Taking care of the flowers
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
- Remove the latex cover from the transport vase or remove the arrive alive bag around the flower stems
- Remove the leaves of the stems from the bottom part of the stems (around 20 cm.) so that the leaves will not be in the water
- Cut around 3 cm. from the bottom of the flower stems, always use a clean, scharp knife or pruning shears and always cut under 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. The use of a glass vase is best because bacterias 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 flowerfood and put it in the water, never let the waterlevel get below 40% of the vase. Our flowers are so fresh that it is possible that after 1 day you need to add 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.
