CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Please read these tips for keeping your flowers at their freshest. Your florals may arrive in a few different forms:

IN A WATER POUCH:

 

1) RECEIVING AND UNPACKING 

Carefully unpack the bouquet near a sink. There will be a water pouch wrapped around the bottom of the stems. Hold this pouch over a sink and carefully snip the plastic to create a small hole in the pouch. Allow the pouch to fully empty before unwrapping. Once fully drained, remove and recycle all the packaging.

2) CUT STEMS & REMOVE FOLIAGE

Your floral bouquet will already be freshly cut, but if you need to shorten the stems before adding to your vase, re-cut the stems at an angle. Always use a sharp knife or clippers rather than scissors as this will avoid crushing the stems. 

Leaves that will be submerged in water must be removed or else they will deteriorate and rot. These decaying leaves will invite bacteria that will affect your flowers longevity. 

3) VASE, FOOD AND WATER

Fill a clean vase with fresh water. Always use room temperature, clean water as most flowers take in warm water more efficiently than cold water. 

Sprinkle a little Flower Food into the water and then add the flowers to the vase.

4) PLACEMENT 

Arrange the greenery, leaves and foliage first. This ensures that the flowers are well supported. Then add the filler flowers and florals with the smallest blooms. Lastly, add the focal and largest florals.

For vases that will be placed against a wall, ensure the flowers are facing away from the wall and that all the bloom faces are seen from the front. You may like to arrange the flower stems at different heights to allow them all to be seen.

For florals that will be placed on a table and seen from all sides, ensure that all flowers are facing outward and equally spaced and can be enjoyed from every view point.

5) MAINTENANCE

Some floral blooms and stems last longer than others. If there are any stems that appear to be spoiling but the floral head is still blooming well, cut the stem much shorter and add these florals to a shorter vase. This way you can enjoy the flowers for longer.

Inspect the florals, petals and foliage and remove any that are wilting, turning brown or drying. One spoiled petal does not mean that the entire flower should be thrown away. By removing the spoiled petals and leaves you can prolong the enjoyment of the flower.

Repeat above steps 2-5 every 1 to 2 days.

IN A VASE CONTAINER:

1) RECEIVING AND UNPACKING 

For flowers that arrive already in a vase container, carefully remove and recycle all packaging material. Be careful not to tip the vase container as it will already contain water. The vase container may be made from breakable materiel such as glass or pottery - please take extra care when unpacking. 

2) FOOD AND WATER

You may need to add fresh water to your vase as it may be low from the delivery process. Always use room temperature, clean water as most flowers take in warm water more efficiently than cold water. 

Sprinkle a little of a packet of Flower Food into the water.

2) PLACEMENT

The flowers have already been cut and arranged for your enjoyment and do not need to be re cut or rearranged.

3) MAINTENANCE

After 1 to 2 days, change the water and re-cut the stems at an angle. Always use a sharp knife or clippers rather than scissors as this will avoid crushing the stems. 

Leaves that will be submerged in water must be removed or else they will deteriorate and rot. These decaying leaves will invite bacteria that will affect your flowers longevity. 

Some floral blooms and stems last longer than others. If there are any stems that appear to be spoiling but the floral head is still blooming well, cut the stem much shorter and add these florals to a shorter vase. This way you can enjoy the flowers for longer.

Repeat this step every 1-2 days.

IN A WIRE BALL:

 

1) RECEIVING AND UNPACKING 

Your florals may arrive in a container that has been constructed using a small wire ball in the base. 

There may be water that could spill so carefully unpack and recycle any packaging material.

Your florals have been designed in the wire ball as a way to support and maintain the desired design. Your arrangement can be enjoyed with minimal maintenance.  The flowers do not need to be moved or re-arranged in their container.

 2) WATER

If the vase container is low on water, top up the level to 2/3 full by adding water that is fresh and has had a sprinkle of flower food added. Always use room temperature, clean water as most flowers take in warm water more efficiently than cold water. 

3) MAINTENANCE

Use caution when checking the arrangement. The wire ball may have sharp edges.

Some floral blooms and stems last longer than others. If there are any stems that appear to be spoiling, but the floral head is still blooming well, carefully remove the flower. Pull it from its lowest point so that it does not break. Cut at an angle with a knife or clippers above the spoiled area and carefully reinsert the stem back to the same location.

If the stem has to be cut much shorter than the original size but the flower is still blooming, simply remove these florals completely and enjoy in a shorter vase. This way you can enjoy the flowers for longer.

Inspect the florals, petals and foliage and remove any that are wilting, turning brown or drying. One spoiled petal does not mean that the entire flower should be thrown away. By removing the spoiled petals and leaves you can prolong the enjoyment of the flower.

Repeat this step every 1 to 2 days.

IN GREEN FLORAL FOAM :

1) RECEIVING AND UNPACKING 

Your florals may arrive in a container that is filled with Floral Foam. There may be water that could spill so carefully unpack and recycle any packaging material.

Your florals have been designed in the Floral Foam for your enjoyment and can be enjoyed with minimal maintenance.  The flowers do not need to be moved or re-arranged in their container.

2) WATER

Floral Foam can hold up to 50 times its weight in water and your arrangement will arrive fully hydrated. The Floral Foam supports a flower and or foliage stem in a desired position and conducts water into the stem.

By providing a consistent source of water to your flowers, floral foam helps prolong the lifespan of your arrangements. It keeps flowers hydrated, preventing them from wilting and maintaining their freshness for an extended period.

3) MAINTENANCE

Floral foam should be wet at all times. 

Once wet floral foam has completely dried, it cannot be re-wet. To keep your arrangements fresh, check the water level in the container regularly by using a finger to make a small dent in the foam.

If the Floral Foam feels wet and your fingers are slightly submerged in the water - your arrangement does not need water adding.

If the Floral Foam feels dry, allow foam to hydrate by adding water that is fresh and has had a sprinkle of flower food added. Pour the water in slow tips to the foam and allow the foam to soak in small batches before adding more water.

Some floral blooms and stems last longer than others. If there are any stems that appear to be spoiling, but the floral head is still blooming well, carefully remove the flower. Pull it from its lowest point so that it does not break. Cut at an angle with a knife or clippers above the spoiled area and carefully reinsert the stem back to the same location.

If the stem has to be cut much shorter than the original size but the flower is still blooming, simply remove these florals completely and enjoy in a shorter vase. This way you can enjoy the flowers for longer.

Repeat this step every 1 to 2 days.
