Cut flowers they'll love from The Olde Watermill in Bedfordshire 

The knowledgeable staff in the The Olde Watermill here in Barton-le-Clay can help you choose just the right bouquet of cut flowers. Think about the style of the person you're buying for: are they a chintzy, cosy sort of a person? If so, they'll love romantic flowers like freesias, roses and sweetpeas in delicious scents and pastel shades. Funkier, more alternative types might like an exciting combination of brilliant colour from gingers, anthuriums, calla lilies and  orchids. And if you know of a favourite colour or flower, make sure you include it.

Caring for your cut flowers from The Olde Watermill

Cut flowers from our Bedfordshire garden centre are delivered to you as fresh as possible but you can extend their life still further by giving them a little extra care when you get home. Remove lower leaves, then trim off the ends of the stems with a sharp knife to create a newly-cut surface which absorbs water more efficiently.

Keeping your cut flowers from The Olde Watermill happy

Use clean tap water for your flowers and make sure you top it up regularly – cut flowers take up far more water than you might think! Changing the water every few days keeps it clear, too.

Ask for a few extra sachets of soluble plant food from the cut flower department: these supply all the nutrients your flowers need and is easy to add to the water just before you put the flowers in. You'll need an extra sachet each time you change the water, though: one sachet is good for about a pint of water.

Another really good tip for keeping the water clear and fresh: add a quarter of a teaspoonful of bleach to the water as well. It'll prevent micro-organisms from multiplying. Treated well, your cut flowers give you weeks of sheer, beautiful pleasure.
