How to Care for Cut Flowers

SO YOU HAVE BEEN THE LUCKY RECEIVER OF A FLORAGE BOUQUET...SO HOW DO YOU LOOK AFTER THEM?!?

For a Bouquet:
First things first, you will beed a clean vase. It's very important that you put flowers into a clean vase to prevent bacteria from forming and affecting your fresh flowers. 
 
Once you have selected the right size vase, you will need a sharp pair of scissors and cut each individual stem on a sharp angle. By cutting the stems on an angle you are allowing the stem a larger water intake area. It's important to use sharp scissors that slice through the stem rather than crushing as this will affect water absorption. 
 
Change the water every second day and repeat above cutting process. By cutting the stems you are allowing water to pass through the flower's vessels which then pass nutrients through to the flowers bloom and makes them last longer. 
 
We also recommend adding a few drops of bleach to the vase. By adding the bleach to the water it ensures  that the water stays clear of bacteria which will affect the life of the flower. Please note that when we say a few drops of bleach we really only mean a few drops. 
 
Always remove spent flowers so that the nutrients are not wasted on them and bypass straight to the healthy blooms. By doing these simple steps, you should see your flowers lasting between 1-3 weeks
PRE-DESIGNED VASE DISPLAYS
Always place something under the vase or container to protect the surface of your furniture from water damage. Occasionally mist your floral arrangement with water and fill up the water container daily. The most effective way to do this is to place the arrangement in the sink and run the water until the vase is fully flushed.
Remove any dead heads or leaves from the arrangement.
