FloraLife® Express Flower Food Recyclable Paper Packets for Europe

You're thinking… flowers need to eat just like me? What does that mean exactly? Sounds strange but yes, just like us, flowers need all the creature comforts in order to thrive. Say for example we were thrown into a harsh environment of extreme cold or heat, no water, no food. It's clear we would not be able to withstand those conditions for long and we would expire. Like any other living things, flowers are no different. Flowers need proper conditions, hydration and most importantly, nourishment. Under the right circumstances cut flowers can last surprisingly longer than you might expect after harvest.

Growers are the first link in the chain; when harvesting they take great care to hydrate and nourish stems before packing for their journey to the next stop. When arriving at flower wholesalers or bouquet operation, the same process is repeated. Flowers are conditioned so when they arrive at your local retailers, they are fully nourished and ready to give you an amazing flower experience! Last but certainly not least in this chain is you. How you care for your flowers once you get them home makes a world of difference in how long you will enjoy them. Below are some easy but important care tips you should follow.

Flower food is the key ingredient to make your flowers last the longest. The Floralife® Express Flower Food packet that you received with your flowers is a premium and revolutionary product that allows fresh cut flowers to be fed and fully hydrated.

Want the longest vase life possible?

Follow these few, easy steps.

1. Start with a clean vase or container.

We do not recommend using a metal or galvanized container unless you have a liner.

2. Fill your container with cool water mixed with flower food.

Follow directions on packet for the right water to food ratio. Do not use softened water as the salt levels can be damaging to flowers.

3. Remove any leaves that would fall below the water level.

4. Carefully re-cut stem ends approximately 1" (2.5cm) using a clean pair of floral shears or a knife.

Recutting stems is optional with the FloraLife® Express technology. However, when in doubt, it is always a good idea to recut stems at home before hydrating and feeding in your flower food solution.

5. Place flowers immediately into prepared container.

6. Be careful not to get water on the flower blooms.
