Keep your flowers looking fantastic for longer with these seven simple tips.
  1. Use spotlessly clean vases and fresh lukewarm water.
  2. Stop stems turning sludgy! Take off all leaves that will be below the water.
  3. Cut a thumb's length off all stems at a slant with a sharp knife or scissors. This is the best way for the flowers to take up water.
  4. Always use flower food. It helps buds open and prevents stem wilting.
  5. Keep your flowers away from sunlight and heat.
  6. Take out faded flowers to keep bouquets fresher for longer.
  7. Check water levels - some flowers are thirsty! Top up if necessary.
