Flower Care Instructions

General Flower Care Instructions

When the flowers arrive they will need to be taken out of the box, cut stems on an angle, remove all leaves that will go below water line, and allow them to drink for several hours.  Please they are thirsty.  They just need a little love and attention and will be get back to a lush, and beautiful state once cared for.

Please Note: Keep flowers in a cool, dark location away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat. Exposing flowers to warm environments (outside, a hot room, etc) will help the flowers bloom, and storing your flowers in a cooler environment will slow down the opening process.

Also, it is important to keep flowers away from fruits, vegetables and/or plants which produce ethylene gas which could cause your flowers to wilt prematurely.

Rose Care Tips

Your roses are thirsty and need to drink water for at least 6 hours to perk up.  Please follow instructions below and your roses will bloom over the next few days.

(1) Cut approximately 1" off the stems on an angle under running water.

(2) Remove the outside guard petals (5-10 petals). These rugged outer petals were left on to protect your roses during shipment.

(3) Remove any leaves that fall below the water line. Not removing the leaves may cause bacteria to form and shorten the rose’s life.

(4) Fill containers with at least 4" of fresh hot water, add floral food to prevent bacteria from forming and to provide

added nutrients to the roses. If you do not have flower food, it can be purchased at any local florist.

(5) Add to water and allow to hydrate. If you see that some flowers are still drooping after 4 hours, it's possible an air bubble has formed, re-cut the stems following the above directions. Roses may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate.

(6) For the longest life, keep your roses away from direct sunlight and heat.

(7) Re-Cut stems, change water and add second packet of flower food on day 4

Gerbera Daisy Care Tips

(1) Remove the plastic cups but leave the straws on the stems for a longer vase life. Allow them to drink for 8-12 hours to perk up. Leave the tubes on the stems until ready to arrange. The tubes prevent the stems from bending. Be sure to position each tube at the uppermost part of the stem, near the flower’s head.

(2) Cut approx 1-2"off of the stems.

(3) Fill vase with water and add 1 packet of flower food.

(4) Gerbera stems have a tendency to get blocked with bacteria which causes flowers to wilt prematurely. To prevent premature wilting, make sure to change water every 12 hours

(5) If flower necks have started to bend/sag then re-cut stems and place in fresh water with flower food

(6) Always keep flowers away from extreme heat, drafts and direct sunlight
