- Floral Design Experiment
We advise you to experiment with varying textures, blooms and herbs to come up with your style niche for your flower shop Vancouver.
- Get Rid Of The lily Stamens
For those who don’t know, stamens are the part of the flower that is pollinated and is found in the centre of the lily flower. When the lily raptures open, remove the pollen grains and then take the stamen from the flower. Make sure it doesn’t touch the lily. Getting rid of the stamens makes the lilies last for long.
- Keep the Foliage Clear Of Water
When arranging the vase, remove the foliage from the blooms and don’t leave any below the waterline. Leaving some foliage below the waterline is detrimental to the flower arrangement and can cause it to wilt.
- Make A Grid
Most florists have a metal grid which is done by placing blooms in a container and constructing a grid by overlapping flower stems and then turning the vase with each flower set at an angle outside section of the vase. Typically, this provides a holder for the flowers, giving them a unified and balanced form. However, this flower arrangement may not work for all. So, if this doesn’t work for you, opt for tape grid.
- Chop Flower Stems While Dipped In Water
For those flowers that are delicate such as peonies and dahlias, it is recommended that you cut the step under the water. This helps in absorption rate and increases their longevity. Make sure the container holding the water is clean to avoid contaminating the flower.
- Put The Orchid Plants On Ice
You don’t have to keep watering your orchid plants, instead, put them on ice. The gradual melting of the ice gives the orchid plants constant water absorption and prevent them from drowning. This is also the perfect way to gauge the water amount absorbed by your orchid plants.
- Open Closed Buds
When opening the buds, first soak the buds in warm water, then in cold water. This is an excellent trick for revealing casing on the open flower bud arrangement.
- Crowning Glory
Your flower shop Vancouver, just like any other flower shops, should keep all secrets of the floral arrangements. The crowning glory is a waxy spray that maintains the floral arrangements fully hydrated. The results are long-lasting plants that can even go for a week.
