When your boxes arrive, it is important that you get your flowers in water as quickly as possible. Open your boxes and remove any protective packaging, such as foam or paper.
Inspect your flowers.*
Gather buckets or containers to hold the flowers. Ensure your buckets or containers are very clean. We recommend rinsing them with warm water to ensure your flowers stay as healthy as possible.
Fill the containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, lukewarm water. If flower food is available, follow the package directions for adding it to the water.
Cut away any straps securing the flowers to the box and remove your flowers.
Remove any rubber bands or plastic sleeves securing flower bunches together.
Trim any foliage that would be below the waterline. You may also want to trim more of the foliage; the less foliage, the more water gets the the bloom.
Using sharp flower shears or scissors, cut stems diagonally under cool, running water. Cut about an inch off of each stem.
Immediately after cutting the stem, place the flower in the prepared water.
Continue this process until all of your flowers are in water. Do not overcrowd your containers.
Store flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts, and excessive heat as well.
Let your flowers hydrate before arranging them. Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate, flowers may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Periodically check the water level. Flowers drink a lot of water when they first arrive, so it will likely need to be refilled.
Change the water for your flowers ever 24-48 hours to ensure they stay healthy and happy. Re-cut the stems when giving them fresh water.
