Flower Care Instructions


Flowers Arranged in a Basket

Floral Arrangements - in a vase, container or basket

  • Keep vase or floral container filled with a solution of clean, fresh water and flower food (provided by florist)
  • If flowers are arranged in floral foam, keep foam soaking wet
  • If water becomes cloudy, replace with fresh water and food solution
  • After 2-3 days, cut 2-3 cm from bottom of stems with a sharp knife as this may help your flowers to drink more water, and thus look better longer
  • Keep flowers in a cool location, away from ripening fruit, intense direct sunlight, and hot or cold air vents



Loose Bouquets of Flowers, or Boxed Flowers

  • Mix fresh water with flower food (provided by florist)
  • Remove leaves that will be below the water line
  • Optionally cut stems by removing a 2-3 cm with a sharp knife
  • Place freshly cut stems in vase filled with food and water solution
  • After 2-3 days, re-cut 2-3 cm from bottom of stems with a sharp knife
  • Add fresh water to vase as necessary


Finally, don’t forget to talk to your flowers, or perhaps hum or sing softly. Eric, our customer service manager feels that bluegrass and country are the best for happy flowers. ;-)
