Caring for your flowers.
Hold your hand tied arrangement over a sink and cut a hole in the bottom of the cellophane water reservoir and drain water into sink. Carefully remove the rest of the gift wrapping but do not untie the flowers unless you wish to arrange them yourself. Your flowers have been specially arranged and tied ready to be placed directly into a vase.
Fill a vase with cold fresh water, add the flower food as per instruction and place the flowers in the vase. Change the water regularly and for optimum vase life place your flowers in a cool location away from any sources of direct heat, draughts or sunlight. Some of your flowers may arrive in bud to ensure longer vase life.
Place your arrangement in a cool location away from sources of heat or direct sunlight, carefully top up with fresh water keeping the floral foam moist at all times.
Most plants like good light though not direct sunlight and an even temperature. Avoid draughts, fumes and cold. Plants generally require less water in winter than in summer, try to keep the soil moist but not soaking. Many plants will tolerate the soil drying slightly between watering. Water with tepid water where possible and watering in the morning is preferable to the evening.
Fertilise during the growing season, April – Sept.
