Christmas

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

  • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
  • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

COLE'S FLOWERS is located in Middlebury, VT.

I have a few questions, how can I contact COLE'S FLOWERS?

If you have questions regarding the details of your order, delivery, or other needs, please feel free to contact COLE'S FLOWERS at (802) 388-4003. Our associates would be happy to assist you.

Schedule delivery now so you don't have to worry later.

It is to your advantage to place your order in advance. Select the flowers you love and set the delivery date in advance to ensure you can get your mother’s special flowers. During Mother’s Day, we receive a high volume of flower orders.

When you place an order too late and too close to Mother’s Day, you risk having to select a different product or making flower substitutions. This is due to flower supplies running low with many orders to fill. Waiting upon supply trucks after our supplies have dwindled can also be unpredictable.

Secure your flowers and order delivery date by skipping the stress and ordering in advance.

There is no better occasion for sending flowers than the holidays. From January to December there are more occasions than you could imagine giving you an excuse to extend your thoughtfulness to your loved ones. Whether it’s Thanksgiving bouquets, complete with autumn color, Hanukkah with splashes of bright blue and white, or the 4th of July with bursts of red, white and blue, flowers are the perfect solution to any gift.

Considering table decorations or creative centerpiece ideas for Easter, Christmas of Thanksgiving is your best course, allowing your loved one to enjoy the flowers during dinner. This being the focal point of these kinds of holidays, picking a great table centerpiece for the host, cornucopia fruit baskets, contemporary floral vases or baskets of fall flowers is a perfect starting point.

For more party-centric holidays, such as Memorial Day or Halloween, considering less formal flowers arrangements, party decorations and such are more conducive. And if you’re considering flowers for any of the important holidays, such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, you can never go wrong with our floral arrangements with roses as your framework. That’s because roses are always a great, classic way to say 'I love you.'
