Keep Your Cut Flowers Fresh--Cut The Stems

June 7 2016
Everyone knows that cut flowers make excellent gifts for all occasions. Though they’re far from permanent, they add a touch of color and can brighten everyone’s day. One common myth is that once you receive a bouquet, it dies quickly and cannot really be preserved. With proper care, you’ll be able to enjoy your bouquet for days. Here are a few tips to help you keep your flowers looking fresh.
  • As soon as you get the chance, trim the flower stems. You’ll want to remove ¾” from each stem to remove any part that may have dried out since they were cut at the store. Be sure to cut at an angle so the flower will be able to get water more easily.
  • Put your bouquet in water as soon as you cut the stems. Keeping the stems hydrated will prevent your flowers from drooping hours after you receive them.
  • Use a sharp knife or kitchen shears to cut the stems. Dull blades can crush the stem, damaging the flower’s remaining vascular system.
  • Use the included plant food in your vase. This powder is specially formulated to keep your cut flowers happy longer and will prevent drooping or petal curling for several days.
  • Be sure to use a clean vase. Vases that have not been washed thoroughly may contain bacteria that can cause your flowers to weaken and die prematurely.
Keep your flowers in a cool place. Exposing them to intense heat or sunlight can damage them.
We hope these tips will help you preserve your beautiful bouquet. If you have questions or would like to place an order, contact us today!
