Preservation FAQ

 Q: What is the process for having flowers preserved?

A: Prior to your event, please contact us for an in-take form and to book a spot for your preservation. You will be given instructions on how to care for your blooms prior to bringing them in. We prefer to have fresh flowers brought in no more than 2-3 days after your event to ensure quality is maintained. If your blooms are already dried, they can be brought in at any time.

Q: Do you have a minimum?

A: We do not have a minimum for preservation. 

Q: Can we preserve florals that are several years old and already dried?

A: We can absolutely work with pre-dried botanicals that have aged as long as they are not falling apart or moldy. Resin has a way of breathing new life into dated flowers.

Q: Do you offer a discount for multiple pieces?

A: Preservation work is very time consuming and each piece is meticulously hand crafted for this reason we do not offer volume discounts. 

Q: What is your time line? When can I expect my pieces to be ready?

A: We are currently working with a 4-6 month ETA. Often projects will be completed sooner in our quieter months (Jan-May) But you can expect delays in the fall and winter as we work through our own busy wedding and retail season. Shadowboxes are usually completed within 3 months. If your botanicals are already dried, you can expect an even quicker turn around. If you require your pieces rushed for a special occasion, please speak with us at the time of in-take.

Q: I didn't save any of my flowers but wish I could do this?

A: We've got you! We can recreate your florals for you, preserve them and make you something beautiful as if you had gone through this process the first time!

Q: Can I just show up with my flowers?

A: We ask that you contact us ahead so we can have all materials prepped and ready to ensure the best possible outcome for your blooms.

*Currently we are only make shadow boxes and resin pieces, we DO NOT press flowers*

"The flowers for my daughter wedding were nothing short of gorgeous. Robin captured the vision that the bride wanted perfectly. The colours, textures, variety were superb. I highly highly recommend Grow & Bloom for your wedding flowers or any flower needs."

Robin did an excellent job with our wedding floral preservation! The shadow box turned out better than I had imagined. She communicated with me along the way and included specific parts that I wanted from my wedding bouquet. The store is also well curated and the staff are all friendly and helpful!

"Grow and Bloom went above and beyond for our wedding florals! We honestly couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out. I have trouble visualizing things but I gave some colour options and Robin and her team ran with it to create the wedding flowers of our dreams. Thank you so much again!"
