FIELD FRESH FLOWERS: HARVESTING HAPPINESS
At Ivy and Oak Farm, we grow speciality cut flowers and foliage. From flower subscriptions (2021 Information coming mid-November) that highlight the colors of the season to custom floral arrangements to the DIY Wedding Bulk Bucket Botanicals, let us harvest happiness from our fields to your tables.
- GET THE LONGEST LIFE OUT OF YOUR FLOWERS WITH THE BELOW TIPS -
Trim Your Stems: Trim about a 1/2" of your flower stems before you put them in their vase and every 3-4 days after receiving. This trim helps remove any dead tissue that may block the stem from delivering water to the flower. If your arrangement contains Daffodils, keep those separate from your other flowers for 24hrs to allow the stem ends to seal, preventing the toxins the stem emits from poisoning your other flowers.
Refresh & Replenish Your Water: Flowers can be heavy drinkers. Check your water levels daily and every 3-4 days replace the water in the vase. By dumping out your old water and providing new water to the flowers, you're helping eliminate the potential for bacterial build-up. Want to be extra? Clean your vase with soapy water each time you replace the water.
Keep Your Flowers Away From Fresh Fruit & Veggies: Some flowers are sensitive to ethylene, the odorless invisible gas that fresh fruits and veggies (like bananas and apples) emit.
