Cut Flower Care

You just received a beautiful flower arrangement. With proper care you can extend the life of the flowers. Here are a few tips to help you.

Care Tip #1 – Keep the flowers hydrated. Keep vases and other containers filled with water. This is done by adding a little water every day.

Care Tip #2 – Change the water if it becomes cloudy. It may be difficult to tell in any floral container other than a clear vase. Pour the old water out and add new water.  If possible, re-cut the flower and foliage stems.  Cut a half inch off every stem and place back into the fresh water.

Care tip #3 – Keep flowers in a cool area away from direct light, air vents, or anything that puts off heat. Cool conditions (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) will help the flowers last longer.

These are just a few ways to ensure your flowers will last a long time.
