The second card introduced this month’s shipment- Gerbera Daisies!

BloomsyBox-March-2016-Card4

From the info card: “Bright and beautiful, Gerber are simple but gorgeous. We chose Gerbera daisies this month because we figured we all need a little reminder to be positive.”

BloomsyBox-March-2016-Secure

To keep the flowers from bouncing around in the box during transit, they were secured to the base with a plastic cable tie.

BloomsyBox-March-2016-Cover

Each bloom was protected by a mesh hood and plastic stem cover.

BloomsyBox-March-2016-Food

Inside the brown paper was a packet of flower food.

BloomsyBox-March-2016-Care

On the side of the box, I found care instructions.

BloomsyBox-March-2016-Assembly

I trimmed the stems, arranged them in a vase, and added water and plant food.

The flowers were lovely!

Most of the flowers arrived in pristine condition (one or two were very slightly bruised), but the quality was far better than I’m able to find in my local shops.

I love the vibrant colors. They smelled great, too!

The following day, the flowers had opened up, and the bouquet was even more beautiful!

On day 3, I refreshed the water.

As of day 4, the flowers still looked pretty good. Here’s a shot of them 4 days in:

I had to remove a a couple that started to look a little wilty, but most of the blooms were still in good shape.

The Verdict: Freshly cut flowers are one of my favorite small luxuries, and I’m absolutely in love with my BloomsyBox Gerbera Daisies! They were packed with great care, arrived very fresh, and are so beautiful. In terms of value, I received 24 Gerbera stems from BloomsyBox for $48.99. To receive the same thing from 1-800 Flowers, I’d need to pay $69.98. I’m sure I could buy flowers for less at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s, but I’ve had mixed luck with the quality of the flowers available at my local grocery stores (and I find I always seem to knock them around and bruise them on the way home).

What do you think of BloomsyBox?

  1. Liz, I was told to always trim the stems everyday & to change the water in your vase everyday. And you can add alittle sugar, lemon lime soda or an asprian even if your don’t have any more of the plant food that usually comes with a bouquet of fresh flowers. If you do this it can make the flowers last up to about 2 weeks. Also they say to trim any leafs that are going to be soaking in your vase water. Because it can start growing bacteria which will end up making the flowers die a lot faster. I have done thus with Roses & it does really work. It may take you some time but I think it;s worth it.

    • Thanks so much for the tips! 🙂

  2. You should keep the straws on the stems. They are there because Gerbers droop really easily. That’s what we told people when I worked at a flower shop.

  3. Just wanted to point out that you can get flowers from more than the grocery store and even TJ’s.
    There are farmer markets and local farm flower shares where you can support even more locally and i’m fairly sure aren’t this expensive. Plus talk about fresh!
    I’m actually considering getting a flower share from my local CSA for mother’s day this year. We actually got one of their bouquets and it was a beauty, I don’t know how much it was cause it was a gift for our food share being late(which only happened the once).

  4. Just wondering: anyplace where you can tell them if you (or a recipient) is allergic to certain flowers?

  5. I like this! Yes, you could get some not as pretty cheaper from your local grocery store, but I agree that the quality isn’t as good with a grocery store as these. This is also good, I feel, as a gift for a parent, friend, shut in, or an older relative out of state.?

  6. They are so pretty! That vase is perfect for them as well.
