Welcome to our Flower Care created to provide you with simple & helpful techniques & tips to keep your Flower Patch flowers looking beautiful as long as possible!
Frequently Ask Question #1:
If I add Sprite or Pennies to the water of my flowers will they last longer? Cut Flowers require the proper kind and correct amount of nourishment. Floral preservatives are special mixtures of chemicals that have been developed & perfected to prolong the life of flowers. They contain a sugar base to keep the flower’s energy level high, ingredients to inhibit the growth of bacteria and chemicals that lower the pH factor thereby enhancing water uptake. All Sacred Energy flowers are treated with professional floral food from the farm to your front door, Home Remedies such as Sprite & Pennies do not contain all the nourishment our flowers need to live their longest and we strongly discourage their use.
Frequently Ask Question #2:
Should I put my flowers in the refrigerator or freezer when I get home to keep them fresh? Fresh Flowers & Roses should not be placed in either the refrigerator or the freezer! The Refrigerator generally hosts a variety of fruits & vegetables that emit ethylene gases which can shorten the life or even kill your fresh flowers & roses. The Freezer is simply too cold! When fresh flowers & roses are kept at freezing temperatures even for a very short period of time it can result in the discoloration of the flower & premature death. For best results, we recommend all Sacred Energy Flower should be kept in a well ventilated- cool area of your home or office.
