One of the reasons we love carnations is they’re also very long lasting, with a vase life of up to 3 weeks if you’re lucky! Of course, you can help them to thrive and look beautiful for longer by following our care tips:
Step 1: When your carnations arrive, trim 2-3cm off the stems and remove any leaves that will fall below the waterline.
Step 2: Fill your vase with room temperature water, and add the flower food.
Step 3: Put your carnations in the vase - try to use a slightly wider vase, so they’re not packed too tightly. This will help them to bloom even more beautifully.
Step 4: Display the flowers in a cool, light area, away from draughts, heat, direct sunlight, and fresh fruit.
Step 5: Change the water every 2 days and re-trim the stems to keep your carnations well hydrated.
