Perhaps the most common question we receive here at Lynch Creek Farm is “How do I care for my wreath?”
Lynch Creek Farm wreaths are the freshest in the industry because we procure our fresh evergreens from the forests of the great Pacific Northwest, right in our own backyard. These are living, breathing products that will last a long time.
There are care instructions on every red gift box we ship out, but here are some quick tips:
- It is a good idea to hang your wreath outside when possible, because the product is breathing and fresh air will extend the lifespan. Climate and direct sunlight also drastically affect how long your wreath will last. Hang your wreath in a cool location with a good amount of shade as this will help your wreath live longer.
- Wreaths absorb moisture through the cut ends of the evergreen branches on the back. To increase the health and lifespan of your wreath, spritz some water on the back of the wreath every 2-3 days.
- Some customers really want their wreath on the inside of their home, and that is understandable. Keep wreaths away from heat sources that may dry them out such as direct sunlight, heaters, air vents, or fireplaces. Always keep wreaths away from ignition sources such as open flames.
- Indoors, our wreaths will last about 3 weeks when properly cared for and with regular watering (spritzing).
- Outdoors, our wreaths will last about 4-6 weeks when properly cared for and with regular watering (spritzing).
- Metal wreath hangers have a clear coating over the color so they will not leave paint marks on your door.
- Our ornaments/berries/bows will not bleed color when wet.
