How to make your flowers last longer

Do's and Don'ts Of Fresh Flower Care

  • Always uses a clean vase and quality water.
  • Always use the fresh flower food provided.
  • Always re-cut your flowers initially.
  • Always remove the leaves below the water line.
  • Always check the water daily and top it up.
  • Remove any flowers that with time look less than pristine, as this will keep the remaining flowers looking fresh.

  • Never use a "home made" substitute for flower food such as aspirin, soda pop, or bleach.
  • Never remove all foliage from the stem
  • Never place your flowers with or near fresh fruit or cigarette smoke as both produce ethylene gas which will shorten flower life.
  • Never place flowers in direct sunlight, near a heat   register, or near any other source of excessive heat.
  • Never use flower food in crystal or metal containers as the acid in the flower food will react with metal (including the lead in crystal)
