How to Store your Bulbs for the Winter Months

To guarantee that your bulbs make it through the winter, its important to make sure they’re stored correctly. We’ve consulted our expert designers, and compiled a list of tips and tricks to make sure that your bulbs make it to the spring.

  1. To prepare for storage, it’s important to let the bulbs and surrounding soil dry, in a sheltered, frost-free place until the soil comes off the roots and leaves them clean. Making sure that the bulb has dried thoroughly before storing is key.
  2. It is important to make sure that your bulbs are stored somewhere safe, and away from frost or any pesky rodents.
  3. When storing, put a layer of sand, peat moss or even newspaper, on the bottom of the container you are using. Then you can add a layer of your bulbs, however, make sure not to let them touch each other. You can then add a second layer or dry material and continue this process until your container is full or all your bulbs have been stored.
Once you’ve completed this process, make sure to store your container in a safe and memorable place for you to access come the spring.

Exciting News from Fleurs De Villes

If you remember back in 2017 and 2018, Kelly’s had to opportunity to participate in an unbelievable floral design competition; Fleurs De Villes.

This amazing, international bespoke competition challenged florists to get creative as possible and design spectacular attire, using a mannequin, flowers, a florists arsenal of tools and an abundance creativity. In 2017 Kelly’s was proudly awarded the Florist Favourite Award and in 2018 the Fan Favourite Award, both at the Ottawa (Bayshore) Shows. While Fleurs De Villes hasn’t yet returned to Ottawa for their competition, we have received some exciting news. Kelly’s Flowers will be featured on their new website, along with our award-winning competition designs! 
 
The website will highlight florists who participated in the competition, and we look forward to seeing Kelly’s featured. In celebration of this, we hired an amazing photographer by the name is Mackenzie Fournier, to help capture our awesome team.
 
Stay tuned to the Kelly’s website, as well as the Fleurs De Ville website to see us there. In the meantime, here is a sneak peak of our photo shoot and our competition entries.

How to take care of your Fall Mums

Fall Mums are a pretty iconic plant during the autumn months. Our Florists have some tricks in their arsenal in order to make sure that your mums look stunning all season long.

  1. Make sure that your fall mums are getting at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.
  2. Don’t let your mums dry out. This trick is for both indoor and outdoor mums.
  3. Try your best to make sure that you don’t overwater your mums. Soggy soil can prevent them from flowering and cause root rot. What to watch for, is yellowing leaves that turn black and fall off.
  4. It is possible to have annual mums if they are planted in the spring or summer and have ample time to establish a good root system. They can stay in the ground during winter (especially with a layer of mulch for colder areas) if they are cut down to only a few inches above the soil. Potted mums should be brought inside and watered to just slightly moist during winter dormancy.
  5. Your final tip is that you should be sure to deadhead old blooms frequently. This help encourages new growth.

We hope you enjoy your amazing fall mums this season!

Graduates!

For a lot of us, this time of year revolves around two things; proms and graduations. While we are all adjusting to a new normal and ceremonies have been postponed, we still want to help you celebrate these milestones!
 
Instead of corsages or boutonnieres, our designers are ready to help you design a custom bouquet, based on colour preferences, for the special graduate in your life.
