caring for

Summer Martini


When your bouquet arrives, trim all stems by 2-3cm and remove any discoloured guard petals from the memory lane roses. Remove any foliage that will fall beneath the waterline and place your bouquet in a vase with deep water. As this bouquet contains sunflowers, we recommend a taller vase to support the top heavy flowers.

Sunflowers and roses will arrive ready to bloom, whilst alstroemeria will arrive in bud. Once the flowers have had some time to hydrate in water, they will open and bloom beautifully.
