F. A. Q.

Our Flowers and Floral Arrangements

We pride ourselves on using the best available locally grown flowers, fresh cut flowers and flowers in the wholesale market. We do not offer flower arrangements with a guarantee of specific flowers in each arrangement. Instead we offer color palettes using seasonal flowers, greenery, and berries. The photos on our website are for inspiration only and to showcase our style of flower designs that we create and offer for sale. 

The flower industry is too large for us to carry every type of flower. We would rather hand select the most beautiful blooms that we feel confident putting our brand behind rather than offering flowers that are not at their best quality in order to just say we have them available to sell.  

If you have a special request, please contact the NYC flower showroom directly. We are always happy to do our best to accommodate your request if we are able to source the flowers from our vendors. Please note, the more time you give us to find the flowers the better chance of us being able to accommodate your needs for NYC flower delivery in Manhattan. 

Each flower arrangement and hand tied bouquet for flower delivery is skillfully wrapped with our signature grey tissue paper, grey ribbon, and protective cellophane. Hand written and personalized messages can be added during the checkout process. Send the best flowers for delivery in NYC. Our artistic bouquets and vase arrangements filled with fresh flowers are hand delivered from the best florist in New York.

Flower and Plant Care

Flower Arrangements

The best way to keep your flower arrangements fresh is to add room temperature water to your flower arrangement upon flower delivery. Change water daily and cut stems on a diagonal for continued enjoyment and longer lasting flowers. 

Orchid Plant Care

Please give your orchid plants a quarter cup of water or two ice cubes once a week. Place the orchid plant a well-lit room, away from direct sunlight and drafts. When all flowers have bloomed, cut stem one inch above orchid plant leaves, continue watering once a week as directed and place in direct sunlight. The orchid plant may bloom again in the following season. 

Succulents and Cactus Care

The best way to care for your succulents and cacti are to place in bright light and let the soil dry out completely before adding water. Indoors this can be about three weeks for succulents and up to a month for cactus. Do not let any water stand directly on the leaves of these plants.

Myrtle Topiaries

Myrtle topiaries prefer direct sunlight and do best with regular or even daily watering. Misting your plant everyday is also recommended. Good drainage is important. Make sure to keep soil damp but not wet. Topiaries respond well to pruning. Foliage production slows in winter, so most training and shaping occur when plants are actively growing in Spring and Summer. If leaves curl or drop, your plant was dry for too long. Toss it, Myrtle Topiaries rarely survive once they've completely dried out.
