You can generally expect your flowers to last from 4 – 7 days provided they are cared for correctly.
6 main steps will help your flowers to last longer:
- Stems should be cut on an angle with sharp scissors or secateurs (in or under running water if possible) as soon as you receive the flowers
- Ensure the vase that is used is clean and filled with fresh room temperature water
- Always keep an eye on the water levels and change the water completely every two days and recut the stems (this helps with the uptake of water)
- As some flowers last longer than others – remove any spent blooms, remove any leaves that may have fallen below the water line, as this will lead to bacteria growth in the vase water
- By keeping the flowers away from animals, drafts, heat pumps, direct heat, sunlight and also away from the fruit bowl will help extend the longevity of your blooms
- Boxed or vase arrangement, check the arrangement daily. Add water as needed, taking care not to overfill
If you feel the flowers have not lasted for at least three days let us know within this time by calling (03) 6331 5835. Once we are confident that they have been cared for as recommended, we will happy replace the flowers or provide with a gift voucher.
Please note that we may firstly request a photo of the flowers and surrounds and can only replace them if we are able to pick up the old flowers at the same time as we deliver the replacements. Replacement flowers will not be sent if the original goods have been disposed of or images have not been produced.
We are always available on (03) 6331 5835 to answer any of your concerns or questions regarding the care of your flowers.
Caring for Plants
– Keep in a well lit room, but out of direct sunlight
– Water approximately once a week
Indoor plants prefer to be kept out of direct sunlight, but thrive in a well lit room. They can dry out easily with heaters or air conditioners, so misting plants with water regularly will help create some humidity. The bathroom can be an ideal room to help increase moisture.
If a plant displays some yellowing in the leaves, it is generally a sign of over, or under watering. As a general rule, plants like to be watered once a week by watering over a sink, so that the water runs out of the drainage holes. The best way to tell is if you insert your finger into the potting mix – if it is damp, it won’t need watering. Always ensure that plants are able to drain any excess water away from the soil.
