FAQ -
How long will my fresh wreath last?
It depends. :) Time of year is a huge factor. November-March is the best time for wreaths with cold weather. They typically last 4-6 weeks at that time. April-May is when the boxwood sends out new growth. The new growth is gorgeous! But, alas, it also wilts relatively quickly (in about a week). At this time, the boxwood works bestfor for those short term events such as weddings. I work with you to have them arrive close to the wedding date so that they will be the freshest possible. The rest of the year varies from 3-8 weeks. Luckily the boxwood dries beautifully so you can continue enjoying!

How do I care for my boxwood wreath?
If you plan to hang your wreath outdoors, no additional care is needed. These wreaths slowly dry over the months and then will either turn pale green or golden blonde depending on how much sun they receive.
If indoors, you can lightly spray the wreath just as you would Christmas greenery. This will help keep it glossy a bit longer. But I prefer to just let my wreaths dry naturally to the beautiful woodsy colors.

Does boxwood have an odor?
I have come to the conclusion that this is all a matter of taste. I find the fragrance of boxwood refreshing and woodsy. Much of the reason I like to work with boxwood is this natural fragrance that reminds me of a walk in the woods. The smell reminds alot of people of historical places such as WIlliamsburg and Monticello. However, to a few people it has a slight skunky odor. Needless to say, I can't tell you which it will be to you.
