How to take the best care of your Cut Flowers and Body Flowers

Fresh Bouquets & Floral Arrangements

If the flowers are arranged in floral foam, which most will be, all you have to do is add water daily; the foam acts as a preservative to prolong the life of the flowers. Place in a cool location away from heat and drafts. Keep in a cool place overnight.

Cut Flowers

Four Important Steps to Follow:

  • Cut stems straight across or slantwise using flower cutters or a sharp knife. Do not use scissors. Cut stems under water that is fresh, clean and warm (100 - 110 degs. F). Garden flowers and tropicals should be cut in tepid water (80 - 100 degs. F).

  • Transfer cut flowers to a vase or container filled with water at the appropriate temperature. Remove all foliage that will be below the water line.

  • If you are using special cut flower preservatives to prolong the life of your flowers and arrest bacterial growth in the water, follow package instructions. Add water to the container as needed and replenish solution every 1-2 days. If you're not using preservatives, change the water, scrub the container clean and re-cut flower stems daily.

  • Place arranged flowers in a cool location, especially at night. Keep away from heat sources, drafts and air conditioners.

Body Flowers (Corsages)

Wearing flowers for daytime or evening occasions is both fashionable and fun. Body flowers (corsages) can be worn on the wrist or in the hair. Wear them on a collar, on the waist or on the shoulder. Wear them on a purse. But remember, always wear them the way the flowers grow: blossoms up, stems down. Guard your flowers carefully against sudden exposures to cold air. In very cold weather, carry your body flowers in a box. Put them on after you arrive for the festivities. And, remember, too much handling bruises delicate petals and stems. To keep your Body Flowers fresh and bright for a second day, cover with wet cotton or a thin wet cloth; refrigerate in the florists box. (Orchids are the exception. Unwind the stem wrapping and place the orchid stem in water. Keep in a cool place, out of drafts, but not in the refrigerator.) Let us style your Body Flowers in the newest fashion trends ... in colours and designs that accentuate your clothing and the occasion.
