When beautiful flowers arrive, all fresh and beautifully designed, you’ll want to treat them as well as they deserve. The team at Robertson’s Flowers has put our all into providing you with a unique floral design of exceptional quality, and we want it to last as long as you do. With just a little know-how, you can ensure that your blooms live their longest and best life.
- Keep the vase filled (or floral foam soaked) with water. Robertson’s adds a special liquid food at the time of design to ensure longevity and to help kill bacteria. Flower foods provide sugars, balance ph and limit bacterial growth.
- Read the enclosed literature when you receive a plant. We include special care cards that relay any specific instructions for the actual plant, whether it’s an orchid, succulent garden or other seasonal variety, as well as the container type.
- Check your arrangement daily to make sure it has plenty of clear fresh water. If possible, re-cut stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife or scissors that will not crush the stems. Immediately place the stems into warm solution or deeply and firmly back into floral foam.
- Keep flowers in a cool spot (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit), away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or near appliances. Heat from appliances or hot and cold drafts cause flowers to dehydrate.
A special piece like Pink Sands is worth going the extra mile for, and it won’t take but a bit of effort on your part to keep it looking special.
