Flowers in the hot weather
We may all like the hot sunny season and it may be a great time to see so many wide varieties of wildlife, plants and flowers in your garden, but spare a thought for the cut flowers and plants in your house.
Flowers can have their life span sortened by upto fifty percent if not looked after properly during a heat wave. We strive to deliver our flowers to the recipient in a perfect condition however the way you look after your flowers when they arrive at your home will greatly prolong their life. We recommend the following steps to ensure that your flowers stay fabulous.
- Place your flowers away from drafts, fans and air conditioning units. A breeze across the stems and leaves can directly increase the speed at which flowers loose moisture.
- Keep your product in the coolest place possible, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.
- Ensure that there is plenty of water in the vase. In extremely hot weather change the water daily using clean cold water.
- If you have an arrangement in floral foam then make sure the water level is topped up twice a day. Foam does not contain as much water as a vase and the flowers still drink at the same speed.
