Floral Arrangement Care Tips

Watering Tips

Your floral arrangement should last for about 1 week with proper care. Aim to change the water out every 2-3 days! Changing the water frequently minimizes bacteria buildup within your vase.

Avoid Sunlight

Contrary to what you might think, your flowers will do best in indirect sunlight or indoor lighting. We don’t want to encourage floral “maturing”, which sunlight will do!

Cut Stems at an Angle

When your floral arrangement comes home for the first time, take at least 3cm (1″) off all stems, making a slanted cut with a sharp knife or very sharp scissors. Do this each time you change out your water, too!

from our blogs

During the summer, we get very, very busy trying to accommodate all of the wonderful, loved-up couples who are getting married in Edmonton during our brief warmer months.
Key tips for success: Re-cut stem ends at an angle every 1-3 days. Keep the vase full of water and don't use floral preservatives. Display in cool area away from heat vents.
At The Lavender House, we are  extremely excited about the holiday season! We love creating beautiful holiday designs and letting our imaginations run wild with unique flowers only available during the winter season.
