How to make Valentine’s Day flowers in a box last longer:

When you receive the Valentine’s Day flower arrangement from Heart in a Box the flowers will still be in bud so it will take a couple of days for the roses to open fully meaning you get 7 days to enjoy them. The flowers will be in a water bubble when you receive them . Make sure that there is enough water in here so that the stems are fully submerged in water. You will be ok leaving the flowers in this water bubble for 2-3 days.

Once you have had the flowers for 2-3 days it is now time to remove the water bubble and all the exterior cellophane (you are best off doing this over the kitchen sink to avoid spilling water everywhere.) Try not to cut the ribbon that is keeping the flowers in place. With either a sharp knife or scissors you need to cut around half a centimeter off each stem at a 45 degree angle. (Increasing the surface area for the flower to drink.)

You are now ready to put your flowers into a vase of water removing any leaves that are below the water level as this increases the bacteria in the water.  Every other day remove the water and fill with fresh water to increase the life time of your flowers. Try to keep your flowers away from direct sun light as this can cause flowers to wilt.
