How do I look after flowers in a box?
If you have received your roses while at the office, they can be left in the box with the water vials until you arrive home.

Once you are ready to put your roses in a vase, follow these simple instructions:-
  • Remove gift-wrapping and any water vials from the roses if they have them.
  • Choose a vase. Preferably tall enough to showcase the roses. Add fresh water up to three quarters full.
  • Cut approximately 1cm off the stems of the green foliage first and place in vase to create a framework in which to position the roses.
  • Cut approximately 1cm off each rose stem with sharp scissors at an angle and then place them into the vase.
  • Place your flowers in a cool, draft free position, away from afternoon sunlight.
  • If flowers begin to wilt, recut the stems, clean the vase and refill with fresh water.

How do I look after roses that have been delivered in a vase or arrangement?
Simply top up the water and check it every day. Top it up as necessary. Roses need plenty of water. If your flowers are in a glass vase and the water looks discoloured after a few days, remove the flowers, clean the vase and fill with fresh water. Trim 1 centimetre from stems and replace in vase.

ENJOY!!
