Fresh flowers can freshen up any dull room, & make your day as they express someone’s emotions for you. But the life of fresh flowers is generally short & they are easily perishable. Here are some tips to keep them fresh longer.
1…When you buy flowers try to buy most of them still in bud. They will have longer vase life & you will get the pleasure of watching them slowly open up.
2…Crush and split the bottom of the woody steamed flowers like Rose to take up water easily.
3…. Always cut rose’s stem holding it & sharp scissor under water like water filled sink or a big vessel to prevent getting an air bubble in the stem which can cause the rose heads to drop.
4…To lengthen the life of flowers snap their stems on a slant with a sharp knife to expose more stem surface & wash away the sticky white secretion.
5… Cut the stems another inch or so whenever you change the water. In this way by the end of the week, you will have shorter, but still alive bouquet
6… If you want to extend the life of your flower arrangement than put it in the coldest room of your house before going to sleep.
