When you receive flowers from us, please remember to:
Special Instructions for:
Carnations are normally sent out whilst very young and still in bud, ready to open at home for maximum longevity. Never cut on the joints of the stems.
To encourage extra flowering, pinch off dead or dying flower blooms, just as you would do in your garden. Freesias need lots of water, so keep topping up the vase.
Lilies are usually sent out in bud, ready to open at home for maximum longevity.
Lilies require tall vases to support the weight of the stems. Lily pollen can stain clothing, furniture or worktops - you can remove the stamens to avoid this if you like. However, if pollen does fall onto a surface it is best removed decliately with sellotape. Lily pollen can be dangerous to cats and other household pets.
To stop the roses from drooping, after cutting the stems stand them in one inch of boiling water for 30 seconds before placing them in a vase as fresh lukewarm water.
A characteristic on some roses is a dark tinge on the outer protective petals - this occurs naturally during transit and is not a flaw. Simply remove these petals from the roses to enjoy their full beauty!
Oriental Dendrobium Orchids
These tropical flowers will stay at their best when you follow the instructions below:
If your Orchids are wilted on arrival, simply submerge the whole Orchid sprays for a maximum of 10-15 mins in cool tap water. Be sure to untangle the stems with care, trim up to 5cm off the stems at an angle and place the flowers in a clean vase of water with the flower food provided. Dying flowers can be continually removed to enocourage more to bloom.
