A Note From The Florist
Updated: Jan 7, 2019
Trufloral was created out of a belief that luxury flowers should be accessible for everyone. Arrangements are carefully curated, hand picked from a farm, delivered straight to you, which guarantees long lasting freshness. Our flowers are so fresh, that upon arrival to your home some may not have boomed just yet. So you will be in for a real treat seeing the flowers bloom in the coming days.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our fresh flowers and only partner with Rainforest Alliance-certified farms, which approaches farming in a holistic manner. So no toxic chemicals are involved in fertilizing our flowers and workers are treated fairly.
As fresh and beautiful your will be upon arrival, at some point you’ll have to part ways. However, there are some tried and true methods you can use to help your flowers reach their long lasting potential.
Flower Care Tips for Arrangements
Below are some great tips you can use to help your flowers stay fresh longer. Be sure to always refer back to this flower care guideline to guarantee beautiful long lasting blooms.
Always make sure the vase is filled ¾ of the way to the top with
filtered, room temperature water. It is very important to replace with fresh water and flower food every 24-48 hours.
2. Trim stems
Since your flowers are already trimmed, if you want your flowers to last longer be sure to re-trim the stems again to help provide better water intake every 2-3 days.
Remove any loose petals or leaves that are attached on the flower. After placing your flowers in a vase, be sure to remove any petals or leaves that fall below the water line. After a week, some flowers may have to be removed from your arrangement for good. This will prevent any bacterial growth from occurring.
4. Things To Avoid
Once flowers are cut from the farm, they don’t need any sunlight. In fact, direct sunlight will dry them out quicker. You also want to avoid placing your flowers near any sources that generate heat, including appliances, as well as drafts from an open window or air conditioner.
However keep in mind, cut flowers do thrive in cooler temperatures. So if you happen to be preparing your flowers for a party you’ll be hosting, leaving them in a very cold room or even refrigerator will help them thrive. For that extra freshness boost, you can even place your flowers in a fridge (between 40 & 50 degrees F) every night.
Occasional misting will help keep your flowers looking fresh along with lots of love! Over time, as you continue to trim the stems and remove wilted flowers, you can transfer your arrangements to separate smaller containers, like vintage glassware and enjoy for a few more days!
