GENERAL CARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

We've put together some basic care instructions to follow for your beautiful bouquet. If you would like to see care tips for specific stems please see the section for Care Instructions by Flower Type or Plant Type.

 

1.

Remove all packaging and trim 2-3cm off the stems, making an additional cut with a sharp knife or secateurs.

2.

Remove any leaves that are below the waterline.

3.

Remove any discoloured guard petals from roses. Please keep your bouquet out of reach of pets as the contents may be toxic and harmful.

4.

All lilies come in bud form to ensure they arrive in the freshest condition. To avoid staining from lily pollen, remove the anthers with a tissue as the bud opens.

5.

Place flowers in a clean vase. Fill with fresh cold water mixed with the sachet of flower food provided. Do not use metal containers as they neutralise the flower food.

6.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS BY FLOWER TYPE

 

ROSES

Estimated Life Span

Normally 7 - 12 days

Does This Bouquet Arrive In Bud?

Ready to bloom

Is This Bouquet Harmful To Pets?

No

There are over 100 species of roses in the world and the rose is one of our most popular stems. You'll find many species of rose with us at Appleyard London: Avalanche, Memory Lane & Garden roses to name but a few. Each colour of rose is said to have a different meaning. For example, red roses symbolise love and courage, whereas pink roses symbolise appreciation and grace.

 

1. Cut the roses at an angle and remove foliage

Cutting your roses at an angle will maximise the surface area of the stem that is drinking up the water! It's good to leave a little foliage on the stem to keep the arrangement fuller. But we recommend to remove any foliage thats below the waterline.

2. Remove guard petals

Don't worry if it looks like your roses are a little brown or discoloured on arrival. The outer petals are what's known as the 'guard petals', they protect the rose whilst they make their journey to you. You can simply remove these and the roses will bloom beautifully.

3. Place in deep water

Roses will need a lot to drink so it's important to choose a vase that will make them look pretty as well as keeping them at their best. Roses seem to hydrate better in deeper and water that is lukewarm (not hot).

4. Ensure there is enough space between the stems

Placing too many stems in a vase will not give the roses enough room to open up and the lack of room will make it harder for them to feel hydrated. It's important to prevent premature moulding to the leaves and blooms by keeping them apart.

5. Enjoy your roses as they bloom

If you follow these handy tips then they should last for 7-12 days.

We hope you have found these tips helpful and your beautiful blooms last as long as possible.

LILIES

Estimated Life Span

Normally 7 - 11 days

Does This Bouquet Arrive In Bud?

Yes

Is This Bouquet Harmful To Pets?

Yes, especially to cats

Lilies are a large, often fragrant flower usually blooming in late Spring / early Summer. They are available in a wide range of colours including: white, pink and orange, with less common colours such as: yellow, red and purple. Lilies often have markings on their petals, including spots and little brush strokes. Did you know there are over 90 species of Lily in the world? Our favourites are Oriental & Calla Lilies.

 

1. Lilies arrive in bud

Our lilies arrive in bud meaning they are ready to open up. The lily stems sometimes contain more than one head. The heads may not all open at once overnight, but once the stems are trimmed and they are placed in water, they should bloom beautifully.

2. Sensitive to ethylene gas

Lilies are sensitive to ethylene gas, a natural occurring gas that speeds up the process of fruit ripening and flower opening. Please do not place your lilies next to any fruit as they may not open!

3. Prevent pollen stains

The anthers on lily heads are full of pollen and can stain clothes, furniture and fabrics. We'd advise that once your beautiful lilies have bloomed, simply cut away the anthers or remove them with a tissue. If any excess pollen should fall off the lilies, please wait until it has dried and brush away.

4. Lilies are extremely poisonous to pets

Please keep in mind if you own a bouquet with lilies in or plan to buy some for another recipient, they are extremely harmful to pets, especially cats. We'd advise not to bring lilies into any home with pets and to simply chose another bouquet without them, due to their toxic nature.

5. Enjoy the blooms and fragrance

After a day or two of the lilies hydrating in water, the blooms will begin to open. As the blooms open up you can enjoy their gorgeous fragrance (if Oriental or a fragrant lily) which will become more prominent as they open up. Keep the lilies in a cool place out of direct sunlight, change the water every couple of days to help keep the flowers as fresh as possible. If you follow these handy tips then they should last for 7-11 days.

We hope you have found these tips helpful and your beautiful blooms last as long as possible.

PEONIES

Estimated Life Span

Normally 7 - 11 days

Does This Bouquet Arrive In Bud?

Ready to bloom

Is This Bouquet Harmful To Pets?

No

Who doesn't love peonies? These particular blooms are extremely popular during the Summer months and are a favourite for wedding flowers. The delicate pink peony can grow to have a large head and make a stunning display in any home. The most popular type of Peonies are: Sarah Bernhardt, Coral Charm and Mons Julie Elie. Here at Appleyard London, we adore peonies and can't wait for you to experience their true beauty.

 

1. Peonies arrive ready to bloom

Our peonies arrive ready to bloom, meaning they are ready to open up and be displayed proudly in a vase. Each stem may not open at once overnight, but once the stems are trimmed and they are placed in water, they should bloom beautifully.

2. Place in vase with deep water

After carefully unpacking your peonies from their packaging, choose an appropriate vase to display them in. Next, trim 2-3cm from the stems and fill the vase three-quarters full with room temperature water & the flower food included.

3. If stems have not bloomed

Recut the stems and put them in warm water for 24 hours, this should help the peonies to bloom.

4. Wash away the sap

Sometimes the stems can be covered in a sticky sap that can prevent the stem from opening. We would advise to hold the stem upside down with the head pointing down under a running tap of warm water. This can help wash away the sap. After doing this add the peonies back to the vase as per flower instructions and this should help them open.

5. Enjoy your blooms

After a day or two of the peonies hydrating in water, the blooms will begin to open. Keep the peonies in a cool place out of direct sunlight, change the water every couple of days to help keep the flowers as fresh as possible. If you follow these handy tips then they should last for 7-11 days.

HYACINTHS

Estimated Life Span

Normally 7 days

Does This Bouquet Arrive In Bud?

Yes

Is This Bouquet Harmful To Pets?

No

Hyacinths are one of the most vibrant and wonderfully coloured spring flowers, the more commonly seen colours for these gorgeous blooms are white, lavender and blue. Less common colours are yellow, peach, bright red and dark purple. Fresh cut Hyacinths are a beautiful flower to use in arrangements for Spring time and are easy to care for once you know what to do.

 

1. Hyacinths arrive in bud form

When our fresh Hyacinths arrive in bud please don't be alarmed by their lack of initial colour, they are best shipped in this form. The stubby base you see at the bottom of the stem is actually a part of the Hyacinth bulb and doesn't need cutting.

2. Wear gloves if you have sensitive skin

Please be careful when handling the bulb of the Hyacinth as it can cause irritation to sensitive skin. Wearing gloves is a good way to avoid any irritation to sensitive skin.

3. Unwrap and remove bands

When your Hyacinths arrive, unwrap and carefully cut any elastic bands holding the stems together and remove any loose foliage. If you're displaying your Hyacinths in a glass jug or vase you can give the base of the stems a quick rinse if there is any sand or dirt still on the bulbs, make sure to keep the blooms dry.

4. Don't cut the Hyacinths

To ensure long lasting blooms please do not cut the stems of the Hyacinths. The basal plate is best left intact as they will hydrate better and last longer if left uncut in the vase. Although this may seem counterproductive, the stems are best left how they are.

5. Place in clean water

Fill your vase with around 4 inches of cool water, ensure that your chosen vase is tall enough to support the Hyacinths as they are quite top heavy. As the Hyacinths begin to bloom they will become more top heavy so it is important to choose a vase that is tall enough to support their weight as they come in to bloom.

6. Enjoy the blooms and fragrance

After a day of the Hyacinths hydrating in water the blooms will begin to open. Ensure that you have given them enough space to bloom and they aren't packed too closely together. As the blooms open up you can enjoy their gorgeous fragrance which will become more prominent as they open up. Keep your Hyacinths in a cool place out of direct sunlight, change the water every couple of days or so to help keep the flowers as fresh as possible. If you follow these handy tips then they should last up to 7 days.

We hope you have found these tips helpful and your beautiful blooms last as long as possible.

No

The name of the 'Sunflower' may have derived from the flower's similar head shape to the sun. Although Sunflowers require little care, there are some important steps to take to ensure they look their best. They are very thirsty and require lots of water to keep them hydrated, especially in the Summer months. Sunflowers could start to look droopy if they are not in the correct vase or have enough water.

 

1. Sunflowers arrive ready to bloom

Our Sunflowers arrive in bloom meaning they are ready to open up once they have a drink. Please don't be alarmed if they arrive looking a little droopy, this is the best way for us to dispatch them.

2. Remove excess foliage

Sunflowers tend to arrive with more foliage than you would see for another stem. Simply remove any excess foliage/leaves that are not needed.

3. Sunflowers are top heavy

When choosing the appropriate vase, we advise to select a tall vase so the Sunflowers have better support as they are quite top-heavy.

4. Place in plenty of water

Sunflowers need lots of water to keep them looking at their best. Be sure to fill the vase with plenty of water to keep them looking their best and for them to really open up.

Yes

Hydrangeas have long been a popular flowering shrub. There are many varieties of Hydrangea out there, with the most popular including: French Hydrangea, Endless Summer and the Garden Hydrangea. The flowers that bloom on hydrangeas are mostly white, however some species are coloured pink, blue, purple or red. These plants need a lot of hydration to keep them looking their best, so be sure to water them straight away.

 

1. Trim stems

Trim the stems of your bouquet at an angle and select an appropriate vase. Hydrangeas are quite full so we would recommend a wide vase to allow them to bloom beautifully.

2. Place in water straight away

It's important that hydrangea are plunged into water straight away. They are a very thirsty flower and although we package our flowers in hydration boxes, they will need to be unpacked and placed in a vase immediately. Tip: you can also spray the petals with water to keep them hydrated, as they too soak up the water.

3. Ensure they are topped up with water

In Summer months especially, hydrangeas will need their water topping up regularly to ensure they are nice and hydrated.

4. Enjoy the blooms

Once the hydrangea are hydrated in water straight away, the blooms will begin to open. Keep them in a cool place and change the water every day to help keep the flowers as fresh as possible. If you follow these handy tips then they should last for 7 days.

Ready to bloom

Is This Bouquet Harmful To Pets?

No

Carnations, otherwise known as: 'Dianthus Caryophyllus' can last longer than other stems with the right care. Their meaning can vary depending on their colour; pink carnations symbolise 'a Mother's love' and are a popular favourite around Mother's Day. We particularly love the Vintage Carnations here at Appleyard London with their colour blend of pink and cream.

 

1. Unpack and trim

Once you have unpacked your beautiful carnations bouquet, simply trim the stems at an angle by around 2-3cm. Remove any excess leaves below the waterline.

2. Add to vase with flower food

Prepare your vase and ensure it is nice and clean, ready for your bouquet to bloom. Simply place your flowers in room temperature water and fill the vase with the flower food provided.

3. Take care

Ensure the carnations have enough room to bloom and are not packed tightly together in the vase. Some carnation varieties may not look as bright as others. For example, vintage carnations are naturally slightly darker and the petals can look slightly older. However, please note this is purely the vintage-inspired look of the carnations.

4. Enjoy the blooms

After a day or two of the carnations hydrating in water, the blooms will begin to open. Keep the carnations in a cool place out of direct sunlight, change the water every couple of days to help keep the flowers as fresh as possible. If you follow these handy tips then they should last for 7-10 days.

Does This Bouquet Arrive In Bud?

No

Is This Bouquet Harmful To Pets?

Yes

As a popular Springtime favourite, there are over 150 species of tulips with over 3,000 different varieties. Amazingly you can find tulips in almost every colour. Our favourites here at Appleyard are yellow, white & pink. Another fact about tulips is, even when you cut them they continue to grow in your vase. They also bend and twist towards the sunlight. Because of this, we recommend a tall vase to support the long stems.

 

1. Choose the correct vase

As tulips continue to grow after you have trimmed them, we recommend a tall vase to support their growth. It's worth noting the stems may bend due to their nature.

2. Fill your vase

Your chosen vase should be filled with room temperature water and be about two-thirds full. Top the vase with fresh water every 1-2 days to keep them as fresh as possible.

3. Recut the stems more often

Don't worry, you can re-trim the stems once they are too tall. Tulips will continue to grow throughout their vase life, so if they are looking a bit too tall then re-trim the stems another 1-2cm.

4. Enjoy the blooms

After a day or two of the tulips hydrating in water, the blooms will begin to open and grow taller. Keep the tulips in a cool place out of direct sunlight, tulips will naturally bend towards the light so we would encourage rotating the vase every day or so. If you follow these handy tips then they should last for 7 days.

We hope you have found these tips helpful and your beautiful blooms last as long as possible.

 

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS BY PLANT TYPE

 

ORCHID PLANTS

Estimated Life Span

Normally 2 weeks

Does This Plant Arrive In Bud?

Some may arrive in bud

Is This Plant Harmful To Pets?

No

One of our most popular plants at Appleyard. Here you'll find varieties such as: phalaenopsis, vanda, miltonia & wonder orchids. However, these are just a few of the predicted 28,000 species which makes them the largest family of flowering plants. As one of the most popular house plants, they are grown on every continent. By following our care tips below this should prolong the life of your orchid plant.

 

1. Choose the correct vase

As tulips continue to grow after you have trimmed them, we recommend a tall vase to support their growth. It's worth noting the stems may bend due to their nature.

2. Fill your vase

Stand the orchid indoors in a light position, but not in harsh sun: a north, east, or west facing windowsill is ideal. Maintain a temperature of between 18 and 25°C (65-75°F) and don't trap behind closed curtains at night.

3. Recut the stems more often

Don't worry, you can re-trim the stems once they are too tall. Tulips will continue to grow throughout their vase life, so if they are looking a bit too tall then re-trim the stems another 1-2cm.

Orchids will flower for several weeks or more. After flowering, cut back the stem part-way down, just above a node or 'eye', while the stem is still green. New growth will start from this node and should produce some further flowers after 2-3 months. Alternatively, cut the spent stem off at base level and the plant should produce a completely new flowering stem several months later.

4. Be cautious

Protect all surfaces as scratching or staining may occur. Glass containers should not be put in direct sunlight or picked up by the rim. Some plants are toxic / harmful if eaten by humans or animals and may cause skin and eye irritation.

3. Take good care of your plant

This plant can be kept in its existing pot, or replanted into a larger patio planter. If replanting, ensure that the compost and pot drain freely.

The compost should never be allowed to dry out completely, but equally do not allow the tree to become waterlogged. Raising the pot or planter above ground level slightly will help it to drain freely. Add some plant food to the water occasionally between late spring and early autumn to keep the plant in optimum condition.

During hot spells more frequent watering may be needed and this is best done in the morning or evening. Reduce watering in cold weather and do not allow the pot to freeze. On flowering trees and shrubs, remove any dying or damaged flowers or leaves as you see them. The plant can be trimmed either in spring or late summer to maintain its shape. Attention to these instructions is important to prolong the life of the plant in subsequent years.
