Keep your flowers beautiful and fresh with these tips and tricks from our flower experts for Flower Bouquets.Place in a clean vase 💐
Store the flowers in a clean vase filled with cold tap water up to two-thirds full. The cleaner your vase, the lesser the bacteria and the longer your flowers bloom. Please remember to change the water every 2-3 days to avoid bacteria build-up around the stems.
Place in a cool area 🌬️
Arrange the taller stems at the back and the short ones at the front. Also, you don't have to stick to just glass vases. Switch it up with jugs or teapots for a vintage look!
Place your flowres in a cool room or shaded area. Avoid direct air-conditioning, direct sunlight, extreme heat, dust, fruits and vegetables. All of these conditions may make your flowers wilt faster."Feed" your flowers 😋
Yes, flowers need to "eat" too! While changing the water is just as effective for making flowers last longer, adding flower food can extend the life of the flowers by combating bacteria in the water. Just be sure to follow the instructions on the package carefully.
Re-cut stems ✂️
Flowers and plants get nutrients through photosynthesis. However, since the flowers/plants are cut and removed from their roots, the process of photosynthesis is no longer available. This is why flower food is crucial!
By cutting the flower stems just before placing them back in a fresh batch of water, you remove the tissue on old stem cuts and expose new ones. This ensures good water absorption, thus boosting their hydration and longevity. You should cut the flower stems around two inches from the bottom of the vase.
Remove wilting petals 🥀
Cut the stems at an angle and repeat every few days. Doing this gives your flowers as much surface area as possible to drink. #StayHydrated
Flowers bloom and wilt at different times. When a flower begins to wilt, remove the petals or the whole flower from the arrangement. Removing wilted flowers can help avoid the spread of bacteria to the other flowers.Mist flowers daily 💦
Spray with clean tap water once a day to give the flowers extra hydration. Flowers can absorb water from places other than the base of its stems. Use a bottle with a fine mist setting and spray from 6 inches to 1 foot away from the flowers to ensure an even coverage.
