Taking care of the flowers
How to take care of the flowers?
Have you received one of our bouquets and you are not certain how to take care of the flowers? Here you will find several tips.
Before you can put the flowers in the vase
You have received our bouquet in the delivery box, what are the next steps.
Carefully remove the packaging
Your flowers have been hydrated during shipping using our Arrive Alive moisture sponge. Remove the sponge and plastic bag affixed to your bouquet.
Remove the leaves of the stems from the bottom part of the stems (around 20 cm.) so that the leaves will not be submerged in water
Cut around 3 cm. from the bottom of the flower stems. Always use a clean, sharp knife or pruning shears and always cut at an angle of 45 degrees
Cut the binding rope that was used to hold the bouquet together
Putting the flowers in the vase
Always use a clean vase. Your flowers have arrived in our bamboo and rice pressed vase which is designed to enhance the bouquet received. Or perhaps you’ve purchased one of our Frederique’s Choice glass vases. The use of a glass vase is best as bacteria cannot develop easily and it is also easy to see how much water is in the vase. Always fill the vase for at least 75% of clean water. Use the enclosed flower food and put it in the water. Never let the water level get below 40% of the vase. Our flowers are so fresh that it is possible that after 1 day you need to add some additional water. Fresh and enough water ensure a longer life of the flowers. If you add water to the vase you do not need to add extra flower food.
