WILL I RECEIVE THE SAME AS THE PRODUCT PICTURED?
We choose the best daily blooms available, therefore, flower varieties change from day to day. The picture on the website represents the size and overall finish of the design. We will construct the same size/value design in the colour scheme of your choice, using the days best blooms. All flower arrangements are arranged into a plastic or glass vase (depending on the product) and presented in our signature re-usable cotton bags.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY FLOWERS?
Arrangements in containers/vases – top up with water daily. Do not change the water as it has flower food in all of our container arrangements.
Flowers for vases - cut 2cm off the ends, with sharp secateurs, at an angle. Immediately place in fresh water. Repeat this every 3 days. Take off the leaves that will be under the water. Keep flowers out of direct sun, draughts and heaters. Take the stamens out of your lilies when you first see them appear or they will stain the flower. Keep lilies away from cats as they are toxic to them.
