How to care for roses

Have you ever noticed a dark edge on your red rose petals? This is not a flaw, but a characteristic of our red rose variety. Remove any discoloured petals from the outer edge of the rose. These are the guard petals and are no longer required.

Rose heads can have a tendency to droop. Revive them by placing the newly cut stems into no more than an inch of boiling water for about 30 seconds, remove and place into a prepared vase.

Make your roses last

Remove all lower leaves from the stem. No leaves should be below the water line. Your roses will last longer if placed in a cool area. If you want your blooms to open quickly, temporarily place them in a warm spot (no warmer than 80 degrees Fahrenheit).

With over 20,000 different varieties of rose, this classic flower will never cease to surprise.

How to care for freesias

Who would have thought such a delicate flower could pack such a punch?

Freesia blossoms are arranged in succession on a comb like stem. On arrival these will be tightly in bud but will begin to flower once the basic care instructions have been followed. The blossoms open in succession. Remove older blooms past their prime to encourage new buds to open.

How to care for tulips

Pretty pastels or bold an bright, tulips come in a huge variety of colours and styles. All of our tulips are delivered tightly closed to ensure they are received in the freshest condition and to prolong their vase life.

Tulips prefer a full vase of cool water to keep them fresh. Warm water may shorten their vase life. Remove all lower leaves and any that fall below the water mark.

Make the most of your tulips

Our tulips are tall stemmed and premium quality. They will naturally bend and turn towards a light source. Some people prefer to accentuate this look and leave the stems tall but, if you prefer them to be more upright, they need to be cut to a minimum of double the height of the vase.

Tulips naturally occur in Spring and are one of Britain's most popular seasonal flowers.
