How do I care for my Cut Flowers?
Your flowers have been carefully grown, picked, hand arranged and protected at every stage to ensure they arrive with you in peak condition. Some of your flowers may arrive in bud but these will open giving you maximum vase life.
If you follow our simple care instructions your flowers should last for at least 7 days.
- On arrival remove flowers from all
packaging and using a sharp knife or scissors cut 2- 3 cm off each stem
- Remove any leaves that would be below the waterline of the vase as these will start to decay causing bacteria to build up in the vase
- Place flowers in a clean vase, filled with fresh water and flower food, following the instructions on the sachet. Keep the water level topped up regularly
- Avoid placing your display near ripening fruit, direct heat, in direct sunlight or in a draught
- Re-cutting the stems every 3 to 4 days may make your flowers last longer
- If your roses droop try re-cutting the stems and standing them in warm water
- If your flowers arrive by post they may appear soft due to the fact that they have been without water for a few days. Once placed in water the stems and buds will firm up as they re-hydrate
Indoor Plants Care Instructions
Our indoor plants are easy to look after. They have a flowering life of about 3 weeks, but are not permanent displays.
- When the arrangement arrives, check that the compost is not dry and add water if needed
- Keep your arrangement in a well-lit position at 15ºC-21ºC away from draughts and direct sunlight
- Keep the compost moist: do not over-water, but never let the arrangement dry out completely
- Remove any dying leaves or flowers as soon as you see them
- After flowering has finished, healthy plants can be repotted individually (bulbs, if included, can be replanted in
Caution: A few plants can be harmful if eaten or cause skin irritation- check individual labels / care instructions supplied.
Orchids Care Instructions
Orchids are easy to look after when kept in a light position at a temperature not less than 17ºC, but away from direct sunlight and draughts.
- Water approximately once
a week, ideally allowing any
excess water to drain from
the base of the pot
- Feed with orchid food or half strength houseplant food, 3 waterings out of 4 during the summer. Reduce watering in the winter
- After flowering has finished, cut the flower stem down to 10-15cm
Outdoor Plants Care Instructions
Our outdoor plants are easy to look after and can be put in a sunny or partly shaded position.
- Keep raised off the ground
to allow free drainage and
protect from frost damage
during winter months
- Keep moist at all times but do not allow to become waterlogged, and reduce watering in winter
- To prolong flowering, remove all faded and dying flowers regularly
