If you have received a bunch of flowers, giving them the proper care can ensure they last longer.

Getting the most out of your flowers:

– Re-cut 2-3cm of the bottom of the stem when you receive the flowers

– Put straight into water in a clean vase

– Change the water every 2 days at least. – You may want to re-cut the stems at this time as well to encourage them to drink, as the cells at the original cut will be loosing their efficiency by now.

– If you received floral preservative or ‘flower food’ with your flowers, be sure to add this

– Keep away from draughts and direct sun.
