Caring for Your Flowers
Flowers don’t last as long as we’d like but with the right care we can expand the life of a single bud vase, an adored bouquet or stunning floral arrangement.
On average, floral arrangements last from 4 days to a week depending on the type of flowers. Different types of flowers require different care instructions.
Start with a clean vase & good quality water!
Carefully remove all packaging from your flowers.
Clean the vase thoroughly with soapy water to remove any bacteria that could cause the fresh flowers to deteriorate even quicker. Be sure to rinse thoroughly.
Cut approx. 2-3cm at an angle with a sharp pair of scissors. Cutting at an angle will result in a larger surface area from which your flowers can drink.
Flowers will live longer if you avoid placing them in direct sunlight, heat, on top of appliances such as heaters, fireplace as they can precipitately wilt cut flowers.
Keep away from fruit. Fruits produce ethylene, which tells a plant to ripen, and that will shorten the life span of your flowers.
Re-cut the stems every 3 days and change the water. Top up the vase water when necessary.
Some flowers come arranged, inserted in a brick floral foam that is damp and filled with water, please do not remove stems from the foam. On arrival, check that the block is moist. To prolong the life of your arrangement add water into the container every day.
