Dear Hazel: Just a quick one to say that the bouquet for our Ruby wedding anniversary yesterday was beautiful - perfect, in fact - and has been much admired since (and not least by the ladies who were lunching down at the other end of the restaurant!) Thank you for taking the time and trouble to make it up and deliver it. It really elevated the occasion, and I hope I will be able to use your services again. With grateful appreciation.

Called late on a Saturday evening to order something potted for a friend. The lady with whom I spoke was lovely, very helpful and offered several suggestions before I opted for a two stem orchid. The beautiful flowering plant was gift wrapped and decorated with twigs, just as described, before being promptly delivered. Highly recommended *****. Ken, Dublin

Tips - Caring for your flowers once they are delivered

Placing your flowers in vase half to two thirds full with lukewarm water, will help closed buds to start opening.

  • Be careful when un-wrapping a hand-tied bouquet as it is delivered in a water bubble to keep the flowers fresh.
  • Arranging your flowers in cold water should be avoided as this can reduce the their life in the vase.
  • Avoid puting flowers in metal or aluminium containers - glass is ideal. Keep your flowers in a cool location, away from draughts, direct heat or sunlight. Arrange once unwrapped
  • Your flowers may take up to 24 hours after being placed in water to reach their full potential.
  • Strip off all excess foliage and leaves below the water level to reduce any harmful bacteria within the water.
  • Bacteria can block the stem and stop the flowers taking up the water.unwrap. Flowers like their stems trimmed. So, trim them, at an angle with a knife (rather than scissors) by an inch or so. When trimming stems, always cut at an angle of roughly 45degrees; this increases the surface area allowing your flowers to absorb more water.
  • If a Rose starts to droop at the head, re-cut the stem, wrap the head in paper to support it upright and plunge 5cms of the stem into boiling water for about 30seconds. Cut the stem again and place in deep cold water for two hours.trim

Most orders are accompanied by a sachet of cut flower food which will encourage buds to open and help to prolong the life and beauty of your flowers. Top up regularly with water and flower food, removing any fading flowers. Ensure the floristry foam used in arrangements is moist and topped up daily; this helps to prolong the life and vibrancy of your arrangements.
