Flower Care

We want you to enjoy your flowers for as long as possible, so with a few simple steps and some love, your flowers will last longer and love you back!

 

WRAPPED OR VASE ARRANGEMENTS

THE VESSEL

Your beautiful bunch needs a home, so prepare your vase with care. We recommend a glass vase  that has been cleaned with bleach and thoroughly rinsed to ensure that any remnants are not  lingering around. Having a clean vase means no nasty bacteria to contaminate your fresh blooms. Start off on the right foot, and this will ensure longevity.

STEMS ARE THE KEY

Your blooms would've been prepared with the utmost care, but we always recommend cutting 1cm-2cm from the ends on an angle. This ensures that your blooms soak up their water evenly.

LEAVES

Remove any leaves that will be submerged by the water. The leaves floating around in the water can cause bacteria to grow and be harmful to your flowers.

WATER

We have included a small satchel of water food. Place this in your first vase of water and stir to  mix. After this, when you change your water daily, just tip out your old water, wash and  thoroughly rinse the vessel and refill with fresh water.

PLACEMENT

Fresh flowers can sometimes be a little temperamental. Don’t place them in direct sunlight, under or near air conditioners or near heaters as they will dry the flowers out, making them wilt. Also, don’t place near fresh fruit as it will age your flowers quicker. Placing your blooms properly will help them last much longer, and combined with our care instructions, you’ll be able to enjoy your fresh blooms for days!

 

BOXED ARRANGEMENTS

THE VESSEL

Your blooms are arranged in floral foam so that they need minimal care, however they still need a bit of extra attention to make the most out of them.

WATER

Every couple of days water your flowers, although they are in wet foam they still get thirsty and this helps them to last longer. Just be careful not to over water – small amounts frequently!

MAINTAIN

Every 2 to 3 days remove any dead flowers or wilting leaves so that it doesn’t affect the other blooms.
