- Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps. Remove any plastic or paper packaging from each bunch of flowers.
- Fill containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.
- Cut stems diagonally approximately at least and inch from bottom under running water with sharp scissors or knife.
- Immediately after cutting, place the stems in the prepared water.
- Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
- Change water every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh. Assure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival.
Sunflowers may not have perfectly straight stems. Please take this into account when arranging your bulk flowers. Also, Sunflowers are affected by photoropism, meaning that their heads follow the light. Place a light directly over the sunflowers while they hydrate to help them open upward. Once arranged, make sure the arrangement is evenly lit to prevent shifting.
