- Provide enough water. It’s no secret that plants need water to live, even those that have been cut and provided as gifts. When you get your flowers, immediately check the water level and add to the vase if needed. It’s important that stems be submerged in water. Change the water regularly, such as when it gets cloudy, and thoroughly cleaning your vase with soap to kill off any bacteria that could be harmful to your stunning flowers. Plant food is also an excellent source for healthy blooms.
- Remove debris. As certain blooms begin to fade, it’s important to remove any dying flowers or leaves from your arrangement. Just clip these off or remove the entire stem. This will help to keep your bouquet healthy and fresh. As you check the water for your flowers, don’t forget to grab out those pesky leaves or petals that have fallen in.
- Groom your blooms. No, we don’t mean you have to brush their petals and have them looking clean cut enough to attend a formal event. However, clean cut isn’t too far off. After a few days, it’s important to give your blooms a fresh cut. Cutting them at an angle, provides them with a fresh cut and allows them to consume water more efficiently. As a reminder, do not use scissors to cut your flowers, as this will crush the stem and prevent it from absorbing water. Instead, use a sharp knife.
Your Valentine’s Day flowers don’t have to be a very temporary gift. You can make the most of them and have them last longer with the right flower care.
