Sadly, flowers don’t last forever.. We wish it were true! While they won’t live forever,  there are a few things you can do to make sure they live life to their full extent.

Gently Unwrap

Little Mr Bouqs come packaged with fresh water at the base of the wrapping. Please keep them upright until you’re ready to unwrap.

Carefully unwrap the burlap-wrapped hessian and discard the water packet.

Snip, Snip

Find a suitable vase and make sure it’s nice and clean! We suggest you wash it with hot, soapy water and rinse well.

Trim off at least 1cm of the stem at a 45 degree angle. This will actually increase the surface area of the stem as well as improve the uptake of water.


Just like us, your flowers are thirsty! Fill the vase with cool, clean water. Clean water prevents bacteria from growing (which is what causes flowers to expire – eek!). Here’s the kicker – try to change the water DAILY, or as often as you can possibly remember!

Love Them

Keep in a cool spot in your house, give those beautiful blooms some love, sing them a song and tell them how much you love them. But remember, keep them away from direct sunlight, fireplaces or heaters.

Last, but not least.. Enjoy them and know that you msut be pretty special for someone to care enough to send you Little Mr Bouqs flowers.
