How to make flowers last


Wow, so you have received a wonderful bunch of flowers, lucky you! Here are 4 simple florist tips to extend the life of your flowers.

1. Choose a cool place to display you flowers. Keep them away from direct sunlight and air drafts, even cool air will evaporate the moisture.

2. Keep them hydrated, top up the water in an arrangement, and change the water regularly in a vase or bouquet. Remove any submerged leaves as they will generate bacteria in the water.

3. Trim the flower stems every few days by cutting about 1cm from the bottom. Do the same for greenery.

4. Immediately remove any dead flowers or wilting leaves from the arrangement to limit the spread of bacteria.

Enjoy your flowers. Care for them and you will maximise their life.
