At Kelly’s, we are always trying our best to help the Planet. Everyday, we do things like recycle, compost our scraps, re-use or re-purpose materials for displays and decorations for the shop. Plus, once a year, during the month of April, we bring back our ever popular Vase Exchange. You bring in your old vases in exchange for some tulips. Do you have any old vases you’re not currently using? Bring them in. We would love to re-purpose them. Start cleaning your cupboards now because drops offs start April 1st.

Bohemian Dried Floral Workshop
Caring for Your Roses
This time of year we love getting all kinds of gorgeous roses in the cooler. Which means that when you take them home we want to make sure you enjoy them for as long as possible. That is why our designers have compiled a list of their favourite tricks to keep your roses thriving and gorgeous.
Tip 1: Remove the water picks. When receiving roses in a bouquet, we make sure to individually water pick each of the stems so that they stay hydrated on the way home. Once they have arrived at their destination, make sure to carefully remove the water picks before putting them into a vase with water and the provided preservative.
Tip 2: Temperature is key. In transportation especially, making sure your flowers don’t get too cold is important to ensuring they arrive at their destination safely. To do this, avoid leaving them in a cold space. That way they don’t freeze.
Tip 3: Give your stems a trim. Once your roses have arrived at their destination, it’s important to get them into water. However, before you do that make sure to give the stems a bit of a trim. This will allow the nutrients in the water to flow through the stems correctly and feed the flower properly. When giving them their trim, carefully use a sharp knife and cut an inch from the bottom of the stem, preferably while holding it under water.
Tip 4: Keep them hydrated. Its important to remember to check on the amount of water you have in your vase to ensure that your flowers don’t dry out. Its ideal to water your flowers daily to keep them thriving and lasting the longest.
