Caring for Your Flowers
At Bloomin' Marvellous we pride ourselves on giving our customers the very best in quality in flowers. Flowers being a living natural product are affected by a number of different conditions, both environmental and by the post harvest care offered.
We offer a few tips on getting the most from your flowers:
- If flowers are arranged in florist's foam, top up with clean water daily, taking care not to overfill.
- If you have received cut flowers, trim stems diagonally about 2cm from the base prior to placing in clean water. Take special care to remove all leaves that will be underwater, as they contain bacteria that may quickly proliferate and spoil the water.
- Position flowers away from draughts, direct heat and sunlight. Do not place them on heat generating appliances such as TVs and microwave ovens.
- As some flowers will last longer than others, carefully remove spent blooms, especially if other flowers in your display are still alive.
