Field of Flowers to Open a New Fresh Flower Market in South Miami-Dade

We opened our current store at 8803 SW 129th Street in South Miami-Dade about three years ago.  From that location we have been delivering our products to more and more grateful recipients throughout central and southern Miami-Dade.   However, due to the store’s small size, we haven’t been able to provide to walk-in shoppers the same broad and deep assortment of merchandise that we offer at our Davie and Boca Raton markets.   That will soon change!   By mid-November we will open our new market in the Colonial Palms Plaza at US 1 and SW 136th Street, across from The Falls.  A great team of people has been hard at work designing the next Field of Flowers location, which will once again be “Like no other flower market on Earth”.  We’ll keep you informed about our progress.  The South Miami-Dade Field of Flowers key professionals are:

Donn Kim Flipse– Site Team Leader, 4th generation South Florida florist, 12 years with FOF

Rosario Silveira– Design Team Leader, 25 years as a florist, 3 years with FOF

PJ Neidhart– Major Accounts Manager, 20 years in the flower business, 2 years with Field of Flowers

Fall Arrangements designed by Field of Flowers

These autumn masterpieces were designed by our creative designers at Field of Flowers.  Flowing with sunflowers, orange lilies, yellow roses, calla lilies and other fresh cut stems, these arrangements are sentiments of the Fall Season.

The accenting of the miniature squash and the adorable tiny pumpkins show the beauty of the changing seasons. We’ve added autumn leaves to the centerpieces for that special finishing touch.

Facts about Hydrangea Plants

Blue Hydrangea Gift Plant

Although most Hydrangeas bloom in summer and fall, a few Hydrangeas have developed the ability to set new bloom buds in the spring after the old ones have been pruned off or damaged.

Hydrangeas are easy to grow in well-drained soil, which should contain plenty of organic matter.

Hydrangeas can grow in full sun if they are watered well, but will bloom more freely in partial shade.

Hydrangea plants grow in a wide variety of soils but prefer fairly rich moist soil.

A general-purpose fertilizer, such as 10-10-10 applied at a rate of 2 cups per 100 square feet in March, May and July is suggested.

White blooms will always be white, while the blue or pink can be controlled by the pH of the soil (the closer to a balanced pH of 6.5, the lighter the color).

Hydrangeas need plenty of water, so plan to water thoroughly once per week or more frequently.

Prune only the stems that produced this year’s flowers; otherwise you will not have blooms next year.

Reminder, Field of Flowers will be having their annual Hydrangea Celebration from Sat 9/1 –  Sat 9/22 at the Davie & Boca Raton locations. Stop by to win prizes & take advantage of our sale, SAVE 20% OFF all Designer Hydrangea Arrangements and Bunches!

Wife Appreciation Day – Sunday, September 16

This day was created so that husbands and partners alike can be encouraged to recognize the level of commitment and dedication their wife exudes on a daily basis.  Showing your appreciation on this day is much different than days such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day because it comes unexpected.  Surprising her with her favorite bunch of flowers or a beautiful floral arrangement is a great way to show how much you take into consideration all she does to enhance your life together.

 Happy Wife Appreciation Day!

Caring for your fresh cut Hydrangea stems…

Dazzling Hydrangea

First you must prepare your water.  Hydrangeas love cold weather so have a bucket or vase of cold water ready (you may want to add some ice cubes).  The water level should be high enough to cover the entire stem of the Hydrangeas.

Make sure to also mix in your packet of flower food!

Cut the bottom of the Hydrangea stems using either a sharp knife or scissors.

Hydrangeas have a woody stem, making it difficult for them to absorb water.  To help with their water absorption use a tiny sewing needle to pierce a few holes in the hydrangeas stem.

Place the hydrangeas into the water, making sure the entire stem in submerged. Soak the flowers for 4-6 hours prior to using them.

Fill your favorite vase with clean water (preferably cold) and flower food.

Arrange the pre-conditioned hydrangeas in your favorite vase and enjoy the blooms.

Cut the hydrangea’s stem every 2-3 days to ensure that the bottom of the stem is not blocked by any naturally occurring substance or air.

Reminder, Field of Flowers will be having their annual Hydrangea Celebration from Sat 9/1 – Sat 9/22 at the Davie & Boca Raton locations. Stop by to win prizes & take advantage of our sale, SAVE 20% OFF all Designer Hydrangea Arrangements and Bunches!
