  • How Effective are Home Brews, such as Chlorine,Copper Coins,Soda Drinks,Sugar, Asprin Ect

    Flowers and DIY Care and Handling

    The short and the straight, the "Home Brews" all do part of the job but none of them does it all,due to the following.

    * Improper Concentration

    All of them i.e. lack of instruction on proper dosage

    * Chlorine

    Too agressive to plant tissue,clothes and human skin. Dosing must be very precise,and it still gives only a short effectiveness.

    * Copper Coins

    Too slow of a release on reduction of micro-organisms growth and now days very few coins in circulation have a copper content.

    * Soda Drinks

    Small spectrum not a universal product,effect on flower opening and ph reduction.

    * Sugar

    Food micro-organisms, explosive growth followed by stem blocking, short effect on flower development.

    Enviromental Threats

    No registration and labelling for chlorine,overall ineffective or even toxic, high costs per vase.

    Remember: At Boydita Flowers Delivered The Cut flower food comes free with your flowers. Make sure you use the right amount of cut Flower Food for the size of the vase used.(The Best Match) if unsure just ask one of our friendly Team for Professional Advice.
