    Christmas

    How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

    Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

    First things first
    Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference
    Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

    Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

    Maintaining a beautiful presentation
    Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

    • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
    • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
    • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
    • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
    • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

    Valentine's Day

    How far in advance should I order flowers for Valentine’s Day?

    The sooner you place your order, the better. You can set the day for your delivery on any day in the future. When you place your order and set your future delivery in advance, you secure your selection and prevent placing your order during a time of limited supply. You provide yourself with the assurance that your product choice will be able to be filled when the time comes.

    The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are to receive the exact florals you desire. During an order-dense period of time, such as Valentine’s Day, specific flower supplies run low or go out of stock, and the shop relies upon a new shipment to come in. This often results in flower substitutions to fill an order.

    Be your hero and not your enemy.


    Do I order my flowers online or in-person?
    This is up to you! We offer the convenience for you to easily select, order, pay, and set a delivery date for your flowers. You will be able to provide your desired card message and delivery instructions once you select the arrangement of your choice.

    If you would like to place your order in-person at ALLISON HARDWARE & FLORAL, we would be delighted to speak with you and assist with your needs. While you’re with us, feel free to inquire about any questions you may have and our associates would be glad to help you.

    If you are unable to travel to the shop and you have questions regarding the details of your order or other needs, please feel free to contact us at (319) 267-2342.
