Caring for your flowers



 
Flower Tips...Always
 
  • Cut the stems at an angle and remove any leaves below the water level. This is so leaves don't decompose and ruin the water.

  • Prepare a clean vase filled with warm water and flower food underneath.

  • Water the plant constantly and change its water each week.

  • Don't use metal containers as this can hinder the plant in obtaining food.

  • Keep away from draughts, fruit and radiators. The cooler the room the longer the flowers will last.

 
Note: Flowers should never be out of water for more than a few hours.

Caring for Plants
 
 
 

Carnations
Always cut carnations at an angel between the joints, and always remember to remove lower leaves.

 
 
Foliage
Always make sure that you keep the foliage wet.
 
 

Lilies
Remember to pluck out stamens which contain pollen, as it can stain clothes and may trigger allergies.

 
 
Mixed bouquets
These will benefit from being stood in deep water for a few hours prior to arranging.
 
 
Stand the roses in one inch of boiling water for 30 seconds. This will stop the roses from drooping!
 

Roses
These will benefit from being stood in deep water for a few hours prior to arranging.

PLEASE NOTE - a characteristic of these roses is a dark tinge on the petals, this occurs naturally with this variety and is not a flaw.

  1. PCut the stems at an angle and remove any leaves below the water level. This is so leaves don't decompose and ruin the water.

  2. Prepare a clean vase filled with warm water and flower food underneath. 

  3. IMPORTANT FOR POSTAL ROSES -Stand the roses in one inch of boiling water for 30 seconds then remove and place into your prepared vase, so that rose heads remain erect.

For Longer life:

  • Water the plant constantly and change its water each week.
  • Don't use metal containers as this can hinder the plant in obtaining food.

  • Keep away from draughts, fruit and radiators. The cooler the room the longer the flowers will last.

 
 

Oriental Orchids (cut Dendrobium Orchid flowers)
Always make sure to keep orchids in water. If they are wilted when you get them put them in cold water for about 15 minutes. After put them in a clean vase with warm water and flower food on the bottom. Orchids should be kept in room temperature conditions (35 Degrees Celsius).

 
 

Longiflorum Lilies:

Lilies should be in a long vase which should be able to hold their length.

  • To extend Vase life re-cut the stems every 4-5 days.

Lily pollen can damage clothing, we recommend removing the pollen stamens, this will also prolong vase life. Use sellotape to remove pollen, not water which will fix the stain.

 

Bird of Paradise:

  • These flowers ooze sap which can make the flowers sticky; this sap can be wiped away carefully.

Pull away wilted crests and new ones will come up from inside the 'beak'.

 

Anthuriums:

  • Handle these flowers with extreme care
  • Lay in room temperature water for 10 mins to rehydrate from post.
  • Don't place in direct sunlight, change water and cut stems regularly.
  • Keep these flowers at room temperature.
 

Twisted Bamboo:

Bamboo is tough and very easy to look after, perfect for a busy lifestyle!

  • Keep the bamboo in 1-2 inches of regularly changed water, keep out of direct sunlight and never cut the stems. The Bamboo will last a very long time and will gradually sprout new leaves. Bamboo is known for its ability to grow very fast.
 

Passiflora (passion flower)

This fast-growing plant is native to Brazil where it grows quickly as a vine, clinging to anything it can! This plant needs plenty of heat, sun and exposure to air to do well, so choose a bright position and lightly spray this plant at least once a day during warm weather, watering regularly.

During the summer, this plant should be put outside in the shade. In winter, this plant should be allowed to rest in a cooler position and only watered once a week or so. You should note that Passion Flowers will flower best if they are kept with their roots quite restricted. You should really try to repot only when it's absolutely necessary.

 
Zantedeschia (calla lily, arum lily)

This slow-growing houseplant is native to South Africa and grows best in light, slightly 'marshy' conditions! This plant likes to be kept somewhere reasonably warm and bright, but not necessarily in direct sunlight. It needs moist air and so you should stand it, ideally, on wet gravel.

 Don't put this plant near anything that dries out the air such as a radiator or electrical equipment.  Keep out of draughts, and keep well watered during the flowering period. As with most other plants you should reduce its water intake.  Once the flowers have gone over, cut back the plant and allow it to rest for a couple of months before encouraging it to reflower with more water and plant food.

 
Anthurium (flamingo flower, painter's palette)

This slow growing houseplant is from Central and South America and likes 'jungle-like conditions'! This plant likes to be kept somewhere reasonably warm and bright, but doesn't need direct sunlight. It needs moist air to keep it's leaves and flowers in peak condition, so mist frequently, and stand the pot on wet gravel. Don't put this plant near anything that dries out the air such as a radiator or electrical equipment.  Keep out of draughts, and keep well watered during the flowering period. As with most other plants you should reduce its water intake.

 
Phalaenopsis Orchid (moth orchid)

In the wild, orchids grow on trees and use their roots to cling to branches and not for food intake. You should take care of orchids by putting them into bark pieces so that their roots can hold on to the bark. The roots should be exposed to sunlight once in a while.

The leaves and roots need a fairly regular amount of watering.  In the Spring and Summer, you should feed the Orchid with plant food every two weeks. Like nearly all plants this plant needs less water in the Winter.

After the flowers have faded, cut back the flower stem to just below the point at which the flowers started from. After a few weeks, encourage the plant to reflower by feeding again and increase watering. This might take a while, but the results are encouraging and the flowers come back.

 
Spathiphyllum (peace lily)

This quick growing houseplant is from Central and South America and likes 'boggy' conditions! This plant needs damp, cool conditions, not a lot of sunlight, and a lot of water. The interesting thing about this flower is that it tells you when it needs watering by having its leaves droop. Keep this flower from electrical appliances and radiators.

 
Begonia

Begonias should be kept in a warm, humid spot, in a bright position but not direct sunlight. A windowsill where light is filtered through a curtain would be perfect. Always water into the saucer the pot is resting in to prevent root rot. This plant doesn't need that much water, although it prefers damp conditions. Remember to drain away any excess water and to feed it with fertiliser every few weeks in the Summer.

 
Guzmania

Guzmanias need filtered light, warmth and humidity all year round. You should water this plant plenty of times and during the Spring and Summer months it would help to fill it with weak fertiliser.

The cup which is formed at the base of the central rosette of the leaves should be  regularly watered, especially during the summer.
