Cut Flower Helpful Tips

There is nothing better than walking into a room with a beautiful display and scents of Fresh Cut Flowers!

Naturally grown flowers have the most beautiful strong scents to them unlike most of the commercially grown varieties because we grow ours for beauty scent and safe to bury your face in where as many of the commercially grown varieties have been genetically modified so they can with stand long distances in travel and in doing so they lose their origin of scent which I feel is half the charm.

 Just think about it! What is the first thing you automatically want to do when you see a beautiful flower?

 SMELL IT!

I know many a florists who have had to quit and become ill due to the continuous exposure to nasty chemicals that are spayed on many of the commercial flowers so make sure you know where your flowers have come from before you dive your face in. Any good florist will be able to tell you where the flowers have come from and if they are natural or sprayed.
