Flower Care

Flowers Central Recommends a Few Tips for Caring for your Flowers ~

  1. It is recommended that your flowers be delivered (two to three days before the event) to an address where someone can receive and care for them. Please be sure someone is present at your shipping address to receive the flowers as all of our deliveries require a signature.
  2. It is very important to bring your flowers indoor as soon as they are delivered. If this is not immediately possible, make sure you place your flowers box in a cool place. Flowers should be stored at room temperature as long as they are kept away from heat or cold sources and out of direct sunlight.
  3. Before you unpack your flowers, choose a work area that includes a table or counter top and a floor that can resist water. Have handy, a set of shears and several empty containers.
  4. When you are ready to arrange your flowers, open the box/es and begin by removing the flowers bunch by bunch. Without removing the plastic wrappers protecting the flower buds, remove all other packaging materials from the box/es. Keep in mind that each bunch has several flowers (in the case of roses 25 roses per bunch).
  5. Prepare containers/buckets by filling them with room temperature water. Immediately after your flowers arrive, pour in and mix the enclosed floral food packets provided with each flower order. The floral food has been shown to increase the life of fresh flowers by several days. Save a few packets for when you change the water in a few days.
  6. Cut each stem one inch from the bottom. Place the flowers in water immediately after cutting them. Re-cutting flower stems from time to time is important ( every two days), as stem tips may be incapable of transporting water to the flower over time.
  7. Be sure to remove any leaves that fall below the water line to prevent bacteria from forming. Floral food provided and enclosed with each order will also help to limit bacteria growth.
  8. Place flowers in your prepared water-filled containers. Ideally, the plastic wrappers should be kept while the flowers are hydrating. Hydration occurs anywhere between six to eight hours.
  9. To ensure longer lasting flowers, continue to keep them out of direct sunlight and away from heat. Change the water and cut flower stems one inch every other day. Each time you change the water, add more floral food and be sure that no leaves sit below the water level.
  10. With the passage of time, give your roses a refresh every couple of days by gently removing discolored or drooping petals from your flowers.
