A Tonic Blooms original, The Sidekick Farmboy is a front-facing, one-of-a-kind, farm-style bouquet featuring a mix of seasonal neutral flowers wrapped in our signature denim. No two are alike - that’s the beauty of The Farmboy!
If some of the blooms are still budding, that’s because we send only the freshest farm-cut flowers available. This means that you can enjoy your Farmboy for as long as possible!
Your Farmboy is safely wrapped in a hydration pack inside the denim and packaged in our signature carrying carton, keeping it fresh until you put it in a vase. See our recommended instructions below to best care for your Farmboy.
To maximize the life of your Farmboy:
Unwrap the denim and remove the hydration pack.
Guard petals (slightly blemished or discoloured outer petals) on the roses are intentionally left on as they protect the bloom during transit. They can be easily removed, if you wish, though we often prefer to leave them intact as they add character and make the rose open nicer!
Remove any leaves or foliage that would be below the waterline to avoid contaminating the water.
Fill a clean vase with room temperature water and add a sprinkle of the provided flower food. Hang onto the package for future waterings.
Trim the stems for best water absorption, remove the elastic and place flowers in the vase.
Finally, give your Farmboy a little “zhuzh” in the vase so it looks its absolute best!
Change/add fresh water daily, adding a sprinkle of flower food each time to prolong the life of your Farmboy.
Fresh flowers enjoy natural light and to be in a cool, dry environment, just keep them away from direct sunlight and heat sources (like an oven or radiator). Summer heat note: Totally bring your flowers outside to accent your picnic or patio barbecues! Don't forget to bring the flowers back inside to keep cool - humidity and direct sunlight will wilt your bouquet.
Reminder! This hand tied bouquet features a mix of different flowers, some of which will bloom faster than others and at different times. Remove stems as they expire to keep others blooming bright!
