Fresh Cut Flower Care

We make every effort to provide fresh, beautiful flowers.

To get the most enjoyment and longevity from your fresh cut flowers, here are a few easy steps to follow that will ensure that your flowers look their best.


  • Place in low, indirect sunlight
  • Avoid direct sun to prevent petal burn


  • Keep at room temperature (63-80 degrees F) away from drafts or vents
  • Keep the flowers away from heat sources and fresh fruit


  • Upon arrival, cut approximately 1” from the bottom of stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife or pruners.
  • Upon receiving your bouquet, trim the stems at an angle using clean, sharp snips, pruners or scissors.
  • Place in 3-4” of cool water.
  • Change the water daily.
  • Remove any leaves or foliage that will fall under the water line.
  • Use a clean vase (be sure to give it a rinse to remove any soapy residue)


  • Flowers that arrive in bud will open in 2-3 days. To prolong life, change water and trim stems every other day.
  • For the longest vase life, change the water daily and trim the stems just a bit every day or
  • If you’d like your blooms to open up more quickly, perhaps for a special event, use warm water to gently coax the blooms open.
  • Every stem has a different expected vase life. As blooms expire, remove them from the bouquet to keep the other blooms fresher, longer
