Happy Friday! We have dozens of gorgeous Gerberas to choose from at Skyline Flower Growers in regular and mini sizes. Here's a look at one of our newer ones called "Shimmer." Do you know what can help Gerberas come back alive? It's easy, just add a touch of bleach and you'll be amazed at what a difference it makes. It can make a floppy Gerbera bloom again.

The countdown is on to Valentine's! The holiday of love is our second biggest holiday at Skyline Flower Growers. Wondering which flowers to get your loved one? This is a good choice-- RANUNCULUS.
We are currently cutting them in all sorts of colors. They look so delicate. In case you missed a recent posting, in the language of flowers they mean "I am dazzled by your charms."

Another great thing about Skyline, is that we are family owned. We are a 4th generation Flower Grower/Shipper/Wholesaler with locations in California and Washington. Here at Skyline our passion is flowers! Backed by more than 60 years of growing experience, we strive to produce the finest blooms and greens in the market. Our attention to detail and excellent customer service is beyond compare.
There are three locations in California where we grow our flowers, totaling more than three million square feet of state-of-the-art greenhouses, shade houses and open field production. Our nurseries are located in Oxnard, Camarillo and Nipomo. We have chosen these locations for their cool coastal breezes and moderate temperatures which provide some of the best flower growing conditions in America. Skyline also maintains and operates two wholesale distribution centers in Seattle and Spokane, Washington.

Happy Friday! We are cutting good numbers today of French Tulips (that's what's pictured here) as well as Regular Tulips on one of our California farms. We've been sharing some good information about Tulips on our blog.
Thursday, January 22, 2015
They're as fresh as you can get, straight from the farm. While we do grow some of our flowers year round such as Ranunculus, Dahlias and Gerberas and we're known for that, these gorgeous French Tulips are only grown at Skyline Flower Growers for a short period.
We also grow several different types of Tulips including Regular, Peony, Renown Unique and Parrot. The Tulips tend to keep growing after they are cut. The blooms gravitate towards light and warmth so their stems tend to grow towards that.
As far as French Tulips, they are larger than Regular Tulips. Their average bloom size is between 2-3 inches and an average stem length of 22 inches. If you're wondering what colors we have, we do grow lots of different colors. Today, we are cutting them in pink, red, yellow and white.
Do you want them standing up in your vase or flopping to the side? We've talked about this before and will have a video showing you how to get the desired look in your vase. That will be posted in the near future.

Good morning! Here's a look at one of our Ranunculus. Currently, we are cutting them in white, yellow, red, light pink, dark pink as well as orange. We do grow these flowers year round which makes us unique.
If you're wondering about the meaning of this flower, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aX0tEEoV2vc. It's good information to keep in mind especially since Valentine's is quickly approaching.

Good morning! We have some incredible Freesia available at Skyline Flower Growers. If you're wondering what colors: dark pink, lavender, light pink, red, white and yellow. Ask your Sales Representative for availability.
They have an amazing fragrance. It's also the 7th wedding anniversary flower. In the language of flowers, Freesia is said to symbolize innocence and friendship.
Monday, January 19, 2015
It's always a customer favorite! We are now cutting French Tulips in pink, yellow, red, light orange and peach. Contact your Sales Representative to make sure you don't miss out on these beauties.
Our flower experts at Skyline recommend cutting your French Tulips with the sleeve on the flowers and putting them in a vase if you want your flowers to stand up straight in the vase. However, if you prefer them bending down then they say go ahead and take off the sleeve before cutting them. It's something to keep in mind. We'll show you the difference in a future blog.

Happy Friday friends! Today, we want to share with you a picture of a simple but elegant white wedding bouquet. It's Pinterest Inspired: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/380694974722019812/.
As far as their symbolic meaning, some say white tulips represent purity, innocence, forgiveness and respect. They are a great flower for a wedding or to give as an apology. According to several websites, the tulip is the national symbol of four countries: The Netherlands, Hungary, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.
Do you know the national flower for the United States (without researching or googling it)???? We'll be sharing the answer to that in a post coming up in the near future. We hope you are learning some interesting flower information and also want to hear from you. What do you want to know about? Drop us a comment or message Skyline Flower Growers and we'll do our best to answer it.
