?? Why do flowers cost more in Alaska than the lower 48? ??
Fresh flowers arrive from around the world, on a ‘first class’ flight. To maintain freshness, handling properly from farm through shipment, while maintaining the cold-chain that keeps flowers ‘asleep’ through their travels, is a priority. Once shipments arrive to our shop, we have trained processors that carefully handle each flower, cutting the stems and rehydrating them, which ‘wakes’ them up. From this point, your flowers are arranged and carefully hand delivered to your door.
?? How can I make my flowers last long? ??
Once flowers are cut, there extend are some simple steps to life cycle. The first ones begin in our shop. Once you have flowers at home, it is important that you keep the water clear and full. Using a preservative mixed into your water will help fight bacteria, which naturally forms. Keep flowers cool and out of sunlight. Adding humidity by misting frequently helps as does flushing out and adding new water when cloudy. Since flowers draw fresh water up the stem to the flower head, it is important to give stems a fresh cut every 2-3 days. This exposes the membranes of the stem and allow easier water absorption, which is essential to flower longevity.
?? Do different flowers have special meanings? ??
Yes. Flower meanings began in Victorian times, and though they are not adhered to today, many people value the traditions of what they stood for. A common example is the red rose: Love, or yellow rose: Friendship. Most of us know the common meanings like this, but some dig deeper. You can learn more here on our website under ‘The Meaning of Flowers’.
?? Is it true that flower colors have special meanings in some cultures? ??
Yes. For example, in Asian cultures, red is a happy color, where white represents death, and would be inappropriate to send to a business opening. Jewish culture is based around blue and white flowers. Here in Alaska, flowers are greatly appreciated in all colors as they are considered rare for many people, making them a treasured gift or gesture.
?? What flowers last the longest? ??
Tropical flowers have great longevity and with proper care, can last bend 2 weeks. ‘Field’ flowers such as daisies, carnations, chrysanthemums and sunflowers also have a long life span. Quickest to go are bulb flowers, which include tulips, iris daffodils and hyacinth. We make many of our arrangements to feature combinations that have a progressive life cycle, so as one flower blooms out, another may begin…giving longer enjoyment.
