Description

Balloons are a single-use plastic that can harm marine life and the helium that fills them isn’t a renewable substance. In fact helium is vital in medicine and as much as we love balloons we’d rather that helium was used to help heal people. That’s why we stopped selling balloons in August 2021. Removing harmful materials The compost and plant food that we use in containers contain nutrients but these will only last for a few weeks and will then need to be topped up with regular feeding. Slow release fertiliser works really well, removing the need to remember to feed and, when combined with water storage crystals, is perfect for those of us short on time. First, make sure that the vase you have chosen is spotlessly clean - dishwashers and synthetic washing-up liquid can leave behind residue so we suggest cleaning your vase with vinegar or lemon juice and then rinsing well. Using a ceramic vase like our Flower Pot or Flower Jar (link), will also help your flowers to last for longer. Then follow the recipe below - it can easily be scaled up or down depending on the size of your vase. The vinegar lowers the pH of the water, which improves water uptake by the stems. Bleach acts as a disinfectant, helping to prevent bacterial build-up. If you are trying to go greener, you can try cutting out the bleach and using apple-cider vinegar, which has been shown to have antimicrobial properties. For health and safety reasons, please do not exceed these recommended amounts, and do not create in bulk*

From May 2021 we will be cutting the amount of cardboard we use in our hand-tied boxes by 40% – that’s 100 tons less cardboard waste a year (or the equivalent of a Boeing 757 aircraft). Although our cut flowers are delivered with pre-made cut-flower food in a biodegradable sachet, this DIY recipe is great to have on hand. Our gift boxes are made using fully recycled materials. You’ll find the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) logo inside, proof that we’re committed to keeping forests healthy and happy. Plants producing edible crops require more feed than others, especially if you wish to maximise the amount of fruit and vegetables produced. Outdoor crops will benefit from granular feed, such as Potato and Fruit Fertiliser, being raked into the soil before sowing or planting with re-applications during the summer as per the manufacturer's instructions. Like all living things, plants need food and this is where compost and plant food help. Generally, those planted directly in the garden will derive sufficient food through the soil but those in pots and containers will need extra help.One of the key steps is to know your soil type (a simple pH tester is all you need) and to resolve any issues such as poor drainage. Prolonged wet weather can wash nutrients out of the soil and you will need to replace them.
