HOW TO BUY STORE FLOWERS

If possible ask what day & time flowers are delivered & best time to purchase, file the stores best days & time.

 

Avoid any flowers that have brown on tip or wilted.

 

Turn flowers upside down & shake gently – if pedals and leaves fall out avoid.

 

Place flowers in store provided flower holder or place on child seat without groceries.

 

Pack separately and return home directly & follow receiving flower instructions.

 

If you have a car, place a container in the well behind front seat & secure gently with front seat…I bring a small bottle of water and place in container- flowers do not enjoy being out of water.
