How to make your flowers last longer

Dernière mise à jour : 12 mars 2021

You just got nice flowers/bouquet but you really do not know how to care and preserve them.

Easy as 1,2,3...4 points:


- CUT & WATER

Once you pour water into your favorite vase, cut the stems and place them in your vase. The cutting should be on a bevelled edge so the flowers can drink better.

Repeat this everyday if you want your bouquet to last longer: cut stems (about 1.5cm) & change water.

The fresher the water, the better the flowers as it won't let time to bacterias to develop.


-- LEAVES

Take away all the leaves that could be in the water. The stems need to be super clean, otherwise the water will get dirty quickly.


- COOL PLACE

Try to find a place where it is not to warm. Never place your bouquet close to the heating, computer or even fruits, because it makes the flowers die sooner.


- DIRECT SUN

There is a misconception when we talk about cut flowers and Sun. Let's be clear: your flowers are dead since they had been cut in their field. And the Sun will just accelerate their death. If you place them somewhere shady, they will last longer.



- EXCEPTIONS:

Lilac: do not cut the stems! For all of those "wooden" stems, you will need to cut in the middle or even smash the extremity of the stem with a hammer to stimulate the sap.

Tulips: they do not need much water. If they are a bit down when you receive them, just wrap them entirely in humidified paper with lukewarm water. Also, tulips continue to grow while in a vase.

Gerbera: not too much water neither

Poppies: never cut the stem but cauterise them by burning the extremity of the stem with a lighter.
