Flower Care

Floral Affairs want you to get the most smiles & enjoyment out of your fresh flowers!
Here are some Floral Affairs tips on keeping your flowers looking as fresh as possible for the longest time.

For bouquets, bunches & cut flowers: 

  • Cut the stems about 2 cms on a sharp angle. This increases the volume ratio so your flowers can drink more water.
  • Add the complimentary preservative sachet into a clean vase filled with freshwater and allow a moment for the crystals to dissolve.
  • Strip away any leaves that would be below the waterline of your vase.
  • Place flowers in a vase
  • Top up daily with fresh water
  • Keep away from draughts, direct sunlight and heat.
  • Repeat this process every two days so that your flowers can keep drinking water.
  • As your flowers get shorter over time, place them into a shorter vase or container. \

For flowers that are arranged in a box, pot or basket with floral foam:

  • Check the level of water in the foam regularly.
  • Top up the container with fresh water daily.
  • If your flowers are beginning to droop, take them out of the foam, cut the stems substantially at the point where the stems are still green.
  • Place them back into the foam, or get creative and re-arrange the whole arrangement or feel free to place your freshly cut stems into a vase for longer life.
