How to use the right flower care for your bouquet and to keep it fresh for a long time
FIRST THINGS FIRST
- the matching vase
find the right vase. It should be about 1/3 the height of the bouquet.
2. clean water
your flowers need plenty of clean water, with the exception of some spring flowers with bulbs, such as the tulip or hyacinth.
TIP: Add our freshness-retaining agent or a copper coin to the water!
3. Remove leaves
Remove the bottom leaves; only the stem should be in the water.
4th Shorten the stems
Cut the stems of your flowers at an angle so they can absorb more water.
5. Change water
You should change the water every 2-3 days. Don’t forget to cut the stems again.
- Your flowers don’t like it too warm or too cold. Make sure they never in direct sunlight stand.
- It is particularly important that the Constant and balanced temperature remain. Because both drafts (open windows) and selective heat (radiators, direct sunlight) shorten the life of your flowers.
- Apart from the climatic environment of your arrangement, you should also take care that no filled fruit bowl (ripening gas or ethylene) stands nearby or curious pets test your ostrich for taste and fall resistance.

How to get the perfect photo:
Wait for most of the buds to open. For the perfect photo, choose a background that is as calm as possible.
Flowers shine in natural sunlight. Be careful not to catch any backlight.
Pro tip: open your camera’s aperture to play with the focus and background.
