This page gives you information about flower carebirth month flowers, anniversary year flowers and the historical traditional meaning held behind different flowers.  You can see different pictures of flowers we stock, can source and love with details of their availability, life length, colours and care tips in our Facebook album 'Flowers, flowers, beautiful flowers'.  (Including our infamous rainbow roses!  Must be seen to be believed!!)

Flower Care:

Make sure the flower's home (vase) is clean.  It'a worth bleaching the vase to get rid of bacteria.  Add flower food to cold water before cutting the stems at an angle with a sharp pair of scissors, and then add the flowers.

If you have an aqua pack (hand tied in water). you can keep them as they are for a couple of days before having to change the water as above.  

Get rid of any leaves that fall be;low the waterline, they decompose quicker in water and make your flowers wilt!  

Cutting stems at an angle gives them more surface area so they drink more.  

Change the water every couple of days to keep them freshest.

Keep flowers away from ripening fruit, draughts, and warm areas.  


Top Tips:  Some flowers (like lilies) have pollen that will stain surfaces; protect your home and clothing, and remove them as soon as they appear.

Daffodils (as pretty as they are!) are poisonous to other flowers.  You must keep them separate, or keep them in their own vase for 24 hours before mixing them with other flowers.
