Be Wary of Sending Fresh Cut Flowers in Hot Summer Temperatures
If you are able to cut fresh flowers from your own garden, or if you are fortunate to have a locally grown fresh flower source, you can relax and enjoy the floral bounty of summer with little difficulty. But if you must have fresh flowers delivered or sent, you should be wary of high seasonal temperatures.
The long hot summer is not kind to fresh cut flowers
If you have ever received a delivery of fresh flowers, you are aware they can be “stressed” as a result of shipping and handling, and should be immediately placed in water so they “can revive in 8 – 12 hours”, and they “should” attain their full blooms “over the next few days”, but only if “the enclosed care instructions” are followed.
Well, in addition to these conditions, you should also be aware of how they will be delivered. The time spent exposed to high temperatures in the back of a delivery truck or van is more than enough to deteriorate the quality of the freshest flowers. UPS, FedEx, and even the local florist shop’s delivery service may leave your perishable fresh flower order at the door if no one is present to accept it. A gift could sit on the recipient’s doorstep for many hours in high temperatures and direct sun. This kind of exposure, even for just a couple of hours, will ruin the hardiest of flowers.
