Care tips for Nigella
Freshly cut the summer asters and Nigella capsules with flower scissors on arrival. Remove any leaves that are still on the end of the stem, as these will affect the quality of the water if they come into contact with the vase water. Change the water every other day with a fresh cut.
With the BLOOMY DAYS flower subscription, we regularly send you fresh, seasonal cut flowers directly to your home! Security is very important to us. To ensure that our flowers arrive fresh and without damage, we attach particular importance to protecting each bouquet when we send flowers. With our practical fresh carton, consisting of a cardboard box, a bloomy bag (which will water your flowers sufficiently during transport) and package ties for securely fastening the bouquet in the box, our flowers are optimally prepared for the journey to your home.
