General Care and Handling

When you receive a bunch of flowers from The FlowerChild, please fill a clean vase with cold tap water — one-third full for single varietal and two-thirds full for mixed varietal bunches. Add the flower food sachet. When the water becomes discoloured, change it, about every 2-3 days.

Please keep your flowers out of direct sunlight and away from any draft or heat sources, like air conditioners or fireplaces. You will need to keep an eye on the water level; we suggest that vases and containers are not overfilled but rather topped up every second day or so. Some flowers may drink a lot of water and you may need to refill more regularly. 

If you have any questions, you can always email us on info@theflowerchild.co.za and we will get back to you as soon as possible. 

Some varietals require special flower care. View care info.

Delivery

All residential subscription deliveries are made on a Thursday (at the discretion of The FlowerChild). All corporate subscription deliveries are made on a Monday.

The FlowerChild will do its utmost not to interrupt delivery of subscriptions but we cannot guarantee this and accept no liability for any interruption of service in the event of any cause beyond our reasonable control, which results in a delivery being impractical or impossible.
