Flower Care

The outermost petals of your roses* have been left on to protect the delicate inner layers while in transit. We like to think of these guys as ‘guards’ but once they’re at your door, their job is done. Gently pinch them away from the base of the bud to reveal the vibrant hues hiding underneath.

 

*If your bouquet does not contain roses, skip ahead to Step 2!

Trim the base of your stems at an angle to help them rehydrate. When not submerged in water, stems tend to dry out which makes it harder for flowers to quench their thirst once they’ve reached the vase phase. Help them freshen up by snipping 3-5cm off the base at an angle.

Any leaves that fall below the waterline in your vase should be removed. If left on, they’ll quickly turn to mush, dirtying your water and causing your flowers to fade faster.

Arrange your bouquet into a beautiful bunch with these simple tricks:

    - Trim your stems at four different lengths, with the smallest sitting at the rim of your vase.

    - Arrange support stems into a teepee shape to the bouquet structure

    - Keeping your vase still and placing the tallest stems at the back, add in your focal flowers one variety at a time. Voilà!
