care at first sight
Keep fresh flowers away from drafts and extreme temperatures, which can quickly dry out the flowers and cause wilting. If your flowers came in plastic, remove this as soon as possible. Do not place your arrangement in the refrigerator, near fruit or in the path of cigarette smoke as ethylene gas is detrimental to many flower types. Avoid direct sunlight and do your best to place them in cooler conditions where possible as most flowers last longer under these conditions.
keeping them fresh
Keep your vase filled with fresh water! All flower and foliage stems should be submerged. Flowers stay fresher, longer when they are able to eat and drink!
If your flowers were designed within floral foam, be sure to add fresh water every day. Immediately remove dead or wilting leaves and stems from fresh flower arrangements. Pay close attention to your water, when it gets cloudy it’s time to change it out. You can also add a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice to your water to slow down the process of bacteria build up.
changing their water
First remove any dead or dying flowers from the arrangement. After carefully removing the good flowers, clean the vase thoroughly with soapy water to remove any bacteria and rinse thoroughly. Replace the water and mix in the flower preservative provided by your florist, according to the instructions on the packet. For best results, cut stems with a sharp knife at an angle about one to two inches from the bottom to allow them to best absorb water. If possible, use a knife instead of scissors to recut the stems to prevent crushing the stems and obstructing water absorption. Place loose stems or wrapped bouquets in your water mixture as soon as possible.
