Flower Care

You’ve just received the most beautiful gift ever, now what? Our flower experts at DearJ have come up with some easy-to-follow tips and instructions to make sure your fresh, gorgeous flowers last longer!

 

Hand Bouquets

(Here’s how to take good care of our signature hand bouquets!)

  1. Keep it standing

When you receive the bouquet, make sure to keep it upright as much as you can as there is water at the bottom. You wouldn’t want to make a mess, don’t you?

  1. Remove bouquet wrapping

Remember to remove the bouquet wrapping before you go ahead and transfer the flowers into a vase.

  1. Clean vase, clean water

Your flowers won’t last long without water! Grab a vase, or anything you would like to put them in, and make sure it’s CLEAN. We recommend filling them up with cold tap water, up to half or two-thirds full.

  1. Trim flower stems

Even submerged in water, the flower stems will start to brown and decay, which can affect water absorption. We recommend cutting approximately 1 inch off each stem at a slanted angle every 2 days.

  1. Change water

It is important to make sure that the water doesn’t discolor or turn murky as it can affect water absorption as well. We recommend replacing with cold tap water every time you trim the flower stems (every 2 days).

  1. Add flower food

We provide some flower food in a sachet, which contains all the nutrients your flowers need to increase their lifespan! Remember to keep the flower food out of reach of infants, kids and pets.

  1. Place in cool area

Conditions such as direct sunlight, extreme heat or dust aren’t good for your flowers; they can make them wilt faster. It is best to place your flowers in a shaded area at a cool temperature.

  1. Mist flowers daily

Most cut flower will benefit from a daily mist of water. Fill a spray bottle with clean tap water and mist your flowers once a day to boost hydration.
