We recommend that you follow these important care instructions so that you can enjoy your flowers for longer!
The first 24 hours are critical. Flowers will absorb up to half the water they require to survive during this time.
ALL FLOWERS (except tulips)
Recut all stems at an angle approximately 3-4 cm high upon receipt and again every few days approximately 2 cm high. Keep the flowers in a cool place away from draughts. Do not place flowers near your heater, tv or microwave oven. Do not place flowers near fruit. Many fruits emit ethylene, which causes ripening and accelerates the ageing process. A few drops of bleach in a vase makes a good alternative to flower preservative and helps keep your vase clean.
Trim the stems approximately 2-3 cm using an angled cut every few days. Don't change the water and don’t add flower preservative. Tulips will usually grow towards the light and can have a natural ‘droop'.
To prevent soggy stems, have shallow water (5 to 6 cm deep).
Lilies require well-lit areas to assist in the opening of the flowers. To prevent staining of clothing or furniture, remove the stamens (the little pollen clusters inside the lilies) as soon as they open. Stains are best removed by washing and exposure to bright sunlight (UV).
Water daily and remove any perished flowers.
Remove all foliage which will be submerged under water. Recut all stems at an angle approximately 3-4 cm high upon receipt and again every few days approximately 2 cm high. Fill vase to the top as roses are thirsty. If a rose wilts re cut stem, sit stem in warm water for a few minutes and then back into cold water. Change the vase with fresh water.
