Cut-Flower Care












Whether bringing home a bouquet to put in a vase or an arrangement already in glass, you’ll need to take care of your cut flowers to keep them fresh longer. Here’s what to do a few days after you bring home your flowers:

  • use clean, warm water to refill your vase (unless you have an arrangement of bulb flowers which like cold water). Warm water is easier to absorb.
  • cut your stems at a 45 degree angle so that more of the stem’s surface can absorb water and so the stems don’t sit flat on the bottom of the vase.
  • use clippers if you have them! Scissors can crush the stems and make it difficult for them to absorb water.
  • make sure to remove any leaves that sit below the water line so that they don’t break down.
  • flowers with woody stems (like lilac) should be split at the base (cut vertically up one inch) so they can absorb water better
  • hot water will make flowers bloom quicker if they are closed up when you get them
  • refill water regularly and recut any wilted flowers
  • remove any fully wilted flowers so they don’t break down and spoil the others
  • keep arrangements out of direct sunlight

There you go! Those tips can help your flowers last over a week. Enjoy those beautiful blooms!
