Remove the flowers from the box by cutting the straps, but don’t remove the rubber bands that hold the flower stems together.
Remove sleeves pro-tecting flower heads and then remove outer guard petals of the roses.
Fill your container with 4-6 inches of fresh, room temperature water.
Mix the packet of in-cluded flower food in the water to protect the flowers and provide ad-ditional nutrients.
Cut the stems diago-nally under running water with a sharp knife or scissors, one inch from the stem’s bottom edge.
Place the stems in the prepared water and watch them come to life! Remove the rubber bands and remove any leaves that fall below the water line to increa-se the vase life.
Change water every two days for increased vase life. Keep flowers in a cool location, away from direct sunlight and drafts.
Do's & Don'ts
Do not let the roses receive direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat. Leave the roses in a warm area or spot if you want them to bloom. Leave the roses in a cooler area if you want to slow down the opening process. If a flower wilts or becomes limp, remove it from the arrangement. Then cut the bottom inch of the stem and place the flower into flower food solution for about an hour. It´s better if the water is warm.
Your flowers have been cut to order and professionally packaged at the farm. So what's next?!
All Flower Explosion orders are placed in the trusted care of FedEx. Your blooms are transported in modern refrigerated cargo planes and kept in cold storage throughout their journey. You will receive an email from us with the tracking number(s) once the order ships. You may track progress on the Fedex website. We offer weekday delivery Monday thru Friday.
Your delivery date has arrived! The flowers are loaded on the truck and delivered to your door. FedEx does not provide an exact delivery time, but deliveries are typically made between 10am and 5pm, though it is largely dependent on the service available at the recipient's address.
You want your flowers to arrive fresh and in good condition, right? So do we!
That's why FedEx requires a signature upon delivery to ensure flowers are not left outside exposed to weather conditions such as excessive heat, cold, sun, rain or any other risk. Please have someone present at the delivery address to sign for and receive the flowers.
Don't want to reveal a surprise or nobody will be home? No problem! If you would like the flowers to be delivered without a signature, please contact us at least three days before your scheduled delivery date and we will make the request for you. Alternatively, you may write a signed note stating no signature is required and leave it in a location visible to the FedEx driver. Please keep in mind either request method relieves the shipper of responsibility should the packages be stolen or their content damaged once FedEx has left the packages unattended. FedEx does not guarantee all requests will be honored. If the delivery attempt is missed, please call FedEx at 800-463-3339 and provide your tracking information to reschedule or arrange pickup.
Please double check the delivery address entered for accuracy before placing your order. We cannot easily make corrections or changes once the tracking number and shipping label have been created. A $20 fee will be assessed for any changes made to the delivery address once the tracking has been generated. Any address change after the product has shipped may result in delays as the package may need to be rerouted.
