Ever wonder how to shop for gerbera daisies? How do you tell if they are fresh or not? At Beautiful Blooms by Jen, we pride ourselves in only selling the freshest of the fresh. We love when customers call and tell us how happy they are because their arrangement lasted for weeks! We found these pictures from Gerber Specialists, Holstein Flowers, that demonstrate what to buy and not buy.
This is what a gerbera daisy should look like. The key is looking at the eye, right around the black circle in the center.
This picture shows that shows the next stage. Still ok to buy and will still last a long time. Notice how more yellow is starting to show.
The yellow is still close to the center, so this is still a good gerb to purchase.
This is an example of a gerbera daisy that you should not purchase... See all the yellow around the eye? This gerbera would not last very long.
Here they are all together!
We hope you learned the difference on what to purchase and not purchase. We’ll see you at Beautiful Blooms by Jen to buy fresh ones! If you ever want a specific color, please give us a call the day before and we can get in your color for the next day.
