Flower care

From the grower to our shop, to you – our reputation rides on delivering the very best product. 

Flowers don't last forever but these tips will keep them looking their best for as long as possible:

  1. Clean your vase with soapy water to remove any bacteria or fungi that might ruin your flowers.

  2. Use warm water and let it sit for a few minutes so all the air bubbles can escape.

  3. Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle, under running water if possible. This creates a wide opening to the xylem (where the flowers drink up water) and keeps air bubbles to a minimum so they don't block the water pathways.

  4. Keep away from the fruit bowl. Fruit produces ethylene, which tells a plant to ripen, and this will shorten the life span of your flowers.

  5. Place in a cool position. If you're leaving the house for a day or two, you can put your flowers in the fridge (away from fruit). The cold reduces microbial growth and the metabolic rate of your flowers, extending their life!

  6. Keep away from direct sunlight, drafts, and air-conditioning.

  7. Maintain adequate water levels and change the water and wash out the vase with soapy water completely every two days. Normal dish wash detergent is fine.

 

If you feel your Bloomerie flowers didn’t arrive in the best condition or have not lasted at least 3 days let us know within this time by calling 022-6451588. Once we’re confident that they have been cared for as recommended, we will happily replace the flowers.
