flower care

For longest vase life


Use a clean vase and fill it with enough water so that all the stems are emersed.


After unwrapping your bouquet, re-cut the stems approximately 2-3cm on an angle with sharp scissors or secateurs before placing them into the water. Remove any leaves that might sit below the waterline.



Your flowers will look best for longest if you keep the water fresh and the vase clean and re-cut the stems on a regular basis.

(Every 2 - 3 days)


Keep your flowers in a cool place and away from draughts, extreme heat and electrical appliances. 

(such as microwaves, televisions, computers and heaters.



Keep flowers away from fruits as they release a gas called ethylene, which accelerates the ageing process in cut flowers. 


Remove any dead flower heads or leaves. This will help to prolong the life of the remaining flowers and promote other buds opening.


Enjoy your blooms!

gift wrapped bouquets


Remove wrapping from the bouquet as it is purely decorative and protection for the blooms.


You may leave the binding that holds the bouquet together intact to retain the design.



Compost/recycle or re-purpose your entire Joy Botanical wrapping.
