Flower Care

Posies Tips

Your fresh flowers may look a little thirsty when you arrive home, this is normal. Please follow these simple steps to care for your flower bouquet:

Prepare a clean vase or container with about 4 inches of fresh, cool water. If available mix in a little flower food to prevent bacteria and give added nutrients.

Remove your bouquet from the paper wrap. Remove any foliage from the flowers that will fall below the waterline of your container. This prevents the growth of mold or bacteria which can cause premature wilting.

Using sharp scissors or a knife, cut your stems diagonally, approximately one inch from the bottom of the stem. The angled cut allows for a larger surface area for water absorption.

Place your bouquet in water immediately after trimming the stems.

Keep your fresh flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts and excessive heat.

We recommend changing your water every 48-72 hours to help keep your flowers fresh. You can also give them a fresh trim when you change the water to keep them fully hydrated.

1. Remember exposing flowers to warm environments (outside, a hot room, sunlight, etc.) will help the flowers bloom, while storing your flowers in a cooler environment will slow down the opening process. Most flowers should be kept in a cool, dark location unless you are trying to speed up the blooming process. Always avoid direct sunlight and excessive heat.

Also, keep flowers away from fruits, vegetables and/or plants which produce ethylene gas. Ethylene in the surrounding area could cause your flowers to wilt.

I want to take a moment to reflect on this epic first year as the new pedal pusher to the cutest petal pusher in town. May 27 will be our first โ€œnew to meโ€ anniversary of Posies! To say itโ€™s been a dream come true is an understatement. The things weโ€™ve done, people weโ€™ve met, businesses we have had the privilege to serve, 2 moves (1.0 to home garage, 2.0 home garage to warehouse <โ€” did you follow that), the addition of Daisy, the fun & challenging events, the addition of โ€œโ€ฆโ€ <โ€” thereโ€™s that teaser thing again ๐Ÿ˜‚, the long hot workout of driving an old school VW (similar to riding a bike is how I describe it!), working with my new love @thunderbugtbl and of course the kindest man in town with his foundation @mikealstottfamilyfoundation. We want to also thank the great people of the @childrensdreamfund, @americancancersociety, all the PTAโ€™s who hired us to treat educators, the private businesses who treated medical workers, employees and customers!

I have laughed, cried, pushed myself to the brink of well I donโ€™t know what to call it & have worked tirelessly to make sure you continue to love this sweet biz of happy!

To our Posies Posse - @hydeparkvillage, @starkeymarket, @cafe.vino.tinto, 
@utcsarasota,

@peacheysbakingco 
@bogota_kitchen, @fergssportsbar - wow, thank you for showing us the love & support! You welcomed us with open sidewalks, parking spots and front lawns - we canโ€™t thank you enough!

To my Flowerista team, thank you for listening to my endless chatter and going along for this epic ride. You know who you are! I love you all!

I started this with a quote about following your dreams. Iโ€™m here to tell no matter your age you can achieve anything you want with hard work, a little crazy (ok maybe a lot of crazy), determination and know itโ€™s never ever to late to follow your dreams.

Iโ€™m in my lane and I love every second of it!  Thank you again for everything, itโ€™s been epic because of you! Your friend, Steph ๐Ÿ’•
