Cut Flowers Quick Care Instructions

🌸 Nurture Your Blooms: Expert Tips for Prolonging Flower Freshness

1. 🌿 Trim the Stems:

Upon receiving your bouquet from Darling Buds - Annandale Florist, use sharp scissors or shears to trim about 2.5-5cm off the bottom of each stem at a diagonal angle. This helps create a fresh surface for water absorption.

2. 💧 Water Refreshment:

Fill a clean vase with lukewarm water and add the floral food provided by our florist. Stir the water to ensure the food is evenly distributed. Place the freshly cut flowers in the vase immediately to prevent wilting.

3. 🌞 Sunlight and Temperature:

Position your floral arrangement away from direct sunlight and heat sources such as radiators or vents. Exposure to sunlight and high temperatures can cause flowers to wilt prematurely. Opt for a cool, shaded area to prolong their freshness.

4. 🍃 Leaf Removal:

Remove any foliage that would be submerged in water, as leaves left in the vase can promote bacterial growth and hasten decay. Pluck off any wilted or damaged leaves to maintain the aesthetic appeal of your bouquet.

5. 🔄 Water Change:

Change the water in the vase every two days or when it appears cloudy or discolored. Before refilling the vase, trim the stems again to ensure they can continue to absorb water effectively. Rinse the vase thoroughly to remove any bacteria or debris.

6. 🏡 Ideal Placement:

Place your floral arrangement in a cool, well-ventilated area away from drafts, ripening fruits, and appliances that emit heat. Avoid placing flowers near ripening fruits, as ethylene gas released by fruits can accelerate the aging process of flowers.
