Top Tips & Tricks

Learn how to keep your flowers looking fresh and get the most out of your flower delivery.

  • Trimming is a vital step in maintaining your flowers. Use a sharp knife or scissors to cut at least 1cm off all stems at an angle.
  • For best results cut the stems under water to allow the flowers to absorb more water.
  • Place flowers into fresh clean tepid water and in clean containers or vase.
  • Tepid water absorbs faster than cold water allowing water and  nutrients to travel up to the bloom as quickly as possible.
  • Remove all leaves from the stem where it is likely to be immersed in water.
  • Add a few drops of household bleach and a teaspoon of sugar to the water to help keep flowers fresh for longer.
  • Keep your flowers away from direct sunlight, draughts and ripening fruit.
  • Re-cut the bottom stems every few days to allow better water absorption and fill your vase or container with freshwater every day.
