Keeping a bouquet beautiful for longer is easy to influence yourself, with simple care tips. Which we would like to share with you. You will receive 6 care tips, so that you can fully enjoy the bouquet!
1. This is how the bouquet arrives safely at its destination
Make sure to wrap the bouquet carefully. This prevents damage to the beautiful bouquet. You also protect the bouquet against heat or cold in this way. Did you order the bouquet from us? No worries, our Bloompost professional florists always provide the right packaging and protection against the heat or cold.
2. Chop, cut or cut?
Take care of your bouquet with love. Do not chop the stems, but cut them diagonally with a knife or flower scissors. This ensures that the letterbox flowers can absorb enough water. When you chop or cut the stem splits and the opposite happens. Your flowers dry out. Do this even if the florist has already cut them diagonally, because the stems can dry out on the way home. As a result, the flowers will absorb less water.
Tip: cut a piece off the stem every 3 to 4 days. This way the bouquet will stay longer and you can enjoy it even longer. Also clean the vase immediately and add a new bag of cut flower food. Ask the florist for an extra bag of nutrition.
Tip: Do the roses start to ‘hang’ after a few days? Then they get too little water. Cut the stems diagonally again, so that they can absorb enough water. The rose will soon bloom beautifully again.
3. Watch the leaves!
Remove any leaves that will be submerged. You do this because otherwise the leaves can rot. Flowers are also not able to withstand the bacteria that then end up in the water.
4. A fitting and clean vase
Get the new bouquet off to a good start. With a clean vase you prevent bacteria from getting to the flowers immediately. Your bouquet also likes to have enough space. So do not stuff the stems together, but make sure you have a suitable vase with enough space.
Tip: Preferably choose a glass vase. Bacteria are less likely to attach themselves to this.
5. Quickly into the water
When you come home with fresh letterbox gifts of flowers or the bouquet has just been delivered, it is important that the flowers are placed in a vase as soon as possible. It is best to do this with cold tap water and the right amount of cut flower food. There is always a bag of cut flower food with the Fleurop bouquets. Always add this and check the packaging for the correct ratio. Now it is time to enjoy the beautiful bouquet.
Tip: Use the supplied cut flower food or ask the florist about it. The food keeps the bouquet beautiful for up to 60% longer!
6. Pick a good spot
Of course you want the flowers to last as long as possible. But how do you do that? Make sure to avoid the following locations. The flowers will not improve if you place them in a draft or near the heating. As a result, they evaporate more moisture than they absorb. Also next to the fruit bowl is not the best place for flowers. This is because fruit produces ethylene gas. Which causes flowers to age quickly.
