Hand Tied Bouquets:
Cut flowers should be delivered within an hour and kept away from heat or temperatures below 1 Celsius degree during transport as much as possible. Add the enclosed food packet to your vase and fill with room temperature water. Snip at least 1/2 cm off soft stems with sharp scissors (most flowers) or off woody stems with a cerated knife (roses + greens). Anything that seems too tough to snip with scissors is probably woody, but any cut/break really is better than none! Remove any leaves that would sit below the waterline. Place away from hot or cold drafts and out of direct sunlight. For the longest vase life, change the water and give the flowers another snip every 2 to 4 days. Remove wilted flowers as needed to encourage new blooms. If you’re thinking this is getting complicated, it simplifies to: snip, water, repeat!
Vase and Container Arrangements:
Once you get your flowers home, top the container up with water. Check on the water level of your arrangement every 2-3 days and keep filling the base of the vase or container as needed. Place away from hot or cold drafts and out of direct sunlight. Remove any wilted flowers as needed to encourage new blooms.
