Boxed arrangements flower care

We want you to get the most enjoyment out of your flowers.

We wished they lasted forever; however a little extra care can make all the difference.

We will choose the longest lasting flowers. Many of your blooms will be closed when we deliver them to you. That way you get to enjoy them opening and of course they last longer!

Check your Flowers Daily

Our boxed arrangements are made using oasis - a water absorbing flower foam which is contained in waterproof packaging within our boxes.

Make sure water is kept up to the foam refilling by pouring water into the centre of the box at least every second day. 

You will be able to tell by the weight of the box if the water and foam is needing attention!

A good test is to touch the  floral foam every day with your finger to check the moisture level. When you push the foam gently with the tip of your finger, it should give slightly and you should feel moisture.

As some flowers will last longer than others, carefully remove spent blooms, especially if other flowers in your display are still alive.

Displaying Your Flowers

Choosing the right spot for your beautiful blooms makes a big difference.

Never put your flowers in direct sunlight. 

Keep fresh flowers away from drafts and extreme temperatures, which can quickly dry out the flowers and cause wilting

Do not keep flowers on top of televisions or microwaves as they radiate heat and can cause flowers to dehydrate.

Some fruits can also release tiny amounts of ethylene gas that can prematurely age flowers, so it is best to keep flowers a distance away

Do not place your flowers in the path of cigarette smoke.

Avoid placing flower arrangements in windowsills and other areas with full sun where flowers can wilt due to overheating.

Most flowers will last longer under cool conditions but not directly under an air-condition unit or fan, heating or cooling vents.

Recycle Reuse

Your Bouquet box is hand made using reclaimed wood. The floral foam is biodegradable. We are happy to collect your box and refill for any occasion.

At Mudgee Monkey we are making a commitment to reduce our foot print while providing you beautiful blooms.
