Harmons Floral Food – What is it?

February 10, 2013

Have you ever wondered what that stuff really does in the little black packet that comes with bouquets you buy in the Harmons floral departments? Cindy, Harmons Flower Buyer, explains what it is and how it helps keep your flowers lasting longer.

The plan food packets come with bouquet arrangements in all of the stores. All of the arrangements in vases and containers, and all of the special orders for delivery, already have the plant food in the water. Don’t hesitate to ask your Harmons floral associate for an extra packet when you purchase a bouquet or arrangement to help keep your flowers fresher longer.

The plant food supplement is an important PH balancer and helps restore the plant’s equilibrium to where it was when it was still a plant. It slows down the aging process and prevents the water in the vase from being contaminated by the natural organisms created when the stems deteriorate.

What about home solutions, like clear soda? It works because it has some sugar content, but it doesn’t keep the PH balance at the right spot or keep the water from becoming contaminated. Plus, it is more expensive than the plant food that comes with your bouquet.

If you ever have any questions on floral care, anyone at the Harmons Floral Design Center would love to talk flowers with you. Give them a call at 801-957-8477, or ask your floral manager at any Harmons store location.

Floral Favorites for the Holidays

December 12, 2012

Pam, Floral Manager

My name is Pam and I work at our South Jordan store in the lovely floral dept. I am excited for Christmas and all the festivities it brings. I love to see the decorations everywhere. We have a great selection of decorating items to help you bring the holiday spirit into your home. Starting with locally grown poinsettias, we have a variety of sizes and price ranges starting from simple and plain to large and fully decorated with bows and sparkles. We also have wreaths to hang outside on your house or for the remembrance of a loved one with a wreath stand.

There are also small living trees to enjoy now and plant later in the spring.

Come in and see our large selection of candles that help to bring the scents of the holidays into your favorite rooms. They are soy based which is a renewable source, and they burn clean with no ghosting and clean up with soap and water.

So start your holidays off right with a stop in to see us at the floral department of your favorite Harmons store.
