How to care for your flowers
To keep your flowers looking their best, there are 5 very important steps to follow:
Keep your vase clean. Don't use aluminium containers. Glass is normally recommended.
Always cut 1" off your stems at a slanted angle. Never crush as this damages or kills the cells that collect the water. The fragments of stem that are left floating around can attract bacteria that will kill your flowers.
Make sure you remove all foliage below the water level, as these can cause bacteria in the water.
Always use the flower food provided.
Never place your flowers in direct sunlight, in a drafty area or in hot locations.
