Christmas

How do I take care of the flowers I ordered?

Once you have received your flowers for Christmas, you would like to preserve their beauty as long as possible. Below we have provided fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
Remove the plastic that may have been wrapping your flowers. Once the plastic wrapping is removed, your flowers will be able to breathe. Next, fill a vase with fresh water for your flowers.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Extreme temperatures can be harmful to the delicacy of your flowers. Do your best to avoid placing them in areas they will be too hot. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. This can cause your flowers to wilt or dry out more quickly. Most flowers thrive best in cooler and more controlled conditions.

Ethylene gas can damage the lifespan of your flowers. So it is important to avoid placing your flowers near any fruit or in the line of cigarette smoke.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Periodically tend to your flowers to help preserve their beauty.

  • For vase arrangements, provide your flowers with fresh water. Your flowers will drink the water they need to provide themselves with proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we recommend providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • When the water in your vase becomes cloudy, clean out your vase thoroughly with soap and water and then refill it with fresh water. Using soapy water to clean your vase will remove any bacteria that could cause your flowers to deteriorate more quickly.
  • For any wilting leaves or stems, remove the strongly wilted contents to help maintain your beautiful display.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut your stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom of the stem. A fresh open stem will help your flowers absorb water for hydration. We recommend that you avoid using scissors to cut your flowers. Scissors can crush the stems and prevent the flowers from being able to absorb the water.

How do I take care of my flowers once they are delivered?

Now that you have your stunning flowers, you would like to preserve their beautiful state for as long as possible. Below we have provided some fresh flower care tips to help guide you.

First things first
If your flowers came in plastic, you will need to remove the plastic wrapping as soon as possible. This allows for your flowers to breathe. Then provide fresh water for your flowers as soon as possible.

Where you place your flowers can make a difference
Avoid placing your flower arrangements near areas of extreme temperatures. This could include windowsills, direct sunlight all day, or an overly hot room. These factors can cause your flowers to dry out quickly or wilt. Most flowers last longer under cooler and controlled conditions. Avoid placing your flowers next to fruit or cigarette smoke. Ethylene gas can reduce the life of your flowers and be detrimental to their lifespan.

Maintaining a beautiful presentation
Keep your flowers looking fresh and displayed beautifully by tending to your flowers periodically.

  • Keep vase arrangements filled with fresh water. This allows the plants to drink up the water they need for proper hydration.
  • For basket arrangements, we suggest providing your flowers with daily fresh water.
  • Remember to switch out any cloudy water. You will want to fully clean the inside of your vase with soap and water, thoroughly rinse, and then refill the vase with new water. This will help remove any bacteria that could possibly harm your flowers and cause them to deteriorate more quickly.
  • As you notice leaves or stems wilting, remove the strongly wilted contents. This will help your flowers maintain a fresh and appealing appearance.
  • To help your flowers to maintain proper hydration, use a sharp knife to cut your stems. Cut the stems at an angle one to two inches from the bottom. This will help the flowers to absorb water. It is discouraged to use scissors to cut the flower stems. Scissors can crush the stems, preventing proper water absorption.
