That end of school year time approaches and a bouquet of flowers can be a lovely way to thank teachers for a year of nurturing your children…
Finally, warm weather again – summer is coming… And quite likely a bit warm indoors too.
So what best to do with your flowers to help them last as long as possible?
Change the water daily – luke warm. And perhaps add a drop of bleach – just a drop – to help keep the water fresh.
You can also trim a little off the flower stems – this can help draw the water up into the bloom.
And if you can avoid the hotspots in your room, your flowers will last longer – sunny windowsills will mean shorter flower life.
I’m sure you’ve noticed that we are in for a weekend of celebrations for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Whatever you are doing, have a lovely long Jubilee weekend
We’ll be closed on the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, then looking forward to a fresh delivery of flowers first thing on Wednesday 6th June.
