This Valentine’s Day, let’s be thankful for those who are dearest to us. Roses have long been that symbol of adoration, and it’s with gratitude in mind that we lovingly take care of these blooms from the moment they arrive. Proper hydration starts instantly, with each rose receiving a fresh cut. No need to pre-order your roses either. Simply come see us or visit DLMDriveUp.com to add roses to your next curbside order.
Fresh Flower Basic Care Tips
- Place fresh flowers in water as soon as possible. If they’ll be out of water for longer than one hour once you leave our store, tell us so we can wrap the stems.
- Beware of extreme temperatures. Fresh flowers in a hot car are doomed as are ones left exposed to the winter elements.
- Fill a clean vase with cold, clean water. Trim stems with sharp knife or pair of scissors. Remove any foliage that will be below the water. Change water and re-cut stems every three days (don’t forget the flower food).
- Find the perfect spot. Place your vase in an area that is away from sunlight, heaters, or drafts. These will cause your flowers to wilt quickly
