4 Tips To Make Fresh Flowers Last

When someone sends you an arrangement of fresh flowers, what should you do to keep them fresh?
We know flowers don't last forever, but there are some things you can do to ensure that you enjoy them for as long as possible. Check out this guide from Teleflora for details about how to care for specific flowers.

1. Buy Good Flowers

Your local florist has access to the freshest and highest quality flowers available in your area. Local florists also have the best care and handling practices so you can buy with confidence.

2. Keep The Water Fresh

Add fresh water every day to prevent the growth of bacteria that can shorten vase life.

3. Add Some Flower Food

Fortifying the water with flower food can dramatically extend the life of fresh flowers. I give out packets of flower food for free at my shop, but you can also find it online. Make sure you follow the instructions because it's possible to have too much of a good thing.

4. Avoid Direct Sun And Drafts

Sunlight and moving air will cause flowers to dry out. To keep flowers fresh, display them in area that's out of the sun and away from air vents.

Follow these steps and your flowers will stay fresh for much longer.
