Keep Cut Flowers Longer

March 14, 2012

Have you ever wondered how to keep your flowers fresh and beautiful longer? Here are some steps to ensuring that your flowers last. These flower care instructions were provided to PracTips by

 1. Replace water often. Warm water is preferred.
2. Even wilted flowers can be revived by submerging them in fresh, warm water in as little as 10 minutes.

3. After a few days, if flowers look wilted do not
hesitate to cut 1 inch off each stem. This allows
the flowers to drink freely again.
4. Place flowers in vase. Do NOT keep near drafts or in direct sunlight! Some flowers will bloom quickly, others more slowly. Buds gradually open in 2-4 days starting from the base. Some buds may remain closed.

5. Don't forget! Add fresh water as often as possible.
6. Prune your flowers of unwanted leaves and blossoms over
time; this will encourage other blooms to open. Follow these instructions and your flowers will thrive and have the longest possible life. Enjoy!
