I, d better tell you all a little about my self and ill warn you , some one out there might want to make it into a florists soap opera .
So obviously my name is Liz , I ve been a florist for a very long time well I bought my first florist shop when my son was 11 ish , he is now 30 and I trained a few years before that too .
My first shop was Gerts florist in Honley i bought it with all its trimmings for £25,000 , it was quaint and spooky at times , there was definately a ghost in the cellar type shop which was situated under Stylish Thoughts Hairdresser at the bottom of Church street.
When you first start out in business there is obviously teething problem , ill be honest with you there still happening now , the colour of my hair really gets me out of scrapes and did several times over the years .
On reflection it was when i over dosed the flowers on flower food !!! mmm I bet your thinking how on earth did you manage that ?? quite easily.
You seen I bought a large tub of liquidized flower food which had a pump , so i merrily gave each flower vase a large dose of flower food , but yes you guessed it not the right quantity of water , consequencing in flowers been totally hung over and died.
Put yourself in the scene … Monday morning opens the door to see very sad looking flowers ahhhhhhh.
My theory is and has been from that day onwards …….. Bleach your vase , fresh clean water cut stems on a angle and remove leaves , pop in your vase and enjoy ………NO FLOWER FOOD NEEDED
