Hand Tied Bouquet -
Skilfully designed in the colour and style of your choice, a hand-tied bouquet is arranged with the stems spiralled so the recipient can place the bouquet straight into a vase with water. All the recipient will need to do is remove the cellophane from the bottom, recut the stems (approx 1/2") and place in a vase with fresh water and the attached flower food. The rest of the gift wrapping can remain as it is. If preferred the gift wrapping can easily be removed and the bouquet will remain arranged.
Aqua Packed Hand Tied Bouquet -
Skilfully designed in the colour and style of your choice, an aqua-packed hand-tied bouquet is arranged with the stems spiralled in a cellophane bubble of water then placed in a gift bag (or vase if preferred - see additional items) to stay as fresh as possible. We recommend after a maximum of three days the bouquet is placed into a fresh vase of water to ensure a longer vase life. All the recipient will need to do is remove the cellophane bubble from the bottom as the rest of the gift wrapping can remain as it is, recut the stems at the bottom (approx 1/2") and place in a vase with fresh water and the attached flower food included on all our bouquets. If preferred the gift wrapping can easily be removed and the bouquet will remain arranged.
Presentation Bouquet -
A beautiful presentation of flowers, arranged in a traditional 'flat' style bouquet. This bouquet is designed to be easily taken apart and all gift wrapping removed. In this design stem lengths may vary. It must be taken apart before the stems are recut (approx 1/2"), then arranged into a vase or vases. This design is best suited to people who like to arrange their own flowers.

HOW DO I RE-CUT THE STEMS ON MY BOUQUET? Remove the cellophane from the bottom of your bouquet and using a pair of scissors cut the bottom off each stem, about 2cm or 2/3 inch, and at 45degrees or diagonally accross the stem.
SHOULD I ALWAYS RECUT THE STEMS? - As a rule most flower stems should be recut before putting into water, this means any stem ends that have dried up will be removed allowing the flower to drink again. Some spring flowers such as tulips, hyacynth and daffodils should be left uncut where possible unless the flower starts to droop. If Daffodils are recut you will need to replace the water after standing 2 hours as can release sap that poisons the water and other flowers. In this case wait until you have changed the water before adding the supplied flower food.
MY FLOWERS ARE AQUAPACKED IN A BUBBLE OF WATER, CAN I JUST TOP THEM UP? - No, aqua packed bouquets are for convenience in situations where the receipient wont have access to put their bouquet into a vase right away. These bouquets are just in water and should be transfered to a vase within 3 days with the attached flower food. Flower water should be changed regulary and stems re-cut, this can't be done if the flowers are left in their bubble and your flowers won't last their full potential.
