Flower Care

Bouquets & Roses
Take care when removing the cellophane. This is sometimes used as a resevoir for water to keep your bouquet fresh during delivery. Cut the stems at an angle about 3cms from the end. Place in deep water and stand in a cool shady place for an hour or more. Fill a vase with water, add flower food and place the flowers into the vase. Keep your flowers in a cool location away from draughts, direct heat and sunlight. Top up regularly with water and food. Some of your flowers may still be in bud. This is because we want you to enjoy them for as long as possible. 

If a rose starts to droop at the head, re-cut the stem, wrap the head in paper to support upright and plunge 5cms of the stem into boiling water for about 30 seconds. Cut the stem again and place in deep cold water for 2 hours. 

Lily pollen can stain. Please carefully remove lily stamens from any newly opening blooms and avoid direct contact. 

Release the water from the water resevoir by cutting a hole in the cellophane over a sink. Remove all gift wrapping. Do not untie your flowers. They have been specially arranged and tied ready to be placed in a vase. Follow care instructions as for Bouquets. 

Top up the container with water daily. 

These are for decoration only. To avoid the risk of fire you are advised not to light them. 

Fresh Fruit
Fresh fruit is sometimes included in flower arrangements for decorative purposes only. Do not remove or eat as it may have beeen secured with wooden or plastic fixings. 

Most plants like light and even temperature. Avoid draughts, fumes and cold. Foliage plants require little water in winter. Flowering plants generally need more water. Water Azaleas and Hydrangeas daily. Water St. Paulia and Cyclamen plants from the bottom and not the top. All plants should be fertilised as required.
