How do I look after my Fabulous Flowers?
For best results we recommend the following:
IF YOU ARE RECEIVING FLOWERS IN DRY BOXES
Unpack the flower boxes and take the bunches out and remove the wet foot bag at the base of the stems but leave the wrapping materials and sleeves on.
Cut with a sharp blade approximately 5cm or 2” from the base of the stems.
Remove excess foliage if any before placing the flower bunch in buckets of 15cm or 6" of clean water mixed with a flower hydrating additive.
The flowers will need up to 12 hours in a cool area to be fully rehydrated. A temperature of 5 degrees Celsius is ideal.
After 6 hours of the rehydration process you can gently remove the wrapping materials, but leave the sleeves on until the flowers are fully rehydrated. Do not lift the roses out of the water at any point during the re-hydration process.
Your flowers will be ready to sell!
IF YOU ARE RECEIVING FLOWERS IN WET BUCKETS
If the flowers arrive cooled and hydrated, keep them chilled and remove any remaining wrapping materials as soon as possible. Leave the outer sleeves on until you need the flowers for an arrangement.
Check the level of solution and top up if necessary, as they require a lot of solution.
If you need them to open slowly for an event at a later point, leave the stems for a bit longer in cold storage for 3-4 days, but remember to change the water every 2 days and check the water level regularly. Make sure that all wrapping materials and sleeves are off when you decide to store them longer to avoid any potential condensation on the flowers.
Your flowers will be extra ready to sell!
THE HYDRATING SOLUTION SHOULD ALWAYS BE MIXED AS PER INSTRUCTIONS.
DO NOT OVERDOSE THE FLOWERS WITH HYDRATING SOLUTION.
BUCKETS AND CONTAINERS SHOULD BE STERILE AND REGULARLY WASHED.
