Plant & Flower Care

After receiving a wonderful gift of flowers or plants, we often find ourselves wondering how to care for them.

This is the place for you!

Plant Basket Care:

Eurogarden baskets and Planters come in all different shapes and sizes & they make wonderful gifts!

Plant baskets will have 2 or more separate plants chosen for texture, color and beauty. Each plant will need to be cared for separately. Individual plants are in plastic pots with deep plastic liners, to allow for individual watering without removing them from the basket. To avoid water damage on furniture, water the basket at the sink, and remove the moss from the plants to insure each is receiving the proper water without overflow.

Never let a plant remain in standing water, or become too dry. The plants in your basket will not necessarily dry out at the same time, so each one will need to be checked individually about 2 or 3 times a week. Water when the soil surface has dried out slightly.

Blooming plants need bright, indirect sunlight; green plants can have less. Use a balanced fertilizer once a month or dilute and use a weak solution at every watering. Air circulation is important- but a cold draft or hot air from a heat source is stressful to all plants.

Put protective material under arrangements to avoid any damage from moisture.

Orchid Care:

Caring for an orchid can be a little intimidating, but we promise that it is much easier than you anticipate!

Water your orchid every 10-15 days. When potting medium feels nearly dry, water thoroughly for 10-15 seconds on each side of the plant while avoiding crown and leaves.

Drip dry before returning into your decorative pot.

Don’t allow the medium to be constantly wet or allow the plant to sit in standing water.

Your plant will thrive best in medium to bright light indoors in your home or office and with temperatures around 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid extreme temperatures and drafts.

There is no need to fertilize your Orchid in order to enjoy the first set of blooms. After the first set fall off, then fertilize monthly and continue to care regularly for your plant. stems will regrow and you will be able to enjoy another season of blooms.

Rose care:

If you have received these flowers as a wrapped bouquet or in a box, you must recut each stem.

fill a clean vase with warm water and floral preservative (if available). Use a sharp knife and cut approximately 1/2″ off each stem at a very steep angle. Immediately place the flower into the vase.

Fill the container full of fresh water everyday.

When available, we love to use Garden roses. They are more fragrant, fuller and have much more character than their more civilized cultivated cousins. The outer guard petals and open fragile nature are part of their charm. Please appreciate their unique beauty and romantic qualities. Most fresh cut flowers last from 2-5 days with proper care. Never place arrangements in direct sun or near a heating vent.

Recut stems in 3-4 days and place in clean water.

If a rose has wilted, it is not properly taking up fresh water. Repeat the cutting process, and place the rose in hot (not scalding) fresh water in a deep vase. You may also cut the stem and submerge the entire rose in a tub or sink where it will lay flat for 2 hours.

Put protective material under arrangement to avoid any damage from moisture.
