If you simply toss your bouquet of flowers in a vase and don’t show it any TLC later on, you won’t enjoy its beauty for too long. With these effective tips you can make your cut flowers last longer – and without too much effort!
5 simple steps to increase the life of your cut flowers
Once you bring the bouquet home, immediately cut off the ends of the stalks with a sharp knife. It is best not to use scissors, since they may crush the stalk.
You should thoroughly rinse and fill your vase with fresh water before each use.
To keep leaves from rotting, snip off all the leaves that are in the water.
Change the water in the vase daily for best results.
The flowers should ideally be placed in a spot that is away from any heaters or fruit bowls. The flowers should also not be exposed to direct sunlight.
