The first flower care tip: cut the flowers diagonally
Cutting the flowers diagonally is super important for your flowers. Cut a small piece off the bottom of the stems. This doesn’t have to be much. +/- 2 cm. is enough. If you cut the flowers diagonally, the stem will receive sufficient water supply to the flower. Use sharp tools, preferably sharp scissors (tip: We have super handy scissors in our range). Also make sure you have scissors or a knife is clean. Then the bacteria have a minimal chance of infecting the flower, so that they do not droop.
The second flower care tip: remove the leaves that could be submerged
Clean water is vital for your flowers. Leaves in the water can cause it to become cloudy. That is why we advise to remove all leaves from flowers and greenery that could be submerged. The thorns of roses can remain on the stem.
