Always buy flowers that are as fresh as possible and use a florist with a regular turnover. Get to know the days when they have fresh stock in.

  • Faded, marked or shrivelled petals indicates that they are past their best
  • Check for flower heads which may be broken or damaged
  • Leaves should be green with no signs of yellowing
  • Check the bottom of the stems for signs of yellowing or a rotting vegetation odour, which may indicate that the flowers have been stored for some time.
