    How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

    Once you have received your flowers, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

    Where you place your flowers can make a difference.

    Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

    Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

    How to maintain a beautiful presentation.

    For vase and basket arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration. When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.

    For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display. Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

    We offer Christmas flower delivery!

    Poplar Creek Floral offers both store pickup and delivery! Call or order online today, and we will send your favorite Christmas gift yet! We recommend placing your order as soon as possible. The sooner, the better. By placing your order early and scheduling your future delivery in advance, you secure your selection.

    Mother's Day

    How far in advance should I order flowers for Mother’s Day?

    We recommend placing your order as soon as possible. The sooner you place your order, the sooner you can secure the flowers you want. When customers place their orders at the last minute, they risk not being able to have the exact arrangement they may desire. This is due to limited supplies and a high order volume during Mother’s Day. As florists fill orders, various flower types begin to run low or go out of stock. This often results in flower substitutions when needing to fill an order in a short time frame after the order has been placed late. When flowers go out of stock, shops are at the mercy of the shipping trucks that will bring in their fresh flower shipments for restocking.

    It’s best not to place yourself in a pickle and provide yourself the security of locking in the flowers you desire as soon as possible.

    Do I order my flowers online or in-person?

    Feel free to come by our shop or place your order at your convenience online.

    Online, you will be able to explore your options, select your favorite flowers, order, submit payment, and set a delivery date for your flowers. After you have chosen your flowers in the ordering process, you will be able to provide any card messages or specific delivery instructions.
