Cut flowers: care tips

Find out from Fleurop professionals here how to keep your cut flowers fresh for even longer:

  • Cut flowers from the Fleurop flower shop are always sold or delivered ready to put in the vase.

  • If you do not receive your flowers in this condition, remove any leaves that would touch the water when you arrange them as well as extraneous side shoots, over-abundant foliage and damaged leaves and blossoms.

  • Then cut each stem diagonally with a sharp knife (not with scissors).

  • Choose an absolutely clean vase that is tall enough. As a rule, one third of the stems should be in the water.

  • Place the flowers in cool (never ice-cold) water.

  • Add floral preservative to the water, never use sugar or similar substances instead. Sugar encourages rotting.

  • Find a cool, draught-free position if possible. If this is not possible during the day, treat your flowers to a cool place overnight at least.

  • When choosing a position, avoid  bright sunlight, anywhere close to radiators or fruit, or anywhere behind glass.

  • If there is floral preservative in the water, top up the water daily.

  • If you are not using floral preservative, you should change the water every day.

  • Take this opportunity to cut the flower stems again and clean the vase.

A propos cleaning the vase: the vase has to be really free of germs and should also be free of soap residues. For this reason, you should clean vases - e. g. vases from Fleurop - in the dishwasher if possible. Tip: Kukident or Corega Tabs also work well. Just place a tablet in the vase with fresh water, leave to act overnight and rinse.
