Flower Care Instructions

Flower Care for your…

Flower care is important for long-lasting healthy flowers. If you have received flowers from Chobham Flowers make sure you take the time to read the flower care instructions below.

Hand Tied Aqua Pack

Your bouquet can be left in its aqua pack for up to 48 hours. After this time the water will need to be changed, so snip the base of the water bag over the sink to release the water. Remove the lower packaging, the upper gift wrap can be left on if desired or removed with care but do not untie your flowers. Fill a vase of tepid water, add flower food following the instruments on the packet, cut approximately 5 cm from the end of the stems, for best results cut stems at an angle. Stand the Hand Tied design in a vase. Remember to keep flowers in a cool draught free area, out of direct sunlight. The cooler the room, the longer your flowers will last. Remove any faded blooms or foliage as soon as possible. Change the water in the vase twice a week for the best flower care.

Cut Flowers

On receipt of your flowers, unwrap with care. Add flower food to water in a vase. Cut the base of the stem, remove any foliage that will be below the water level. Arrange flowers and place vase away from direct sunlight, radiators and draughts. The cooler the room, the longer the flowers will last. Change the water at least once a week, remove any faded blooms to encourage buds to open.

Flower Arrangement

On receipt of your flower arrangement top up the container with water. Keep topped up as flowers drink water. Keep the arrangement away from draughts, sunlight and radiators. The cooler the room, the longer the flowers will last. Remove blooms as they fade.


Do not stand plants on polished surfaces or televisions. Most plants can be mist sprayed lightly but not hairy leaved plants. Avoid draughts and direct heat.

Planted Bowl

Keep in a fairly warm room with good light, keep soil moist but don’t over water. Ensure all plants receive water. Feed once every two weeks in Spring / Summer. Remove any damaged / faded leaves. Stand in good light but not direct sunlight, keep soil moist but do not over water or allow to stand in water. Feed every two weeks whilst flowering, remove blooms as they fade.
