5 Products & Quality

5.1 What is the average shelf life of dried flowers?
On average you can enjoy your dried flowers for at least 6 months. If you want to enjoy your dried flowers or dried bouquet even longer, then add a professional spray especially for dried flowers.

5.2 What is the average shelf life of a fresh bouquet of flowers?
If cared for properly, you can enjoy your fresh bouquet of flowers for at least 7 days on average.

5.3 How do I best care for my fresh bouquet of flowers?
The care of the flowers starts with the vase. Clean the vase thoroughly, preferably with (eco) chlorine and a good scrub. Then fill the vase with fresh water and flower food. Fill the vase to a maximum of one quarter.

Cut or trim a piece from the bottom of the flower stems. This keeps the stems clean and allows them to soak up the fresh water.

Place your bouquet where you can enjoy the flowers the most. Bear in mind that flowers do not like to be placed directly next to fruit, in a draught, above the heating or in direct sunlight.

You can enjoy your fresh flowers longer by changing the water in the vase when it gets dirty and/or cloudy. Repeat the steps of 'how to care for my flowers' and you will give your flowers a boost!

5.4 How long is my gift card valid?
Your gift card is valid for 1 year from the date of issue. The expiry date is stated on the gift card.
