January 21, 2019- The Iris is one of the most vibrant blooms we offer in the flower shop, adding a punch of color to any arrangement. The tall, eye catching stem will bring drama and much needed color. They are the birth flower for those born in February and the 25th wedding anniversary flower.
Irises come in over 200 species that vary in forms and color which include purple, lavender, white, yellow, orange, pink, blue and brown. While garden irises can come in any of these many varieties, the flower’s cut versions grown for arrangements are mostly blue, yellow, and white.
Care: Irises are known for their long stems. So, the first important thing to remember is to display these flowers in tall vases that will support the stems. Cut the stems at an angle to allow for better water absorption. Check the water level every other day and replenish as needed. Display your Iris bouquet in a cool spot away from direct sun and drafts.
January 14, 2019 - Several new items are starting to come in and our Geraniums for hanging baskets and containers arrived in our Edgerton location this week.
They come in as unrooted cuttings and they must be "stuck" into the soil as quickly as possible. Because they do not yet have roots, we must mist the leaves with water several times a day, so they can drink through the leaves.
Over the next few days, we will slowly back off on the misting to encourage root growth, and within a week they will be rooted enough that we don't have to use the mist anymore
January 7, 2019 - Give us a call at either location to bring the color back into your home.
