1st in Flowers! has been in the retail florist/gift giving business for nearly fifty years and our Internet operations began in 1995. Our vast experience has taught us many things, including which local florists and vendors will deliver the best quality and value to our customers, what products to offer our customers that will ensure their satisfaction, and how to adapt and respond to our customers’ changing needs.
One of the many appealing features we carry online is our Floral Facts (as seen above). The Flower Meanings section is a valuable tool for a customer who wants to make a memorable impression with their romantic floral gift. For instance, did you know that the calla flower means “magnificent beauty,” or that the pink carnation means “I'll never forget you”? What a lovely thought to add to your personal message! Another helpful suggestion is to browse the information under the Flower Care section. With this information one can view the species name, prime months, available colors and vase life of the flower you have chosen to send, as well as the proper care for the arrangement or boxed gift. Imagine what a thoughtful gesture it would be to pass on this information to the recipient!
Also found above is the section on proper care for plants, where one can look up information on the particular leaf shape, leaf structure, and proper height of a certain plant, and you can even find facts about the origins of the plant. Since plants should last a good deal longer than flowers, it is useful to be able to access a list of common problems and learn how you can help maintain your plant’s health and maintain a long life for your gift.
The fourth section from the top, Flower Articles and Information, has a wealth of knowledge contained in such articles as Flower Power Turns 40, which describes research and studies proving that flowers do communicate peace, beauty and love and promote overall positive emotions in humans. Whether one is just looking for general information, or help to decide on what flower is the best choice for the occasion, this section is just too much fun to pass over!
Lastly on this page is Birth Month Flowers, a remarkably quick and easy reference guide as to which flower belongs to which birth month. Just another way that we here at 1st in Flowers! provide you with the kind of information that will make choosing your special gift so much simpler than choosing from other comparable sites! We hope you enjoy using our compiled information as much as we have enjoyed researching and providing it for you.
