Mother's Day

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

As your mother is basking in the glory of her new beautiful florals, she will want to preserve that beauty for as long as possible. We have included a few fresh flower care tips to help. Feel free to send her this easy-to-follow guide once her flowers have been delivered.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic wrapping, you would want to remove the plastic as soon as possible. This will allow the flowers to breathe. Secondly, you will want to give fresh water to your flowers to provide hydration. Place bouquets in a vase of appropriate size or fill your current vase with fresh water. If you need to, you can trim the stem’s ends to fit a vase you have. We recommend cutting flower stems at an angle with a sharp knife.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. Too much heat or sun exposure can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Cooler and more controlled conditions will be best to help preserve the beauty of your flowers.

Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or in the vicinity of cigarette smoke. These can produce ethylene gas which can reduce the life of your flowers and cause them to die more quickly.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

  • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with water. This allows the plants to drink the water they need and provides them hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we suggest still adding daily fresh water to your flowers.
  • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change the water out with fresh water. It would be good to clean the inside of your vase during this change before placing your flowers back into the vase. Using soapy water can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly. Then make sure you rinse your vase thoroughly.
  • As wilting leaves or stems occur, remove the strongly wilted contents to allow the fresher parts to be the center of attention.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will help your flowers better absorb water. We recommend avoiding using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower from being able to absorb the water.

Sweetest Day

Send Someone Sweet A Little Treat

Do you often see someone who goes out of their way to make someone’s day sweeter? Sweetest Day is the perfect day to show your admiration for those who make your life a little better.

What is Sweetest Day?

Originally created by a candy confectioner from Cleveland, Ohio in 1921 to spread joy to those who are often forgotten. Still standing as a day of kindness, Sweetest Day has evolved into recognizing the people we care for.

Who Can I Give Flowers On Sweetest Day?

Unlike Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day is not a solely romantic holiday, nor is it as stressful. Sweetest Day is focused on spreading cheer to anyone around you through a small treat. Gift ideas like flowers accompanied by a little baggy of sweet treats is an excellent way to celebrate Sweetest Day. Today is the day to offer an extra expression of affection to someone close to you!

Co-workers

We work alongside peers regularly and often forget to show care and appreciation for them. Whether you have a work bestie or feel a co-worker could use a good deed or piece of encouragement, a sweet floral arrangement can be a wonderful way to brighten their day. If you want to share words of encouragement or affirmation with them, you can provide a personalized card message in the online ordering process that will be delivered with their flowers.

Neighbors

If you’ve never had formal introductions, now is a perfect opportunity to break the ice and warm their heart. Sometimes we don’t know the ones who live right across or beside us. Don’t be a stranger. Break the ice and offer the kind gesture of flowers with a heartwarming card message. Not sure how to start that conversation? No problem. Smile, kindly introduce yourself, explain that it’s Sweetest Day, and then offer them their gift. This could be a good way to encourage them or potentially be the beautiful beginning of a good friendship. It never hurts to spread the cheer.

Friends / Family / Special Someone

Surprise your besties, that special one, or your family with a gorgeous bouquet and shower them with words of affirmation through a special card message. Let them know how much you appreciate them and the things about them that are so special to you. If you’re really close, you could select a bouquet that incorporates their favorite colors or favorite flowers. To make a truly perfect pair, add some of their favorite candies or treats along with their beautiful bouquet. If they haven’t heard of Sweetest Day before, here is your opportunity to introduce them to this sweet holiday.

Sweetest Day Delivery

Interested in delivery for those you know? Maybe you would like to have flowers delivered to your home first before handing them out to someone new or send their Sweetest Day flowers directly to them. @Shop_name offers easy and convenient delivery. Simply place your order online, type the desired address, delivery instructions, and desired delivery date, and we can take care of the rest.

Halloween

You know it is telltale signs that Halloween is approaching when you begin seeing the seasonal candy aisle fill up, the air grows cooler, and the leaves begin to change. Your excitement begins to build and start to consider what your fun plans are with friends and family in your free time. However, one quick way to throw a hatchet in your fun is when you’ve realized you should have taken action sooner. You stop on the candy aisle and realize you waited too long and all of your favorite candies you originally planned to include are bought out. The costume you’ve been eyeing and debating to commit to is no longer available. Had you only purchased your desires in advance, then your Halloween festivities would have felt spook-tacular. Don’t make the mistake of waiting until it’s too late. Select and order your fang-tastic Halloween flowers now. YOUNG'S GREENHOUSE & FLOWER SHOP has a variety of festive flowers for your exploration. Find the arrangement that meets your theme needs or that you love most. You can easily set your flower’s delivery date in advance to arrive exactly when you want them to. Forget the fuss, rest easy, and play hard. You will be glad you ordered early. When the order volume is high, flower shops are likely to run low on particular or popular flowers. If you have a specific arrangement you have been dying to have, don’t hesitate to secure your order and beat the crowd. You’ll have that spell-tastic table beautifully decorated in no time. If you have any questions regarding the details of your order, a product, or your delivery, please feel free to contact YOUNG'S GREENHOUSE & FLOWER SHOP at (260) 245-0012. We would be glad to help.

Thanksgiving (USA)

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

Now that you have your lovely flowers for the holiday season, you would like to preserve their beauty for as long as possible. We have provided some fresh flower care tips to help. If you are giving flowers to friends or family, feel free to share this page with them so that they will be able to care for their flowers soon after their delivery.

First things first
Most flowers are delivered with a plastic covering. Remove all plastic to all your flowers to breathe. Next, if your flowers are already in a vase or you have just placed them in a vase, refill the vase with fresh water. Your flowers will love the hydration.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
It is best to avoid placing your flower in areas of extreme temperatures: windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These can cause wilting or dry out your flowers. Instead, place your flowers somewhere where they will be in cooler and more controlled conditions.

It is always good to prevent the possibility of ethylene gas reducing the life of your flowers. This can often come from placing flowers near fruit or cigarette smoke.

Maintaining your flower’s beautiful presentation
As your beautiful flowers are on display, check up on them and tend to them periodically over a series of days.

  • For vase arrangements, keep your vase filled with fresh water to provide them with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, it is good to also provide them with hydration. We suggest daily fresh water hydration.
  • Anytime the water begins to become cloudy, change out the water. You will need to clean your vase with soap and water, rinse thoroughly, and then fill your vase back up with fresh water. Using soapy water rather than only rinsing can help remove bacteria that could cause your flowers to die more quickly.
  • Remove any strongly wilted contents: wilting leaves or stems. This will help you maintain a fresher and neater look.
  • Cut your stems at an angle using a sharp knife. We recommend cutting them one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. This will allow your flowers to hydrate and absorb the water properly. Using scissors to cut the stems is not recommended, as scissors can crush the stems and hinder the flower’s ability to drink 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 YOUNG'S GREENHOUSE & FLOWER SHOP, 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 (260) 245-0012.
