If you are able to cut fresh flowers from your own garden, or are fortunate to have a locally grown fresh flower source, you can enjoy the bounty of the summertime flora with little difficulty. However, if you have fresh flowers delivered, or want to send them as a gift, you should be wary of high seasonal temperatures.

The long hot summer is not kind to fresh-cut flowers.

The time fresh-cut flowers spend exposed to high temperatures in the back of a delivery truck is more than enough to deteriorate, or “stress”, the quality of the freshest flowers. UPS, FedEx, and even the local flower shop’s delivery service may leave your perishable fresh flower order at the door if no one is home to accept it. Your gift could sit on the recipient’s doorstep for many hours in high temperatures and direct sun. This kind of exposure, even for just a couple of hours, will ruin the hardiest of flowers (and the impact of your gift).
