How to Care For Your Poinsettia To Get The Most Out Of It

Want to get the most out of your poinsettias this holiday season? Here are some great tips from Blumz to make sure you do! 

Pick a healthy plant. The longevity of a poinsettia plant can be dependent on its purchased condition. Select a plant that has bright green leaves and colorful sturdy bracts. After returning home with the plant, remove its protective covering and place in a location that receives indirect sunlight. 

Water the plant regularly. Practicing proper watering techniques is important to the survival of all plants.  Poinsettias should be watered when the plant’s soil is dry. A great way to water it is to take the plant to the sink, remove the foil wrapping and add water to the soil. The foil wrapping can be replaced after the excess water has drained from the plant. The plant can also be placed in a saucer and the foil wrapping can be punctured at the bottom of the plant to allow drainage.

Avoid direct sunlight. Because poinsettias are tropical plants, they do require some sunlight. But, placing the plant in direct sunlight can cause damage to the plant’s leaves. Extreme low or high temperatures and drafts should also be avoided.

BE AWARE: The belief that poinsettias are poisonous is a common misconception, according to a company spokesperson. A number of organizations, including Ohio State University, have documented that poinsettias are non-toxic and safe to be in homes where children and pets reside. As with many plants, poinsettias are not meant for ingestion and may cause discomfort if consumed.

Happy National Rose Month!!!

Every June the nation celebrates National Rose Month.  The tradition of celebrating rose month in June was started by Ronald Reagan in 1986 when he named the rose the national floral emblem of the United States.

Roses are one of the most popular flowers to send or receive because they are beautiful, fragrant and come in 100's of different varieties and colors.  Blumz by JRDesigns carries a large selection of roses in our coolers all year round but every June we amp it up and stock them full of the freshest roses around.  Here is a look at what is in our cooler this week. If you haven't sent flowers in awhile now is the time, our roses are in full bloom!

Easter Lilies and Your Pets

This year we will celebrate Easter on Sunday, April 16th. For many of us it is a special day to spend with friends and family eating, laughing, and celebrating. It's also a great time to purchase an Easter lily!  In fact, lilies make the perfect hostess gift!   Blumz carries a wide selection of everyone's favorite Easter plant but before you grab a lily, you need to make sure that it is safe for your pets!

We did the research for you and we are happy to say that as long as you do not have a feline the lilies are fine! But, if you have a kitty you might want to rethink your choice.  Lilies are safe for all animals except for cats. This is the offical statement form the Society of American Florists:

"The National Animal Poison Control Center says certain types of lilies can cause renal failure in cats that have ingested any part of the lily. SAF recommends keeping lilies out of the reach of cats. It is important to note that lilies do not pose a problem for other pets or humans".

So, if you or the person you are purchasing a lily for has a cat its time to rethink your purchase! 
Give us a call at (248) 398-5130 / (313) 964-5777 or visit our website to order something special today!
