  • Fill your vase 2/3 full with cool water to help any closed buds start to open up and add your flower food.
  • Remove any foliage below the water level to avoid bacteria build-up.  Our florists will have done most of this for you, but some maintenance may be required as all vases are different.
  • Carefully with a knife, trim all stems at about a 45 degree angle about an inch from the bottom.
  • Ensure that your flowers are in a cool area away from major heat sources, windows, and radiators.
  • Empty, clean, and thoroughly rinse the vase followed by refilling it with water and adding flower food as needed.
