After the flowers have been delivered, it is important to put the flowers in a vase as soon as possible. This prevents the flowers from being without water for too long. The flowers of Bloompost are unique and one of a kind. Your bouquet of flowers will always be delivered within 1 day to the delivery address you specified throughout the Netherlands.
When you receive a flower arrangement, it is important to top up the pot in which the flower arrangement is placed with water. Then top up the pt regularly with water. This way you can enjoy your flower arrangement for a long time.
ANGLED CUT OFF THE FLOWERS
Cutting the flowers at an angle is very important and for a number of reasons. Often a bouquet is given from the florist that is given to the recipient the same day. It may be that this bouquet has been or has been without water for a while. This causes the underside of the stems to dry out. The capillaries in the stems can then absorb less water, causing the flowers to droop more quickly. Bloompost makes every effort to deliver the flowers as fresh as possible.
However, it is important to cut a small piece of the flowers at an angle. This doesn’t have to be much. +/- 2 cm is sufficient. Cutting off a piece of the stem at an angle ensures sufficient water supply and that bacteria have a minimal chance of infecting the flower, causing it to droop.
Use sharp tools, preferably a sharp knife. Other tools, such as blunt pliers, pinch off the capillaries, making the flowers less able to absorb water. A sharp kitchen knife is a great tool.
REMOVE BAD FLOWERS FROM THE BOUQUET
Remove the flowers birthday that have finished blooming from the bouquet. These are almost dead anyway and can therefore best be taken out of the bouquet. Withered flowers can pollute the water and bacteria can then get a free hand more quickly and affect the other flowers more quickly.
USE A CLEAN VASE
A clean vase is vital for flowers. We recommend using a glass vase. Bacteria attach themselves less quickly to the wall of a glass vase, which in turn extends the life of flowers.
When using a glass vase, you can also see better whether there is enough water in the vase. You can also check whether the water is still fresh and clear. Cloudy water is not good. These are developed bacteria, algae and dead material from the flower stems. Change the water at least every 5 days to prevent cloudy water and other infections of the flowers.
Always fill a vase with clean water. Plain tap water is fine. A lot is said about flowers on lukewarm water, but regular tap water from about 10 degrees is fine. So that’s cold water. Exotic flowers often require warmer water.
It is important that the vase is really clean. A transparent vase indicates for you when the water needs to be changed. Flowers should also have sufficient water. Some flowers drink much more water than other flowers.
