Each of our unbelievably realistic artificial bouquets are thoughtfully arranged and hand-tied by our skilled florists. We have colour themes to suit every taste and space, whether you're brightening your own home or giving them as a lasting gift.
Everything you need to know
- Longer life
Artificial flower arrangements like this can last a lifetime with next to no care. Compare this to a bunch from the supermarket which may last for a couple of weeks at best before ending up in the compost.
The initial outlay on a top-notch bunch of faux flowers may seem hefty. But when you consider the lifetime cost verses buying and replacing real flowers, you'll quickly be in credit.
- An easier life
Your life is probably hectic enough without picking up dead leaves or cleaning pollen stains off the table. Going faux is a simple way to simplify your life while enjoying year-round colour.
Suffer from hay fever? Join the club. Buying yourself (or gifting) a gorgeous faux arrangement is an easy way to sidestep the sniffles while enjoying all the other benefits lush flowers bring to your home.
Fancy a bunch of tulips in September? Or a bunch of sunflowers in January? No problem. Artificial flower arrangements don't care about seasonal vibes and are available all year round.
- Roses are not green
Did you know cut fresh flowers are frequently flown in from warmer climates. Or they're grown in large, heated greenhouses in Europe. For a product that only lasts a few short weeks, it's not overly green. An artificial version may not seem green, but the unlimited lifespan quickly offsets the cost of creating it.

Each stem in your bouquet has an internal wire which is coated in plastic. Depending on the stem, this wire can fairly lightweight or pretty thick. Thicker wires can be slighter harder to cut.
- Measure the height of your vase.
- Take the vase measurement and measure from the bottom of the flowers and foliage area towards the bottom of the stem.
- Mark the measurement and cut any remaining stem off.
- If in doubt, leave the stems a little longer. You can always trim them again.
To cut the stems, we recommend using strong wire cutters. If you don't have any of these to hand use pliers or scissors to score the plastic. Then bend them one way, then the other, which will weaken the wire to the point it breaks cleanly.
Faux flower arrangements are both beautiful and
low no maintenance. However there are still a couple of things you can do to keep them looking fresh for years to come.
- Don't use them outside
These flowers may be pretty but they're not designed for outside use. We'd also recommend not siting them on windowsils for long periods of time.
- Keep them clean
Dust is the enemy of artificial flowers and is a telltale sign of faking it. Fortunately fauxs are easy to clean with a damp cloth or wetwipe. For the more intricate stems, take the arrangement outside and give them a gentle shake.
