Fresh Cut Flowers and Boxed Roses:
As soon as you receive them, add floral-food (provided) to a clean vase. Remove the leaves from the lower stem of each flower. Cut each stem at an angle, under running water, with a sharp knife so that the flower can "drink". Refill water daily or as needed.
Keep your fresh flowers away from drafts, heat, cold and direct sunlight and avoid over watering. Henry's Florist has the freshest flowers and we guarantee the best quality! With just a minimum of daily up keep your flowers will stay fresh for many days. Enjoy!
Medium light locations are preferred by most green plants. This means light near a sunny window but protected from direct sun. To determine this, place your hand 1 foot above the area you've chosen as their home. You should get a distinct shadow.
Moderately moist soil best; avoid over watering. Always allow a watered plant to drain freely. Never let the pot sit in water.
temperatures found in most homes are acceptable, but moderate locations are preferred. ideally, 70 degree days and 50 to 55 degrees at night.
If plants are kept for extended periods of time, use a house plant fertilizer at the manufacturer's rate and frequency.
