Our care tips for long-lasting enjoyment
✔ USE A FRESHLY CLEANED VASE
The basis for a long flower life is a really clean vase. Even invisible residues can cause the water quality in the vase to deteriorate quickly, as bacteria start to form more quickly. Ideally, you should clean your vases in the dishwasher. If this is not possible, clean the flower vase well with washing-up liquid and a sponge. Before arranging the flowers in the vase, you should cut them fresh again.
✔ CUT THE FLOWERS EVERY 2 DAYS
Cut the stems of the flowers immediately after receipt with a smooth knife, as this allows them to absorb water. Important: Please do not use scissors, as this will bruise the stems too much.
Flowers with soft stems should be cut straight (e.g. tulips, gerberas, gladioli)
Hard stems should always be cut at an angle (e.g. sunflowers, lilies, roses)
For wood and branches, first remove some of the bark and then tap the stem wide with a hammer. This breaks the membrane and the plant can absorb the water better (e.g. lilacs, hydrangeas, forsythia)
For species that contain milky sap, you should briefly hold the ends of the stem in hot water or over a match flame so that the milky sap coagulates (e.g. poppies, wolfsbane).e.g. poppies, spurges, bluebells)
✔FILL FLOWERFRESH INTO THE WATER
Flower24 delivers each bouquet with a sachet of flowerfresh. Add the powder to the fresh water and your bouquet will be optimally supplied with important nutrients.
✔ REMOVE THE LEAVES THAT COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE VASE WATER
Bleaves in the water reduce the water quality. To ensure that the bouquet feels good over a longer period of time, you should therefore remove all leaves that could come into contact with the vase water.
✔ BEWARE OF THE RIGHT LOCATION
A bouquet of flowers likes it cool and dry and will thank you with longer freshness. Avoid a place in direct sunlight or near a heater, as well as near fresh fruit.
✔ ALWAYS REFILL WITH ENOUGH FRESH WATER
Your bouquet needs a sufficient amount of water at all times to prevent individual flowers from drying out.
