It is with great excitement that we announce the launch of Flowers For Everyone, Cape Town’s new online florist. Our motto is simple; top quality at the best prices. Gone are the days of overcharging people for flowers, these beauties belong in everyone’s life.
University research shows nature provides us with a simple way to improve emotional health – flowers. The presence of flowers gives you a greater life satisfaction and triggers your happy emotions, all to a greater extent that has previously been considered. Flowers also make intimate connections, and are a symbol for sharing.
“What’s most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way,” said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher of a study on the subject.
The results of a ten-month study show that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods. A team of researchers concluded that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness. All study participants expressed “true” or “excited” smiles upon receiving flowers, demonstrating extraordinary delight and gratitude. This reaction was universal across all demographic groups.
Flowers truly are extraordinary in having a long-term positive effect on moods. Specifically, study participants reported feeling less depressed, anxious and agitated after receiving flowers, and demonstrated a higher sense of enjoyment and life satisfaction.
“Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy,” said Dr. Haviland-Jones. “Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well-being.”
Our supplier is a leading expert in the growing and selling of cut flowers for over 40 years. They are truly masters of their craft. Not only are our flowers lovingly hand-picked, so are the passionate botanists overseeing the process, with substantial practical experience in the cultivation and care of flowers.
Flowers are grown in state-of-the-art greenhouses, with the latest high tech computerized irrigation, ventilation and warming systems. This creates the most ideal growing environment possible.
The flowers are harvested daily throughout the year, at precisely the right moment to ensure optimal freshness. Immediately after being harvested, flowers are placed in clean, treated water and kept in an atmosphere of 5 degrees Celsius – scientifically proven to be the optimal temperature to ensure maximum vase life.
Their final trip from the farm is done in temperature controlled vehicles, enjoying the scenery of Cape Town go by, relaxing with their stems cooling in fresh water.
No longer should flowers be thought of as something you only send to others, we also encourage you to spoil yourself with our beautiful bouquets.
Let’s see the Mother City bloom with joy!
