How to make your bunches bloom

We may be slightly bias, but we think that flowers brighten up the grey-ist of days. Here are some pro-tips for getting the most out of your fresh cut bunch of FdR flowers!


Cut the stems at an angle

A 45 degree angle is best. Simply cut the stems and place them in water – this will allow any plant food and nutrients to move up the stem more freely. Meaning your flowers will last longer.


Just add sugar (and white vinegar)

No flower food? No problem. Simply dissolve 3 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of white vinegar per litre of water when you fill the vase.


Keep them out of sunlight

Many people keep flowers on a window sill or in the hall, but if truth be told, flowers are a lot like a potato. They do best in a cool dark environment away from direct sunlight and heaters.



If you need your bunch to bloom fully a little quicker (for a dinner party or a gift), just add some lemonade to the water.
