Thank you for purchasing one of our stunning floral pieces. In order to enjoy your flowers longer we recommend following our advice below.
Flower Arrangements (flowers arranged in a floral foam):
In order to ensure the longest life of your flowers, top up the vase with clean water at room temperature every other day as floral foam can dry out very quickly. Pour in the water slowly, preferably over a sink or place where no damage can occur from any excess water.
Maintain your flowers preferably every day by removing any dead or dying flowers.
Place your flowers away from direct sunlight, radiators and air conditioning units. Flowers do not like extreme heat, cold or drafts. Also, avoid proximity to fruit as fruit naturally produce ethylene and this odourless gas will shorten the vase life of your flowers.
If and when some of the blooms must be removed, why not add some fresh blooms to fill in the empty space, and this way you will be able to enjoy your display even longer.
Remove the gift packaging, allowing the flowers to breath. Cut each stem of your bouquet at an angle with a sharp scissors, removing 2.5cm (1 inch) from the base of the stem.
Place them into a thoroughly clean vase with a fresh water. Please do not cut the binding cord if you wish to keep them arranged as we designed them. Remove all foliage below the water line, as if left in water it will create bacteria which is harmful to the flowers and will shorten their vase life.
Top up with clean water daily if necessary. Ideally, re-cut the stems and change the water every 3 days. Note very cold or hot water will stress the flowers so please use water at room temperature.
Place your bouquet or flower arrangement away from direct sunlight, radiators and air conditioning units. Flowers do not like extreme heat, cold or drafts. Also, avoid proximity to fruit as fruit naturally produce ethylene and this odourless gas will shorten the vase life of your flowers.
Maintain your flowers by removing any dead or dying flowers and any foliage that has fallen in the water.
Care should be taken to keep your flowers and foliage out of the reach of children and pets. Some flowers and plants can be harmful if consumed.
Please take care when positioning your floral display within your home or office as leakages and dampness from the water source can cause damage to delicate surfaces. Always place the vase or container onto a protective mat.
