Taking Care of Fresh Flowers

Many people worry that when they get some fresh flowers that it will be tricky to keep them alive and thriving, but this is not true today because there are many tips that can help us out. Plus, there are new technologies which make the whole process a lot easier to deal with. If you are looking for ways to keep your flowers happier and healthier for longer then you have come to the right place. Let's take a look at some great tips, shall we?


The Environment - Where we keep our flowers has a lot to do with whether they thrive or wilt. It is a good idea to keep flowers in a cool, dry place because this is the way they will survive for the very longest amount of time possible. This means to avoid places that are damp and also to avoid direct sunlight. The wind can also damage our flowers so we will want to keep them inside for the best results. Some people also put their flowers in the refrigerator while they are at work to keep them extra long because this puts a massive slow down on the wilting and decay process. Try to keep your flowers in a safe place where they will not be bumped into by people or objects and also out of the reach of pets who may mean well but still wreck the flowers in a playful way.


Nourish Your Flowers - Flowers that have been cut will first off need to be re-trimmed every day or so to keep the stems sending valuable nutrients to the rest of the plant. They also need their water changed each day for the best results. Almost all florists give you free food for the flowers in a small packet, but if you lose this you can either make sugar water or pour a bit of lemon lime soda into the water as well, just a teaspoon will do! This is an easy way to keep your flowers fresher longer.
