Spring Flowers always uses the freshest flowers for your order. So, after receiving flowers from Spring Flowers, you absolutely can keep the flowers fresh and can be displayed for longer just thanks to the following simple care tips.
Here are how Spring Flowers suggest you to take care of flower.
Take care of flower bouquet
- Carefully remove the wrapping paper. It’s a good idea to keep the string or elastic from a hand-tied bouquet, as Spring Flowers’ florists have fixed the shape of the bouquet in the most beautiful way.
- Cut the stems about 2-3 cm. We encourage you to cut at an angle, it will result in a larger surface area from which your flowers can drink.
- Remove any leaves that will be below the waterline in the vase.
- Use a clean vase and water for flower arrangements. You can use cool water according to room temperature. Add flower food to the water (if available).
- Place the vase in a cool place, away from sunlight, high temperature.
- Cut the stem and replace the water every 2-3 days.
Take care of flower basket / foam flower arrangement
- If the flower has been placed in a pot / flower arrangement in your favorite shape, please do not remove the flower from the foam.
- Just use your hand to check the moisture content of the foam under the flower base. If the foam is already dry, add water directly to the foam. To keep the flowers fresh for longer, add water to the foam every 2-3 days.
- Remember not to place flowers in direct sunlight, or in front of a fan.
Take care of Orchid
- Orchids grow best at a temperature of 18 – 29 degrees C, away from direct sunlight. You should place the plant in a cool place, avoid placing it in a place with strong winds so that the flowers do not dry out and quickly wilt.
- Water when the soil begins to dry, usually every 3 to 4 days.
- Note: only watering on the roots, not on flowers and leaves.
Some more tips to care for your flowers:
#1: Use sharp scissors when cutting.
Sharp scissors ensure a clean cut that leaves cells unharmed.
#2: Avoid sitting your flowers beside ripening fruit or vegetables.
When you sit your vase of flowers next to ripening fruit, you’re exposing them to ethylene and they’d easier drop their petals.
#3: How much water do I add to a vase?
Fill the vase two-thirds with water – use lukewarm water as flowers can drink this more quickly. Avoid using hot or cold water as this can shock delicate flowers.
