How to condition and prepare flowers
Step 1. Unbox blooms
Your box will contain flowers wrapped in cellophane and sealed with a satin ribbon, flower food and an arranging guide with easy step-by-step instructions on how to arrange and prepare your new blooms.
Step 2. Remove leaves
Remove any damaged or wilted leaves. Also remove any leaves that are below the vase water line. Excess leaves takes energy from the flower heads which leads to the flower dying sooner and leaves in the water causes bacteria growth in the water. As the amount of bacteria on the vase increases, it grows closest to the main food source - the base of the stem. Eventually the bacteria will overgrow the cut and clog the stem up.
Step 3. Trim the stems
Cut about 1-2 inches of the bottom of the stems before placing them in the water. Even though your flowers have been neatly trimmed before they leave our studio, they always need a fresh cut since they seal up very quickly being out of water.
Step 4. Water
Choose a vase that is about 2/3 the height of the flowers and clean it out properly with soap. Fill it half up with cool fresh water.
