Flower Care



Fill a clean vase with lukewarm water. Flowers do not like cold water.

Refresh the water in the vase every two days and keep the vase nice and clean.

Re-cut the stems approximately 2 – 3 cm on an angle under water with sharp scissors.

Flowers will bloom better in a cool place so keep them away from draughts, extreme heat and electrical appliances such as microwaves, televisions, computers and heaters.

Remove any dead flower heads or leaves, this will help to prolong the life of the remaining flowers and promote other buds opening.


Orchids like to be soaked in lukewarm water – aim for a minimum 3 hours. Fully immerse the petal and stems in the water.

Don’t leave the orchid in a cold room. They prefer a mild, humid environment.

Water once a week and allow the soil to dry out a little before watering again.


Adapt the philosophy of ‘Treat them mean, keep them keen!’

Give 30ml of water or a light mist spray once a fortnight and your orchids will last longer then you think.


Remove all leaves that sit below the water line in the clean vase.
Cut stems on an angle about 2 – 3 cm – this will assist the roses to drink properly, do not bruise or flatten the stems by using blunt utensils.
Use lukewarm water so the stems can draw up oxygen easily.

Gently remove any discoloured outside petals
Change the water in the vase every second day. Continue to remove old outer petals from the rose head to allow the rose to fully open.
