Flower Care

 

For beautiful, long-lasting flowers, follow these simple steps:
1. Pour lukewarm water and flower food into a clean vase.
2. Unwrap the flowers and place the stems in a sink or bowl of water. Carefully cut 1/2 inch of the end of each stem with a sharp knife or scissors. Remove any leaves that may fall below the water line. Foliage left in water will discolor it and promote disease.
3. For best results, re-cut the stems, change the vase water, and add flower food every three to four days. Keeping the flowers out of direct sunlight or drafts will help extend their life as well.
These simple flower care steps will also be included in the gift box sent to your recipient.

Additional Flower Care Tips:
When cutting the flowers, try not to "saw" the flowers — make a clean cut of the stem instead. Cut the stems at a slight angle, which will create more surface area to absorb water.

Do not display flowers on top of appliances that give off heat (e.g. televisions, stereos, etc.).

Always put your flowers in a clean vase. Wash and rinse the vase before using it. This will get rid of bacteria and residue that can harm flowers.

Do not store flowers near fresh fruit. Fruit emits ethylene gas, which is harmful to flowers and can kill them prematurely.

If your bouquet includes roses, you can pluck off a few of the outer petals if they are discolored. These outer petals are called "guard" petals and help protect the flower during shipping.

If your bouquet includes lilies, be careful of the stamens (the long yellow parts inside the flower) - they can stain fabric. If a piece of fabric does get stained, use clear tape to pick the stain up off the fabric. Don't rub the stain.

Old tricks of the trade, such as putting an aspirin, a penny, or sugar in the vase water serve the same purpose as flower food. They give the flower nutrients and kill harmful bacteria as well.
