Caring for Your Flowers

If you have received a flower gift from someone, flower care is essential to expand their lifespan and have a beautiful bouquet or floral arrangement brightening up your home for longer.

  1. Fill a vase with 2/3rds of room temperature water. 
  2. Remove packaging and keep the bouquet tied.
  3. On an angle, trim 2cm off the ends of the stems.
  4. Remove any leaves that fall under the water line.
  5. Change water and trim stems every 2-3 days 

Once unwrapped, you will need to trim 2cm off each stem on an angle and place the stems in a clean vase of fresh water. Remove any leaves that may have fallen below the water line, as this will lead to bacteria growth in the vase water. If your florist has supplied a sachet of flower preservative, the instructions on the sachet and add to the vase. If not, you will be able to also extend the longevity of your flowers by changing the water daily, and recutting the stems every 2-3 days.
