Flower Care

Wrapped Flowers

Remove all packaging, recycle paper and plastics, and compost your stem wrap from your bouquet. Fill a clean vase 3/4 full with cool, fresh water. Trim the stem ends on a 45 degree diagonal using sharp kitchen scissors, floral shears, or a knife at least 1/2”. The flowers should rest just above the lip of your vase, so you may need to trim your stems more if you don’t have a vase tall enough.  We recommend leaving the twine on the stems to hold the shape of the bouquet.

To extend the vase life of your flowers, change the water entirely every 1-2 days and if you can, recut the stems. In addition, place your flowers out of direct sunlight and away from any source of heat or draft. As individual flowers fade, remove them and continue to enjoy the arrangement as each flower has a different lifespan (~4-7 days). Keep them away from any ripening fruits or vegetables.

 

Arranged Flowers

Remove all packaging and recycle the paper and plastics. The flowers have been thoughtfully arranged in a vase without the use of floral foam which means that water has likely spilled out in transit. Top off the vase with cool water immediately upon receipt. Ensure your vase is filled at least 3/4 of the way. If arranged in a metal or ceramic container, check the water level by placing your finger under the flowers and in the vase- you should feel it close to the top. If your flowers are arranged in a shallow vessel, you will need to top it off daily with water.
