Take care when removing the cellophane. This is sometimes used as a resevoir for water to keep your bouquet fresh during delivery. Cut the stems at an angle about 3cms from the end. Place in deep water and stand in a cool shady place for an hour or more. Fill a vase with water, add flower food and place the flowers into the vase. Keep your flowers in a cool location away from draughts, direct heat and sunlight. Top up regularly with water and food. Some of your flowers may still be in bud. This is because we want you to enjoy them for as long as possible.
