Blunt tools will crush the flower stem reducing its ability to uptake water and deliver it to the flower head. Bacteria will shorten the lifespan of your flowers – ensure all your tools are clean and sanitised.
Use the flower food we give you – It really works! It contains sugar to feed your flowers, an acidic preservative to balance the PH of the water and a disinfectant to kill any bacteria.
When the foliage sits in the water it promotes bacterial growth which in turn will shorten the lifespan of your flowers
DON’T DELAY! This removes bacteria and increases the surface area of the end of the stem which allows for a steady uptake of water all the way to the flower head.
Any direct air flow (such as drafts, fans, or air conditioning) will reduce the lifespan of your flowers by dehydration.

Fresh fruit releases ethylene gas and speeds up the ageing process.
Change water daily, add flower food, cut stems & remove any expired blooms.
