Flower care guide

  • When placing flowers in a vase remove any wrapping paper and ribbon to ensure your blooms can spread out and get comfy in their new home.
  • Always put flowers in a clean vase to help prevent bacteria from growing which could shorten the life of your blooms.
  • Fill your vase 2/3 full of room temperature water and ensure there are no leaves below the water line.
  • Avoid sitting flowers in direct sunlight, where there are cold drafts or next to ripening fruit (especially bananas and apples).
  • Trim stems on a 45 degree angle using sharp scissors every 2-3 days, taking off 2cm. Cutting them on an angle ensures they have a larger surface area to drink from.
  • Change water ever 2-3 days or sooner if it becomes discoloured or cloudy.
  • Remove any wilting flowers from the vase to prevent mould.
