Flowers have always been an important element for almost any occasion. Whether it’s a celebration or a time to mourn, they are perfect for giving. But when flowers degrade too quickly, that is disappointing. Whether you are growing flowers on your own or purchasing a bouquet from a leading florist, you would want your fresh-cut flowers to last as long as possible. If you are curious to know how these 4 effective tips will help you out:

Cut the Stems, Always:

After your purchase, always remember to cut the flowers just before placing them in water. An expert florist would already do this for you, so you can have your flowers staying fresh for the next few days. However, you would still have to cut the stems after some days to allow fresh water to penetrate. The rule of thumb is to cut an inch from the bottom at a 45-degree angle, once every three days.

Remove any Foliage:

Make sure to remove any extra leaves at the bottom of the stem before you put the flowers in the vase. Getting rid of foliage that would be underwater will reduce bacteria in the water, thus keeping the water clean. And the energy of the flowers is more focused towards the bloom, thus keeping it fresh and alive for long. A professional florist can help you with this process.

Change Water Periodically:

Clean and fresh water will help flowers last longer. However, water can remain fresh only for a while. This is why it is imperative to take the flowers out of the vase and refill with fresh water every three days. Before that, clean the vase with soap and warm water. Once you replenish with fresh water, remove extra foliage as mentioned earlier, give the stems a fresh cut, and put the flowers back in. A flower shop will offer ‘flower food’ that can help flowers remain fresh for long. With flower food solution, you only need to top up the vase, not replace all the water.

Use the Right Vase:

Yes, it is important that you choose the right sized vase for your cut flowers. If you keep your flowers in a vase that is too narrow, the stems might get damaged. And, if the vase is too wide, it could impact the design. But you don’t have to worry about this if you are purchasing from a florist. An experienced florist knows to choose the right sized container that will be perfect for your fresh-cut flowers.

Expert florists use these above tips to keep flowers fresh as long as possible. Regardless of how well-maintained your arrangement is, placing it in the right spot also matters. Keep it in a cool area where it receives indirect sunlight. And always keep away from fruits and veggies.
