Caring for your fresh flowers, for the longest vase life.
- Fill a squeaky clean vase with fresh water, snip 1-2cm from the ends & remove any foliage from below the water line.
- Replace with fresh water every couple of days. Clean water is essential for maximum vase life.
- Some flowers can wilt when moving from one temperature to another. If this happens, re-cut & plunge stems in 2" boiling water for 1 minute then back into deep cold water. They will soon perk up and look lovely again.
- Avoid placing in direct sunlight or near fruit bowls
- Different flower varieties have varying vase life. Our bouquets have a mixture, at different stages of opening for a lovely long display of at least a week, if care instructions are followed. Remove any spent blooms & enjoy your flowers at every stage of their life. Some will dry beautifully.
- Some flowers and foliage can cause irritation to the skin. Always wash hands after handling.
- Not for culinary use.
Caring for your dried flowers.
- Dried flowers are for indoor display only. Follow these simple care tips and they will last for years.
- The most important one: avoid moisture! Choose somewhere dry, away from humidity to display your dried flowers.
- Avoid direct sunlight - The colours in your dried arrangement will naturally soften over time - which also looks beautiful. By displaying it away from direct sunlight will slow down this process.
- Display away from heat sources - this can cause them to dry out and become brittle.
- Dusting - If your wreath collects a bit of dust or a stray cobweb, you can gently blow them away with a hairdryer on the lowest and coolest settings.
- Dried flowers are flammable and should be kept safely away from fires and naked flames.
