Called on the off-chance that a delivery could be made on a Saturday and at very short notice. Was not disappointed, the lady who took my call was lovely and so efficient and said it would be no trouble at all. My daughter-in-law and son loved the flowers and said they were gorgeous. Just topped a very happy week with the birth of a beautiful new grandson. Would absolutely recommend Simply Flowers. Brilliant customer service. Thank you

Bowood House and Gardens

Old Rd, Derry Hill, Calne SN11 0LZ, UK – 01249 812102

I had a great day at Bowood House and gardens. The estate is absolutely beautiful and the adventure playground is perfect for children of all ages. I found the house interesting, full of history in art and design. And the shop is full of lovely things to remember the trip.

Lovely well kept stately home. Fair bit of surprising history. Didn’t get to see the garden much as we were at a craft fair. Well worth a visit. Best to stay at the Bowood House hotel if you can which is excellent and just a few minutes by car or 20 minutes walk.

Tips - Caring for your flowers once they are delivered

Placing your flowers in vase half to two thirds full with lukewarm water, will help closed buds to start opening.

  • Be careful when un-wrapping a hand-tied bouquet as it is delivered in a water bubble to keep the flowers fresh.
  • Arranging your flowers in cold water should be avoided as this can reduce the their life in the vase.
  • Avoid puting flowers in metal or aluminium containers - glass is ideal. Keep your flowers in a cool location, away from draughts, direct heat or sunlight. Arrange once unwrapped
  • Your flowers may take up to 24 hours after being placed in water to reach their full potential.
  • Strip off all excess foliage and leaves below the water level to reduce any harmful bacteria within the water.
  • Bacteria can block the stem and stop the flowers taking up the water.unwrap. Flowers like their stems trimmed. So, trim them, at an angle with a knife (rather than scissors) by an inch or so. When trimming stems, always cut at an angle of roughly 45degrees; this increases the surface area allowing your flowers to absorb more water.
  • If a Rose starts to droop at the head, re-cut the stem, wrap the head in paper to support it upright and plunge 5cms of the stem into boiling water for about 30seconds. Cut the stem again and place in deep cold water for two hours.trim

Most orders are accompanied by a sachet of cut flower food which will encourage buds to open and help to prolong the life and beauty of your flowers. Top up regularly with water and flower food, removing any fading flowers. Ensure the floristry foam used in arrangements is moist and topped up daily; this helps to prolong the life and vibrancy of your arrangements.
