Ideal Delivery Date
When ordering gerbera daisies for an event, the most important thing to consider is timing. As these flowers come ready to go, you want to make sure that they have plenty of time to hydrate before being used. To ensure this happens, we suggest selecting a delivery date that is two days prior to your event date. For instance, if your event is on Saturday, then the recommended delivery date would be Thursday. This will allow the flowers ample time to become fully hydrated so that you can work with them as desired on the day of your occasion. With proper planning and timely delivery, you can create stunning arrangements with long-lasting gerbera daisies!
How to Care for Gerbera Daisies
1. Upon arrival, gather your buckets or vases and fill them up with four inches of fresh, cool water. If flower food is available, follow package directions and add to water.
2. Cut any straps or ties and remove the flowers from the box. Any netting or protective packaging, such as plastic or paper, can also be removed at this time. The gerbera daisies may come with a straw, as they are used to keep the stems straight by offsetting the daisy's natural droop. You can choose to remove the straws now or keep them on until ready to arrange.
3. Use sharp floral shears or scissors to cut the stems at a diagonal. We recommend cutting about an inch off of each stem. After you trim the stems, place immediately into your prepared buckets or vases but make sure to not overcrowd the flowers.
Helpful Tips for Long-lasting Flowers
Gerbera daisies are known for their long vase life, making them an excellent choice for events or occasions that require flowers to stay fresh and beautiful for extended periods. With proper care, these vibrant blooms will continue to brighten your space and bring joy long after your event has ended.
Gerbera daisies will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival so make sure you keep an eye on the water level. To prevent premature wilting, make sure to change the water every 2-3 days. The color of the water will be an indicator of when to add fresh water.
Keep gerberas away from fruits, vegetables and/or plants that produce ethylene gas. Ethylene in the surrounding area could cause your gerberas to mature faster. And, of course, keep flowers away from direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.
