Flower Care: Ten tips how to enjoy your flowers longer

  • Buy flowers when buds are beginning to show colour.

  • Make sure they are fresh. Do not buy flowers with yellow or wilted leaves.

  • Leave freshly bought flowers wrapped and let them drink up clean water for a few hours.

  • Make sure the vase has been thoroughly scrubbed using a brush. You can use bleach in case the vase is really dirty.

  • Add flower food to the clean vase water, the flowers will open better and last longer. Use the correct quantity, that?s one sachet per ? litre water

  • Use a sharp knife to cut 1 to 3 centimetres off the stems at an angle. Never brake or flatten the stems; this also applies to woody stems. Some flowers should not be cut, such as Euphorbia fulgens.

  • Leaves pollute the vase water and reduce the life of your flowers, so remove all leaves below the waterline.

  • Do not put flowers in the sun or in a draught, as they may wilt. Do not put the vase next to the fruit bowl, it will reduce the life of your flowers.

  • Check the water level daily because some flowers are very thirsty.

  • Bouvardia?s, lilacs, hydrangea?s and other forced shrubs require special shrub food. Ask your florist for it. Leave Daffodils and Hyacinths for a day to ?slime-out? (get rid of the slime from their stems) before you mix them with other flowers.

 

Important notes!

  • Some flowers such as Lilies and Anthuriums contain pollen that can be harmful to cats if they eat it. However there are new varieties available without pollen, ask for availability.

  • Some flowers such as Lilies that contain pollen that can stain. Remove the pollen by dabbing with cellotape.

  • Some flowers and foliage such as Aconitum, Euphorbia and Eucalyptus contain elements that can cause allergic reactions.

  • The flowers and foliage in our bouquets, arrangements and houseplants are not suitable for consumption

 

Flower arrangements are made in Oasis. We use Oasis Ideal that contains flower food. Make sure the oasis is always standing in some water to keep it moist. Once the oasis has dried out it won?t take water anymore. Although Oasis is green, it is made of non-toxic chemical foam, what means that after use you can deposit it in the green bin but in the grey
