100% QUALITY GUARANTEE
Ambience Flowers is responsible for the quality of flowers that you receive. All of our Partner-Farms are recognized worldwide for their high quality and sustain care. It is very important to take the right care of your flowers once received. The customer must be knowledgeable about flower care. In the case, the customer has no knowledge we recommend our Flower Care blog on Ambience Flowers where pictures and descriptions explain what to expect, and how to prep, hydrate and bloom your flowers.
Depending on the type of flowers you order, there can be a substantial visible difference in the appearance of the flowers after they have time to hydrate and bloom.
The 100% Fresh Quality Guarantee pertains to the general quality and freshness of the flower shipment as a whole. Ambience Flowers guarantees that flowers will be delivered fresh-cut, and ready for preparation and hydration in fresh water. All flowers require hydration after shipping, and we request that all customers immediately and carefully prep the flowers, and let them hydrate for 2 hours.
Flowers are a natural product and therefore demonstrate some uniqueness, including spots and variations in color. For this reasons, our 100% Fresh Quality Guarantee does not include the natural variations and imperfections that occur. Ambience Flowers does not guarantee that every stem will be the same and free of imperfections. There may be a few stems that you do not include in your arrangements to create a more consistent display. This is part of the preparation and design process. As you prep your flowers, and trim away the leaves, stems and extra greenery, you will probably toss out a few stems as part of this process. This is what florist does.
It is the customer's responsibility to properly care for flowers. Ambience Flowers is not liable for products mishandled by clients. Each customer must be knowledgeable about flower care. Ambience Flowers recommends that our customers, or a representative, be present for delivery. A signature may or may not be required at the time of delivery. Ambience Flowers is not responsible for lost or stolen packages, damage to the products as a result of being left in inclement weather, FedEx or DHL delays, delays as a result of Customs and Agricultural inspections, or other natural acts.
AMBIENCE FLOWERS CARE TIPS
Ambience Flowers have been delivered directly cut from the farm to your house, now what?
1) Keep fresh flowers away from drafts and extreme temperatures, which can quickly dry out the flowers and cause wilting.
2) If your flowers came in plastic, remove this as soon as possible.
3) Do not place your arrangement near fruit or in the path of cigarette smoke. The ethylene gas is detrimental to many flower types.
4) Avoid placing flower arrangements in windows and other areas with full sun where flowers can wilt due to overheating. Most flowers will last longer under cool conditions.
How To Keep Your Ambience Flowers Looking Fresh
1) Keep your vase filled with water! All flower and foliage stems should be submerged. Freshly Flowers stay fresher, longer when they can get a drink!
2) If your flowers came in a basket or other container with foam, add fresh water every day.
3) Immediately remove dead or wilting leaves and stems from fresh flower arrangements.
4) Watch your water. When it gets cloudy its time to change it out.
Changing The Water In Your Ambience Flowers Arrangement
First, remove any dead or dying flowers from the arrangement.
After carefully removing the good flowers, clean the vase thoroughly with soapy water to remove any bacteria that could cause the fresh flowers to deteriorate even quicker. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.
Replace the water and mix in the flower preservative provided by your florist, according to the instructions on the packet.
For best results, cut stems with a sharp knife at an angle about one to two inches from the bottom. This allows them to better absorb water. Do not use scissors to cut your flowers because they can crush the stems and prevent water absorption.
Place loose stems or wrapped bouquets of fresh flowers in your water mixture as soon as possible.
