A gift of flowers always touches the heart, especially with romantic occasions like Valentine’s Day. If you are a lucky somebody who receives a flower hand bouquet on Valentine’s Day, we can think of no better way to show that you appreciate the thoughtful gift than to care for your fresh flowers properly!
Without further ado, here are 3 (really simple ways – we promise) to keep your Valentine’s Day flowers beautiful and very much alive!
- Into A Vase ASAP
Yes, the flowers look their most beautiful all dressed up in paper wrappers, BUT, they do best in a vase of fresh water! Trust us. Not only will this allow the flowers to breathe, but more importantly, the water that the hand bouquet contains is only enough to sustain the flowers for 1 to 3 days – at most.
- Don’t Forget About Chrysal
What is Chrysal you may ask. Well, it is a flower flood that:
- Reduces the pH level and encourages water uptake and food consumption.
- Provides essential nutrients that encourages flowers to bloom fully, while keeping leaves and stems firm and green.
Here’s how to use Chrysal on your fresh flowers. First, fill a clean vase with fresh water, mix in a sachet of Chrysal until it dissolves, then place the fresh flowers into the vase (after trimming their stems, you can read more on how here). Simple.
Note: If you’ve got your Valentine’s Day hand bouquet from us, they all come delivered with a sachet of Chrysal.
- Cool Like A Cucumber
Fresh flowers love the cool, in fact the cooler the better. We understand that it may be difficult to keep fresh flowers cool like a cucumber in Singapore, especially when temperatures easily soar to 35 degrees. So in the event that your fresh flowers are not going to be placed in a space where they get air conditioning, here are a few things to keep your fresh flowers away from:
- Direct sunlight
- Air vents
- All other forms of heat sources (i.e. next to the kitchen stove or oven, in an enclosed room which has no ventilation, etc.)
