Making the most of your flowers

Keeping your bouquet in top shape

At Fleurop.com every bouquet is affectionately arranged. However, it is necessary that you follow the recommendations hereafter to ensure you enjoy your flowers as long as possible.

  -  Cut the stems

  -  Place the flowers in water with feed

  -  Choose an appropriate place

First of all you need a clean vase. It must be free of germs and any soap residue.

Ideally, rinse the vase in the dishwasher. Please clean the vase each time you change the water.



 

Mix the flower food with water according to directions, it provides all the necessary ingredients to hydrate fresh cut flowers for the maximum enjoyment.

Incidentally, most flowers prefer lukewarm water because compared with cold it has fewer air bubbles, which could block water intake in the stems.

 

To ensure that your bouquet of flowers retains the shape as arranged, under no circumstances should you open the string (if there is one tied around the stems). This ensures that a bouquet will keep its shape for longer - in terms of appearance as well as condition. Remove leaves that have fallen into the water, and dead heads. These would otherwise accelerate the natural withering process.

Make a good cut

To ensure that your flowers can soak up sufficient water quickly, you should cut the stems with a sharp knife before placing them in the vase, and again a few days later. Please do not use scissors as these will squash the stems too much. If possible, make a slanted and long cut downwards.

The right location also determines how long you can enjoy your flowers. For the longest life, keep your roses away from direct sunlight, heat and drafts.


 

Fruit permanently emits the gas ethylene. This accelerates the ripening process of apples and pears etc. However, what is good for green bananas so that they turn yellow means a premature end to flowers. Avoid placing your bouquet near a fruit bowl.

A little amount of water will always evaporate, so top up the vase daily with fresh water. After three days the water should be replaces completely. Make sure you clean the vase thoroughly each time you change the water.
