We sometimes deliver our flowers in bud to ensure you can watch them bloom and enjoy them for as long as possible. To get the most out of your bouquet, follow the care guide below and allow a few days to bloom.

Flowers naturally wilt at times. To prevent this and protect your flowers, we recommend avoiding direct heat and drafts and removing any sad looking flowers to keep your bunch looking fresh.

Step 4: Change the water and add flower food every 2-3 days to keep them looking fresh.

Step 4: Make sure that the outside of the container is dry before displaying your arrangement. Use a suitable mat to protect furniture.
Step 5: Check the water level in the arrangement every few days and top up with cool fresh water as required with the second sachet of flower food.
