Flowers are one of life's simple pleasures.  At Terrain Flowers, we source fresh product from the best suppliers and then clean, hydrate and condition every stem to ensure maximum quality and vase life of your flower arrangement.

Tips to Help Your Flowers Last Longer

For any fresh cut flower, we recommend topping up the water in the vase or container every day.  

To top up vase arrangements and hand-tied bouquets, use a watering can or water bottle.  Slowly add water until it is about an inch from the top.  This ensures thorough hydration of each stem and helps to minimize bacteria growth in the vase.

Our hand-tied bouquets are typically packaged in a cellophane bag of water or water tubes so there is no need to recut the stems; simply remove the cello bag and place the tied bouquet in a clean vase of water. 

For flowers in floral foam, top up the water in the vase, container or tray daily

to about half an inch from the top.  Floral foam provides water, but it will dry out without daily top up. 

Placement and Maintenance

To display and enjoy your flowers, choose a cool spot that is out of direct sunlight and away from drafts or heating vents.

Your flowers, whether hand-tied or vase arranged, are typically set against lush premium foliage; as the flowers fade, the overall beauty and structure of the design remains.

Carefully snip blooms as they fade.  Do not  pull the entire stem out of the arrangement as each design is made with a structural interlocking of the stems, thus keeping the floral elements securely in place.  Pulling out stems may disrupt or break other stems and may leave gaps in the design.

A Note About 'Flower Food'

Some florists provide sachets of flower food, however studies show that recipients rarely use these sachets correctly, and when they do, the food is mixed disproportionately to the water.  This may have adverse effects on flower longevity.

All our flowers are hydrated in our shop in carefully measured professional food and water solution.  Once they arrive at your place, plain room-temperature water is all the flowers need!
