As summer is approaching and the sun is shining we thought it would be appropriate to tell you guys some of our favorite tricks to keeping our flowers fresh and beautiful longer:
Do not keep flowers in a hot car
If you are planning to stop by a floral shop and then head off to work, maybe you should think again! Letting flowers sit in that hot of an environment can cause them to wilt faster.
Check the water level in your vase everyday
If you do not check the water levels in your vase the flowers may not have any which will make them die faster.
Keep in a cool location away from sunny windows
This is just like leaving them in a hot car, if you keep the flowers next to a window will cause the flowers to get hot and wilt quicker.
Keep flowers away from fruit
Ripening fruit gives off a an odorless invisible gas called ethylene, this gas is completely harmless to humans but will cause your flowers to die quicker.
Cut and recut flowers every time you take them out of water
When you cut the flowers stems you are exposing the flowers to fresh tissue that will help them be able to absorb water more efficiently and keeping them alive longer.
Hope these few basic tips help your flowers last longer and brighten your home this summer season.
