Flower Care

How to make flowers last longer:

Correct flower care comes down to managing three things; the environment, water, and trimming the stem.

  • Ensure the flowers are out of direct sunlight, vents, draughts or ripening fruit.
  • Vase has cool-warm water and flowers are placed in water as soon as possible. Replace water every few days.
  • Remove any leaves from the stems that will sit below the water line.
  • Cutting 2.5cm off stem at a 45-degree angle every few days. 
  • Place half your flower food sachet in the water on day 1 and 3.

Why do our flowers last the longest in Christchurch?

We are not like other florists, we grow our own flowers.

Your flowers are freshly cut from our glasshouse. We don't have to predict demand, so we never have our flowers sitting and wilting like we would if we bought from market.
