Flower Care & Handling
Keep your flowers in a cool place until you can get them in a flower food solution. Don’t forget how important it is to follow the mixing directions on the flower food packet.
Fill a clean (washed with a detergent or antibacterial cleaning solution), deep vase with water and add flower food.
Remove leaves that will be below the water line. Leaves in water will promote bacterial microbial growth that may limit water uptake by the flower.
Re-cut stems at an angle by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife or garden scissors.
Place the flowers in the vase solution you’ve prepared.
Refresh the water every couple of days and follow the same procedure as described above.
