Christmas

How far in advance should I order flowers for Christmas?

We recommend placing your order for Christmas as soon as possible. You can never place your order too early. By selecting your flowers early and placing a delivery for your anticipated date, you secure the flowers of your choice and better ensure their delivery. When the flower shops enter high-volume order periods closer to Christmas, flower supplies become limited.

The later your order is placed, the riskier your chances are to receive the exact florals you desire. When the flower shops enter high-volume order periods closer to Christmas, flower supplies become limited. The shops then rely on shipping services to deliver their fresh flowers they are needing to restock, which at times can be unpredictable, especially during the holiday season. Late orders can result in the substitutions of some flowers to fill an order.

Shop smart this season and save yourself the stress by placing your order as soon as possible.

Do I order my flowers online or in-person?

Whatever works best for you. We offer both in-store and online ordering options for your convenience.

For online orders, easily peruse our flower selection, choose the arrangement of your desires, order, pay, and set a delivery date for your flowers. If you are providing a special Christmas gift, you will be able to provide your special card message and delivery instructions, after you have selected the flowers of your choice.

If you would like to place your order in-person at GARTZKE'S FLORAL AND GIFTS, our associates would be happy to speak with you and assist you. While you’re with us, we would be glad to answer any questions you may have.

If you are unable to travel to the shop and you have questions regarding the details of your order or other needs, please feel free to contact us at (507) 526-3838.

Valentine's Day

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

Now that you have your stunning flowers, you would like to preserve their beautiful state for as long as possible. Below we have provided some fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic, you will need to remove the plastic wrapping as soon as possible. This allows for your flowers to breathe. Then provide fresh water for your flowers as soon as possible.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These factors can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Most flowers last longer under cooler and controlled conditions. Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or cigarette smoke. Ethylene gas can reduce the life of your flowers and be detrimental to their lifespan.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

  • Keep vase arrangements filled with fresh water. This allows the plants to drink up the water they need for proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we suggest providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • Remember to switch out any cloudy water. You will want to fully clean the inside of your vase with soap and water, thoroughly rinse, and then refill the vase with new water. This will help remove any bacteria that could possibly harm your flowers and cause them to deteriorate more quickly.
  • As you notice leaves or stems wilting, remove the strongly wilted contents. This will help your flowers maintain a fresh and appealing appearance.
  • To help your flowers to maintain proper hydration, use a sharp knife to cut your stems. Cut the stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom. This will help the flowers to absorb water. It is discouraged to use scissors to cut the flower stems. Scissors can crush the stems, preventing proper water absorption.
