There are a lot of different flowers that are used in designing and creating flower arrangements. Mixed flower bouquets are well-known in the flower industry and it is recommended a gift for occasions, events and celebrations. We are here to give some advice on how to take good care of your flowers.
Here are our care guide and tips:
Cut the stems using sharp knife
Remove the dry and dead part
Wash the vase regularly
Germs grow in unclean vases that’s why you don’t wait for it to dry. Before you add water, the vase is again packed with bacteria and the same bacteria that killed the last bouquet are targeting for your new bouquet. You can use hot soapy water in cleaning your vase. Let your flowers stay in a fresh and clean environment.
Change water every now and then
Flowers needs a lot of water! Every day the flowers drink the water in the vase. Maintain the vase full of water to prevent flowers from drying out and wilting. Flowers are also very susceptible to bacteria which grow in the water as stems. When you change the water in your vase every day your flowers can keep fresh longer and stop the awful, rotting scent that comes with long periods. When refilling water in your vase, gently pour water in at the top of the flowers.
Avoid direct to sunlight
Flowers are unhappy to stay in sunny areas. Flowers has a lot of similarities with a human skin that is sensitive in a very hot environment. They will quickly dry when you are placing in bright light like near windows, and cooling vents.
Use flower foods
If you are forgetful and won’t be able to change water on your vase regularly, then flower food is helpful as well and make sure to follow the mixing directions. These food packets contain bactericide that keeps the water fresh and stays longer. But, take note some flowers actually do not like flower food like sunflowers.
