CARING FOR YOUR STEMS

DRIED FLOWER CARE

Your dried flowers will not wilt and will stay looking fresh for up to three years. To keep that fresh, vibrant look, we have set out some tips below:-​

  • Keep your stems away from water. Dried flowers do not need water to survive and it will damage them, especially if they have been dyed (with natural dye!)

  • Dried flowers will lose their colour eventually but to keep them looking bright, make sure they are kept out of direct sunlight which will dull them. 

  • Don't forget, they are real flowers and the stems are very delicate. When moving them around, take extra care to avoid snapping. It may be best to place them somewhere peaceful where they wont be knocked.

  • Ensure good airflow around your blooms and prevent temperature changes. If they become damp they may start to mould. Sometimes vases can capture moisture and humidity within them so check the stems within the vase now and then - see that they’re nice and dry. 

  • When you want to dust them, use a hair dryer on the lowest setting. Don't stand too close, as we would hate for them to get damaged. 

PAMPAS CARE GUIDE

Don't worry if it looks a bit flat on arrival. If you follow these tips, you will see the full effects of this beautiful fluffy grass.

  • Take your stems outside and give them a shake to remove any excess fur. Don't worry about the amount coming off, it will actually help the plumes open. We do not suggest doing this in your home!

  • Separate the fur with your fingers, again, don' worry about the shedding. Once in your vase and in place, it will be fine. 

  • Do not put your pampas in water. 

  • Leave the pampas in its vase for 24/48 hours and let gravity do its thing. They will only get fluffier with time. If they start to go flat, repeat the above process. 

  • For extra fluff, you can use your hairdryer on the cool setting. Be gentle and make sure you don't stand too close. Your stems are fragile. 

  • Keep them away from direct sunlight to keep the gorgeous tones.
