Prepare your blooms
Trim the stems & remove excess foliage. Carefully remove discoloured guard petals from roses. For hand tied bouquets, there’s no need to remove the tie holding the flowers together - they’re already arranged and ready to go!
Pick a vase
A wide, full vase works well for larger arrangements, whilst you might want a slim vase for tall stems to add extra support. Top tip: Brighten all the rooms in your home by dividing your bouquet into miniature posy arrangements.
Find a good spot
Flowers are happiest and will thrive in a cool, light location away from draughts, direct heat, sunshine or fresh fruit. Draughts, high temperatures, and direct sunlight can cause your flowers to dry out and wilt more quickly than they should. Flowers are also sensitive to ethylene gas which is released from fruit.
Keep your blooms fresh for longer
Retrim the stems every couple of days and replace the water in the vase to keep your blooms fresh and healthy. Bacteria can build up as flowers sit in water, so changing the water prevents this from affecting the flowers.
