reflections on Mother's Day

Reflections: Daughter champions Mother's Day

plan ahead

Don't forget the moms and the grads in your life this month. A gift of flowers never goes out of style. And mark your calendar for these upcoming dates:

Wednesday, May 1,
May Day:
Adorn neighbors’ doors with tiny posies. Young ones especially love ringing the doorbell and hiding as these treats are discovered.

Sunday, May 5,
Cinco de Mayo:
Bold flowers in green, white and red – the colors of the Mexican flag – make great accompaniments for a celebration.

Sunday, May 12,
Mother’s Day:
Did you know white carnations were the original flower associated with Mother’s Day in the early 20th century? Today, a wide variety of colorful blooms are customer favorites.

Monday, May 27,
Memorial Day:
Honor our military heroes and loved ones who have gone before us with beautiful graveside blooms. Red is the traditional color of Memorial Day, for the poppies referenced in John McCrae’s 1915 poem honoring the war dead, “In Flanders Fields.”


monthly tip

Properly mixing flower food:
The specially formulated flower food that you bring home in those tiny, suger-packet-sized envelopes is an important ingredient for keeping vibrant, long-lasting flowers. It contains nutrients for the flowers, a bactericide to keep the water clear, and an acidifier to help the flowers “drink” the water.
 
For best results:

  • Use lukewarm water (tap is OK).
  • Mix in a clean pitcher/container.
  • Measure the recommended amount of water. The right ratio is important because too much or too little food can actually reduce flowers’ vase lives.

Use freshly mixed flower-food solution to replace the water in your floral arrangements every two to three days. And use it from the start if you’re arranging your own cash-and-carry bouquets.
