Caring for your bouquet

- Top up the water regularly and change it completely every 2 to 3 days. Trim 2cm off the stems, removing any spent blooms and foliage during this period.
- Place the vase in a cool, draft-free position, away from direct sunlight and fruit, avoiding extreme changes in temperature and do not place the vase on top of heat-generating appliances such as fridges and microwave ovens.
Caring for your boxed arrangement
- Leave the flowers in the florist’s foam/container that they arrived in.
- Check the water level daily and top up with water mixed with the flower food sachet provided.
- Cut off any spent blooms and foliage to keep the arrangement looking fresh.
