures for long periods of time at various airports. Ours are
not. This cold-chain management has been proven to be the single most
important thing we can do to maintain the longevity of life and freshness of
- 90% of our flowers receive their first
cut and drink of water here at our shop. The first cut is the most
important and we take care to ensure that all of our major bulk shipments of
flowers are cut first by our experienced floral professionals.
- Our flowers are cut underwater in clean
tanks. Cutting flowers under water is a unique technique that’s been
beneficial to flowers for their freshness, blossom size, stem stability and
longevity of vase life.
- We use hydration solution on our roses
and other weak-stemmed flowers. This hydration solution allows the
flowers to more readily absorb the water and nutrients in the water. This
technique prevents “bent neck” and makes the stems much more stable. This
solution gives the flowers extra nutrients that promotes blossom size and
increases the longevity of the flowers.
- Our flowers are stored in our
state-of-the-art 7000 cubic feet cooler kept at a perfect 35 degrees.
Our spacious cooler is 10 feet high, so we can store all of our flower
arrangements, deliveries, party work and wedding designs in the cooler until
time for delivery.
- All of our fresh flower arrangements are
hand delivered. We are a family-owned business and have promptly hand
delivered our flowers since 1932 by our own courteous and friendly
employees. We do not use contractors or delivery services to deliver our
- Our local delivery vans have rear
air-conditioning. This is yet another important part of the cold-chain
process. We believe it is absolutely necessary to keep our deliveries as
cool as possible while delivering to your door on those hot summer days.
- All arrangements are professionally
designed. Our floral professionals are the most experienced in the
business and our arrangements are always originally created by hand.
- Our orders are delivered same day!
Better than FedEx and UPS, we get your order delivered the same day you
place your order.
The flowers you receive from us are fresh and newly created.
Because of our large volume of business, our flowers are constantly being
rotated for beautiful designs and are not stored for long periods of time.
