I learned a few things over the years, working in the floristry world, here’s a few tips that you can put to action to make your flowers last and last, trust me these are definitely worth doing because they will make all the difference!

Firstly, sorry to state the obvious but freshly cut flowers need WATER and lots of it! So make sure your flowers have ample water. Whether they are arranged in a vase or in floral foam top up the water every couple of days.

Second, the water that the flowers are in has to be clean, as bacteria builds up over time and shortens the lifespan of flowers. To avoid this, empty out the water and replace with clean water. It only takes a minute or two and your flowers will thank you for it!

How to look after your bouquet of flowersTrim the stems every time you change the water, this will help revitalise your flowers.

Use flower food, it really does help. Just follow the instructions on the packaging to get the most out of the flower food.

Keep away from direct sunlight and heating, heat shortens the life of freshly cut flowers.

Lastly pull out or cut off any sad blooms and the rest of the buds will slowly open.
