get well flowers

When someone we love is under the weather, we definitely want to cheer them up. Studies have shown that receiving flowers has an instant effect on our well-being and happiness, making floral bouquets a perfect choice to send to someone who is ill. Whether your friend or family member is in the hospital or sick at home, choosing beautiful plants and flowers from Gordon Boswell Flowers is a guaranteed way to make them smile.

Which flowers are right to send? If your loved one is at home, virtually any florals are appropriate, but you may wish to ask the experts as to which blooms have the least scent. If someone is not feeling well, an overwhelming fragrance may be offensive, so stay away from highly aromatic flowers – instead, choose gerbera daisies, tulips or sunflowers. They are not only low fragrance but are cheerful and easy to care for.  Continue reading
