Here at The Flower Blooms, we want our members to fully immerse themselves in the ultimate floristry experience- which means giving your flowers some TLC.
Check out our Top Tips below, to really get the most out of each and every bundle.
Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight will cause your flowers to dry out quickly. Heat from the sunlight can lead to wilting, shrivelling, or dropping flower heads.
CUT & REFRESH
Cut your flowers down every 2-3 days and ensure they always have plenty of fresh water and clean vases to prevent their stems closing and bacteria forming in the vase.
Check that your flowers aren't positioned near or above any radiators.
Heat causes irreversible damage to flowers- noticeable by them wilting, so always avoid placing them near any heat source.
NOT NEAR FRUIT
Fruit, such as bananas and apples produce high levels of ethylene. This type of gas causes rapid ageing of flowers and leaves, or in some cases will prevent flowers from opening or blooming. So keep them as far apart as possible in your home.
DON'T MIX THE OLD
Never mix old flowers with newer stems. The older stems will produce bacteria which will cause the newer flowers to age more quickly, moving them on to flower heaven quicker than expected.
Set time aside to fully immerse yourself in the flower arranging experience. Play around with vases and creating fun and pretty arrangements to place around your home or workspace.
