Basket Flower Care
Want to keep your flowers pretty? Here's some tips and instructions from our flower experts to care for your BloomThis basket flowers.
Your handwoven basket can be used again & again - room deco, date night or even a picnic.
For the basket:
1. Place in a cool & dry area
Keep your handwoven basket in a cool and dry room or shaded area. Avoid direct sunlight, extreme heat, dust and water. All of these conditions may make your basket fade and brittle.
For the flowers in your basket:
1. Get a clean vase
The cleaner your vase, the lesser the bacteria and the longer your flowers bloom. Of course, you can also use a jar, a mug, a teapot or anything that you fancy.
2. Fill clean water
Fill the vase with cold tap water. Too much water can speed the decay of the stems, and too little will hamper hydration. We suggest filling your vase up to two-thirds full.
3. Arrange in your vase
After you've trimmed the stems and pruned the leaves, arrange them in your filled vase however you like. Here's a pro tip: place taller stems at the back and the short ones at the front.
4. Place in a cool area
Place your flowers in a cool room or shaded area. Avoid direct air-conditioning, direct sunlight, extreme heat, dust and ripening fruit. All of these conditions may make your flowers wilt faster.
5. Change water daily
Change the water in your vase when the water becomes discoloured or murky. Dirty water will block the stems and hamper hydration. The water in your vase should always be crystal clear. Again, use cold tap water.
6. Remove wilting petals
When a flower begins to wilt, remove the petals or the whole flower from the arrangement. Flowers bloom and wilt at different times. Removing wilted flowers will help to avoid the spread of bacteria to the other flowers.
7. Mist flowers daily
Spray or spritz your flowers with clean tap water once a day to give it additional hydration. Flowers can absorb water from places other than the base of its stems. To do this right, use a bottle with a fine mist setting and spray from 6 inches to 1 foot away from the flowers to ensure an even coverage.
