Carefully remove all packaging from your flowers.
Do not remove the string or elastic from a hand-tied bouquet as this is holding the bouquet together in its arranged shape. This can be removed once the flowers are in the vase.
Cut approx. 2-3cm at an angle with a sharp pair of scissors, secateurs or knife from the base of each stem. Cutting at an angle will result in a larger surface area from which your flowers can drink.
Remove any leaves from the stems that will be below the waterline in the vase.
Place the bouquet in a clean vase filled with fresh water preferably on room temperature.
Add the flower food following the instructions on the sachet.
Arrange your flowers in your vase and display somewhere away from direct sunlight, heat sources and ripening fruit – all of these factors affect how long your flowers will last.
Re-cut the stems every 2-3 days and change the water.
Top up the vase water when necessary.
The flowers has been hand arranged in an oasis block, please do not remove stems from the foam. On arrival, check that the block is moist. To prolong the life of your arrangement add water into the container every 2 to 3 days.
