Flower Care - A General Guide
A little love & care for your flowers and they will bloom better, last longer.
Keep flowers in cool location, avoid direct sun, direct heat or fan.
Keep away from fruits! Chemicals released from fruits such as ethylene can ripen your flowers too.
Remove all foliage below water level to keep water clean so flowers can last longer.
For bouquets and cut flowers
If you need to keep the flowers inside packaging for some time – we have some water at the base of bouquets. Just make sure the bouquet is kept with water at the base. If unsure, better add more water! Add some water from the top center of bouquet, some flowers like hydrangeas drink up water quicker than others!
To keep in vase
Prepare clean vase of water first-
Flower should be keep in water as much as possible for better water absorption. Once it leaves water, air bubble may enter the stem and hinder water absorption.
Clean vase thoroughly with bleach to minimize bacteria. Make sure bleach is washed off so that flower will not be damaged by the bleach. Top up with enough water so that all stems cutting will be under water. You may add flower food to water.
Removing wrappers but not binding tape/ string
DO NOT CUT THE TAPE OR STRING THAT HOLDS THE FLOWERS TOGETHER! IT IS WHAT WE USE TO CREATE THE DESIGN SO THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REARRANGE THE FLOWERS AT HOME. You only need to remove wrapping and the water bag base.
Making fresh cuts
After removing packaging, and the water bag at the base, use a sharp, clean knife or scissors to cut approx. 1 inch off each stem around 45-degree angle to increase water absorbing area. Place in the clean vase of water. Make a fresh cut every time you change water.
Top up, changing water, spraying flowers
Always top up water every day, and change water every 2-3 days. You may change less water if you use flower food.
Some flowers like hydrangeas do like to have spray of water. But for others, please ensure water is not trapped inside the flowerhead which will cause flowers to rot and gets moldy.
For Baskets / vase arrangements
Keep topping up with water!
For flower in vase – please change water every 2-3 days, follow the flower bouquet guide above.
Please remove lily pollen once the lily opens if you are worried about pollen stain – use tape to stick away pollen from fabric – wiping with water will worsen the stain.
