When you receive your artificial plant it will need a little bit of arranging - or dressing out - in order to looks it's best. Please watch our short video or read on to find out the best way to do this.
Most of our artificial plants have wired branches, fronds and foliage which means you can simply bend or reshape them by hand until they are in the desired position. Either use the image from our website or Google an image of the natural plant and manipulate the product until you are satisfied. You can be quite firm with our products - they won't break easily!
Some of the leaves may have become slightly creased in the box. You can normally straighten these out using your hands. Any remaining creases will naturally drop out within a few days. If you'd rather not wait you can apply some low heat to the foliage either using an iron or hair straighteners. Please cover the foliage with a piece of material before applying any heat and make sure it is not too hot otherwise it may damage the material or worse be a fire hazard.
Each of our products will need slightly different levels of 'dressing.' For example, the paradise palm tree (pictured in the video) can be arrange by simply bending the foliage into an arch shape. Alternatively our boxwood items will be slightly flat on one side (because they are laying flat in the box) which needs to be 'fluffed' out so that it looks like a trimmed natural topiary item.
