How to Care for Fresh Arrangements

Check the water supply immediately upon arrival. Add lukewarm water as needed. For best results, use floral preservative, if provided. Mix the preservative with room temperature water, in the proportion recommended on the package. If floral foam is used, make sure it is always thoroughly saturated. Check your arrangement daily to make sure it has plenty of clear, fresh water.

Display your arrangement in a cool location, out of direct sunlight and away from electrical appliances. Avoid particularly hot or cold areas.

To rearrange any flowers, re-cut the stem ends under water using a sharp knife or scissors. Then, insert each flower back into the arrangement. If floral foam is used, be sure to insert the stems firmly and deeply.
