Fresh Flower Care FAQs

With Flowers Across Australia, you can send fresh flowers by post in specific states in Australia. For more details, see our Delivery FAQs.

To increase longevity and reduce risk of damage or fading, make sure you keep your fresh flowers away from water, humidity, direct sunlight, wind and drafts.

Adding a Fresh Flower arrangement to a room can really make a statement, but placement is key. First, you want to select a place that will ensure your flowers don’t get damaged, so pick a spot out of direct sunlight, and with low humidity. 

Be sure to pair your arrangement with a vase or vessel that is appropriately sized and has a  colour and texture that compliments the natural beauty of your fresh blooms. Organic shapes and natural textures look great with fresh flowers. As for colours, stick to clear glass, muted earthy tones, metallics or pastels. 

Ensure that the colours surrounding the arrangement work with the neutral and muted tones of your fresh blooms. Our fresh arrangements often look great against a crisp white wall, or paired with other pastels and neutrals.
