Flower Care Guide

How to keep your cut flowers fresh for a long time?

We, at Ferns N Petals, understand the sentiments behind gifting flowers and that is why we take extra care to present nothing, but the best flowers to you. Flowers are delicate but with the right kind of care, you may enjoy your blooms for 3-4 days.

We take care to pick the best blooms every morning, and ensure that they are well hydrated and packed with utmost care before they reach your doorstep.

  • Flowers may be delivered in fully bloomed, semi-bloomed or bud stage.

  • When your flowers arrive in a bunch form, remove the packing and allow them to breathe. Put them in a vase with clean water. Cut about 2 cms of the bottom of each flower stem and remove leaves which are below the water line. This step is very important as it helps in better absorption of water and essential nutrients.

  • Take care of the water and flower food requirements. These are the two important requirements that can help in keeping the cut flowers fresh for a significant amount of time. Before changing the existing water, you need to clean the vase properly. Pour room temperature water with the right quantity of flower food (if available) into the flower vase.

  • Further, do ensure that there is no debris, dirt or other unwanted items in the water like dried fallen leaves, stem parts, and others. This is because it could lead to bacterial growth that can affect the lifespan and health of the flower to a great extent.

  • When your flowers arrive in an arrangement form i.e., flowers are fixed on to a floral foam, then you just need to ensure that the foam remains wet throughout the day. For this just pour water on the foam so that the foam is completely hydrated. In the case of an arrangement, you don?t need to cut the stems.

  • Keep flowers away from sunlight, heating or cooling vents, direct drafts from a ceiling fan and the tops of televisions or radiators. These can cause the flowers to dry/wilt quickly.

  • Enjoy your flowers!
