On receipt of your
flowers, please make sure that you cut your stems at a 45 degree angle
(known as an oblique cut in the industry) before placing in clean water
and a flower food sachet.
Your flowers will only
take what water they require up their stem, therefore you must cut every
two to three days to allow the flower to replenish its store of water
and nutrients, remembering to also change and use clean water at the
same time with flower food.
Most problems affecting
the flowers life can be put down to the above lack of care.
An old florists tip to
keep your long stem Tulip's and Gerbera's 'straight' is to wrap your
bunch in one sheet of old newspaper and straight into a bucket of water
and place in a cool & darkened room for an hour or two.
Please never forget to
enjoy your flowers, they are a living thing ...
