General Care Guidelines
The following general guidelines apply to all products in our flower delivery service. Use the menu options above for instructions on specific types of flowers and arrangements.

  1. Premature wilting is not a sign that the rose is old. It usually indicates that air is entrapped in the stem and the preservative solution cannot flow properly up the stem. The end of the stem may be blocked, or look for a cut or scrape in the bark above the water level. Recut the stem above the injured section and then submerge the entire rose in a basin or shallow pan of warm water (about 100 degrees F). Be sure to keep the stem and head straight. It will usually revive within an hour and can be replaced in the arrangement.

  2. If a florist's porous foam material is used in assembling the arrangement, it is important that it is thoroughly saturated in advance in water containing a floral preservative. Be sure that the rose stems are inserted firmly well below the solution level in the container. Do not move the stem ends after inserting them into the foam. This may leave an air pocket at the base of the stem.

  3. If you cannot get your flowers into water and the floral preservative right away, keep in a cool place away from direct sunlight.
