Gerbera & Germini
These flowers are top heavy and will often naturally droop. It is always a good idea to wire them. Please refer to our web site and watch the video on how to do this.
Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers). Keep the gerbera in a cool place and always keep out of the way of children.
Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
Fill sterilised buckets with luke warm water and add flower food plus a drop of bleach.
Place the gerbera in the buckets upright with the heads supported.
Leave over night to condition before using.
Because Gerbera are a 'top heavy' flower it is always a good idea to wire the stems if time allows.
