Looking after your Poinsettia

To help extend the life of your poinsettia, please keep the following hints in mind:

  • Keep your plant out of direct sunlight
  • Water your plant when the soil feels dry. Poinsettias do not like to dry out. Check your poinsettia at least twice per week to make sure it does not dry out.
  • Avoid placing your plant near cold drafts (air conditioning) or excessive heat. Avoid placing plants near
    appliances or ventilating ducts.
  • Try not to overwater your plant or allow it to sit in water.  Make sure to drain the water completely.
  • Dont fertilize your plant when it is in bloom.

If you follow these helpful hints a quality plant placed in the right location that is well-cared for can stay in bloom for at least 4 to 6 weeks before the flowers begin to fall off.

We have Poinsettias available in the Christmas section of the website available for delivery right throughout Dubai.

Merry Christmas!

Taking care of your Hydrangeas

Here are some top tips to prolong the vase life of your Hydrangeas:
 
1. Hydrangeas are very water sensitive flowers. Make sure you keep the flowers in a cool and well-ventilated spot out of direct sunlight and away from heat
 
2. Avoid placing the flowers near cooling vents, under ceiling fans or on the top of the televisions. Dont keep them close to fruits or vegetables. We do not recommend storing your flowers in refrigerators which are not specifically designed for storing fresh flowers. (ie not with food)
 
3. Clean your vases regularly – fill the vase with lukewarm water and a drop of chlorine/bleach – this makes it free of bacteria. Change the water every couple of days
 
4. Cut the stems every time you change the water (2-3 days). Also cut up the stem/split the stem. Hydrangeas need lots of water
 
5. If the flowers start to droop they are not getting enough water. You may also need to remove all the leaves.
 
There you go. Happy hydrangeas!

Its Peony Season

Its Peony Season and we are loving it!  Peonies are my favourite flower and are so popular right now.  We are able to source them from Holland at a very reasonable price, so many of our arrangements have Peonies for these few weeks.  Delivery is available same day should you order your flowers before 1pm

How do I speed up the process of the Peony blooming?

  • Cut the stem on a sharp angle to open as large a hole as possible.
  • Place is a vase of tepid water
  • Cut the stems every 4-6 hours and place back into the water
  • Keep the flowers in a warm bright room to encourage them to open
  • Cover with a plastic bag and seal in the ethylene gas to encourage them to open faster.

 

How do I slow down the blooming of a Peony?

  • Place in a dark cool room and add ice to the water to slow down the opening process
