One of the top questions we are asked from our customers is, “How do we care for our flowers?” and “How long will our arrangements last?” From a single bud, small arrangement or an abundance arrangement, just a little extra care can make a huge difference. Most floral arrangements last from 4 to 7 days, depending on the types of flowers used and the type of care they receive. Here are some specific tips to keep your flowers looking beautiful:
Keep the vase filled or floral foam soaked with water containing flower food.
If the flower food solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely.
If possible, recut stems by removing one or two inches with a sharp knife.
Use warm water when adding water to the vase or refilling it.
Keep flowers in a cool spot (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit), away from direct sunlight.
Avoid heating or cooling vents, areas directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions or radiators.
Appliances such as televisions and radiators give off heat, causing the flowers to quickly dehydrate.
