Avoid ProFlowers if you care

If you actually care about the person you are sending flowers to, don't use ProFlowers. The flowers are substandard, the customer service department is an oxymoron, and corporate really doesn't care. They will make last minute substitutions to your orders that make you think someone lost their mind in this business. I sent a Christmas arrangement to my son and daughter in law. My son is active duty Navy and had been out at sea. They were not going to be able to make it home for the holidays. Want to know what ProFlowers thought was an appropriate substitution? SYMPATHY LILIES!!! My son thought someone had died while he was at sea! When I contacted the company the response is callous and they apparently don't see anything wrong with this substitution. Only after extensive discussion did they send a replacement arrangement. Contact with the corporate offices got me a promise the the customer service director would call me. Yeah - that didn't happen either. So while this site provides this great write up on ProFlowers, the reality is that if you actually care about the person you are sending flowers to, find some other company to use.

paperwhite care

How do you care for paperwhites once they have finished blooming? Let them dry out and then store for next season? Will they bloom again? Cut folliage at what time? Thanks

Hyacinth Plants

Of all the bulbs I most look forward to seeing once again, come spring, hyacinth plants would certainly be near the top of the list.

Frankly, I like everything about them. Their robust leaves announce spring's return with a confidence I find appealing. But my greatest joy comes from watching the progress made by the emergent flower head. All the hyacinth buds eventually separate from their tight "cones," peeling off one by one in an assertion of their individual rights. And oh! what a fragrance when those buds open. You don't have to be near hyacinth plants to enjoy their heavenly aroma. The gentlest breeze will waft the smell of these fragrant plants across to the landscape to your grateful nostrils.
