How can I make my flowers last longer?
Certain varieties of cut flowers last longer than others. Carnations and Orchids, for example, can remain vibrant for long period of time. Tulips have a shorter vase life, but are prized for their special and delicate beauty. When buying flowers, be sure to ask your florist how long you should expect your arrangement to last.  Here are a few handy tips that can help add days to their beauty!

Essentials for your flowers
Keep them in a cool spot between 20 to 25 degrees Celsius, away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, direct drafts from a ceiling fan, and on top of televisions sets or radiators. (Electronic devices like televisions give off heat, causing flowers to dehydrate).
When your flowers arrive in the form of hand bouquet

Option 1 : Transfer the bouquet into a vase filled with water. You may or may not remove the wrapping paper.

Option 2 : Add about 3/4 glass of water to the bouquet everyday.


When your flowers are arranged in vase or basket

Replace the water every 2 days and make sure the vase is washed entirely.

If the water becomes cloudy sooner than 2 days, replace it entirely. If possible, cut the stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife.

Remove leaves that are below the waterline. Leaves in water will promote bacterial growth that can harm the flowers.


When your flowers have woody stems and branches
Cut the stem with sharp pruning shears. Place in room temperature fresh water to promote flower opening.
 You can also choose to add floral food to prolong the life of the flower.
What is floral food and why use it?
Floral food is a combination of additives that help to nourish the flowers and discourage bacteria from growing in the water. It is one of the best and easiest ways to extend the life of your flowers. It is very important to follow the directions on the package correctly. Improperly mixed floral food can do more harm than good.
