Guide to Flower Care

We at Floral Productions take pride in sending you only the freshest flowers. Here is a handy guide to help you in preserving your arrangements and plants so that they look their healthiest for the longest period of time. With just a little bit of maintenance they should stay fresh for days to come. As always, if you have any questions about their care, please call us and we'll be glad to help you.

Floral Arrangements: Upon receiving your floral arrangement, check the water level. Add water daily, keeping the water level near the top of the container.

Fresh Cut Flowers and Boxed Roses: As soon as you receive them, add Floral-Food (when provided) to a clean vase. Remove the leaves from the lower stem of each flower. Cut each stem at an angle, under running water, with a sharp knife so that the flower can "drink". Refill water daily or as needed.

Green Plants: Medium light locations are preferred by most green plants. This means light near a sunny window but protected from direct sun. To determine this, place your hand 1 foot above the area you've chosen as their home. You should get a distinct shadow.
  • Moderately moist soil is best; avoid over watering. Always allow a watered plant to drain freely. Never let the pot sit in water.
  • Temperatures found in most homes are acceptable, but moderate locations are preferred. Ideally, 70 degree days and 50 to 55 degrees at night.
Fertilizer: If plants are kept for extended periods of time, use a house plant fertilizer at the manufacturer's rate and frequency.

So remember: Keep your fresh flowers away from drafts, heat, cold and direct sunlight and avoid overwatering. Floral Productions has the freshest flowers and we guarantee the best quality! With just a minimum of daily upkeep your flowers will stay fresh for many days. Enjoy!
