caring for your blooms:
- Check your flowers daily.
Keep the vase, container or liner filled with fresh water.
Even if the container has floral foam, you should keep the water level high to promote long lasting flowers.
The container’s water has a fresh flower food added to it. If you completely change the water, you should also thoroughly clean the container.
Add fresh water with our fresh flower food provided. The food will properly nourish the flowers, keep bacteria at bay (which can block the stems and prevent them from absorbing water), encourage buds to open, and lengthen the life of the bouquet. It’s one of the best—and easiest—ways to extend the life of your flowers.
- Re-cut their stems every few days, remove the flowers from the design and re-cut the stems. Remove 3/4" to one inch from the bottom of the stem and be sure to cut the stem at an angle to allow the flower the best chance to take up water. Use a sharp knife or sharp floral cutter or scissor. Avoid smashing or piercing the stems, as this can destroy the water vessels in the stem and prevent water absorption. Remove any spent or damaged blooms or foliage that falls below the waterline in the vase.
avoid disturbing the stem placements in a vase arrangement, tie the
stems with twine just above the vase’s edge before taking them out of
their vase. Hold the tied arrangement at the twine-bound point to
re-cut the stems. Then place them back into the clean vase with the
fresh water and a flower food.
- Change their water, and add additional fresh flower food Be sure to clean the vase before refilling it with room-temperature water mixed with the proper amount of fresh flower food. Be sure no debris is floating in the water (such as leaves and stem parts) as this could promote the growth of bacteria which can shorten a flower's life.
