Farmers West Bouquets
FARMERS WEST bouquets are made with fresh, California flowers grown to meet the exacting Veriflora green standards which emphasize environmental responsibility. All bouquets are hand-tied in the spiral European Style. These natural beauties are individually arranged by hand, not bunched on a mechanized assembly line. Our bouquets are styled and ready to be placed in a vase as soon as they arrive at their new home. Less waste is created than the traditional bouquet in floral foam and a disposable plastic container. Seasonal & Holiday Selections - Bouquets that encompass traditional holidays as well as changing times of the year reflected with the appropriate seasonal flair. Cultural Creations - A line of bouquets comprised of flowers and fillers chosen accordingly to represent different cultural tastes, colors, and holidays with an international flair.
Fill clean container with water and fresh flower food.
Strip leaves below water level to discourage bacteria growth.
Cut 1' (3cm) off of stem at a 45° with a sharp knife or scissors for better water absorption.
Avoid direct sunlight & hot areas (like TV's)
Keep flowers, lilies in particular, away from vegetable and fruit which produce ethylene. Lilies are sensitive to ethylene which makes them age faster.
Refresh water every 2-3 days and add appropriate amount of flower food.
To prevent staining fabric or skin, remove lily's anthers (pollen) as soon as the flower begins to bloom with a tissue and discard.
If your clothes become stained with pollen remove with a piece of tape. If the petals of the flower become stained you may also use tape by gently dabbing the affected area.
