Keep your flowers beautiful and your fruits fresh with these tips and tricks from our flower experts for Fruit Baskets or Fruit Boxes.Refrigerate your fruits 🍎
Please immediately store the fruits in a fridge to keep them fresh longer. There are certain fruits that may be able to last at room temperature but some fruits need to be chilled. For organisation and better food preservation, use separate reusable plastic bags or lidded containers.For the basket/box:
Remember, the baskets and boxes are reusable! To ensure their usability, keep them in a cool and dry room or shaded area. Avoid direct sunlight, extreme heat, dust, and water.For the flowers:
Place in a clean vase 💐
Store the flowers in a clean vase filled with cold tap water up to two-thirds full. The cleaner your vase, the lesser the bacteria and the longer your flowers bloom. Also, please make sure to keep the flowers in cool, dry area. Avoid direct sunlight, extreme heat, dust, fruits and vegetables.
Change the water every 2-3 days 💧
Make sure to keep the vase clean and change the water regularly. This is to prevent bacteria build-up on the stems. Dirty water will block the stems and hamper hydration.
Re-cut stems ✂️
By cutting the flower stems just before placing them back in a fresh batch of water, you remove the tissue on old stem cuts and expose new ones. This ensures good water absorption, thus boosting their hydration and longevity. You should cut the flower stems around two inches from the bottom of the vase.
Cut the stems at an angle and repeat every few days. Doing this gives your flowers as much surface area as possible to drink. #StayHydrated
Remove wilting petals 🥀
Flowers bloom and wilt at different times. When a flower begins to wilt, remove the petals or the whole flower from the arrangement. Removing wilted flowers can help avoid the spread of bacteria to the other flowers.
