Floral Care and Handling

Customers sometimes ask how they can make their flowers last as long as possible. Here are a few tips for anyone who wants to get the most out of their flowers:

  • Keep cut flowers cool until you can get them into water.
  • Remove any leaves that will be under water in the vase.
  • With stem under water, cut about an inch off the stem with a sharp knife or clippers - cut at an angle.
  • Fill vase with fresh, room temperature water and arrange flowers in vase.
  • Again make sure to remove any leaves that are under water.
  • Display floral arrangement in a cool area - keep out of direct sunlight.
  • Keep the water fresh. Change the water daily.

  • Re-cut the stems every 2 or 3 days.
