Flowers have the power to brighten up any space and bring joy to our lives. At Melissa's Florist and Gifts in Pinewood, Mount Waverley, we understand the importance of keeping your flowers fresh and vibrant. Here's a simple guide to ensure your blooms stay beautiful for longer:

How to care for your flowers

1. Trim with Precision

When you receive your bouquet, grab your trusty pair of scissors and cut the stems at a sharp 45° angle. This allows the flowers to absorb water more effectively.

2. Hydration Matters

Changing the water every second day keeps your flowers hydrated and happy. Fresh water nourishes the blooms, ensuring they stay lively.

3. Prune for Prolonged Beauty

Remove any leaves or foliage that are submerged in the water. This prevents bacteria growth and keeps your arrangement looking pristine.

4. Bid Adieu to Browning

Say goodbye to brown, soggy leaves or petals. Gently strip them away to maintain the elegance of your bouquet.

5. Feed the Blooms

Treat your flowers to a special meal by adding flower food or a pinch of sugar to clean water. This concoction revitalises your blooms, making them stand out even more. We've got flower food in-store and online. Pop in, or ask for a sachet!

6. Mind the Sunlight

Shield your flowers from direct sunlight, as it can cause wilting. Opt for indirect morning sunlight or a shady spot instead.

7. Temperature

Extreme temperatures can take a toll on your flowers. Keep them in a cool room and protect them from harsh winds, ensuring they're comfy and cozy.
