Flower care tips

    You can help flowers last longer and keep vibrant by following simple flower care tips.
For bouquets and cut flowers
    1. Clean your vase thoroughly to prevent bacteria and fill 2/3 of vase with lukewarm water.
    2. Use a sharp, clean knife or scissors, cut 1 inch off each stem at a 45-degree angle every few days. Change water when it becomes discolored and top it up when needed.
    3. Remove any fronds and leaves which lie below the water level; these will decompose and contaminate the water and could damage your flowers.
    4. Maintain good ventilation around. Keep flowers in a cool position, away from heating or cooling vents, appliances, direct sunlight or draughts and ripening fruit
    5. For hydrangeas, you can spray mist onto flowers as they are thirsty with water
