Tips For Keeping Cut Flowers Fresh Longer

Tips For Keeping Cut Flowers Fresh Longer

21st Feb 2023

Cut flowers are a beautiful and timeless addition to any home, but they can wilt and lose their beauty quickly if not taken care of properly. At Nancy's Floral, we understand the importance of keeping cut flowers fresh for as long as possible. That's why we've put together these tips to help you keep your cut flowers looking their best for longer.

Choosing Fresh Flowers

Choosing fresh flowers is the key to keeping cut flowers fresh for as long as possible. When you visit a Portland flower shop like Nancy's Floral, it is important to look for blooms that are fully open and in good condition, with no signs of wilting or discoloration. These are the flowers that are most likely to last the longest in your home.

Storing Flowers Properly

Once you have brought your fresh flowers home, it is important to store them properly to help maintain their freshness. The ideal storage location is a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources. These conditions can cause flowers to wilt and fade more quickly, so it is important to keep them out of these areas.

Preparing The Vase

Before you arrange your cut flowers, it is important to clean your vases thoroughly. Bacteria can quickly build up in vases, which can cause flowers to wilt and fade more quickly. By cleaning your vases before arranging your flowers, you can help maintain the freshness of your blooms.

Maintaining Freshness

There are several steps you can take to help keep your cut flowers fresh for as long as possible. Use water at a temperature between 60-70°F. Add flower food to the water in your vase to help keep the flowers fresh for longer. Change the water regularly to prevent bacteria from building up in the vase. Trim stems regularly to ensure that flowers are getting the maximum amount of water and nutrients they need to stay fresh.
