We also have information on arranging your cut flowers however many of our bouquets will arrive pre-arranged so you can just pop them straight into a clean vase.

When you have received our beautiful bouquet of cut flowers in the post, simply follow these basic care suggestions and you will be rewarded with beautiful blooms for longer:
If some of the heads on your roses start to droop, wrap them in paper, re-cut the stems and plunge the bottom two inches of the stems into boiling water for approx 30 seconds. Cut the stems again and place in deep cold water for approx 2 hours.
Lily stems can be placed in warm water to encourage the flowers to open. If you are worried about pollen stains on your clothes and furniture you can gently remove the stamens from your lilies in your bouquet, once they have opened. If you do get pollen on your clothes or furniture don't rub the affected area as this could cause a permanent stain! Simply use the nozzle on your hoover or some sellotape to pick up the pollen spores straight off the fabric.
You can revive dendrobium orchid stems by immersing them in cool water for 10-15 minutes if they are a bit wilted. To encourage buds further up the stems to open remove faded flowers from lower down. Dendrobium orchids are happy being kept in a warm room temperature.
Freesias are thirsty flowers so make sure they are topped up with fresh water daily to encourage a longer shelf life. You can also encourage continued flowering by removing faded flower heads.
