Fresh Flower Care
While fresh flowers are perfect for brightening any day, it’s important to look after your flowers properly if you want them to look great for as long as possible. CBD Flowers provides a number of helpful tips to help you get the most out of your fresh flowers.
Choose the Right Vase
The first step is to choose the right sized vase. Your vase should be roughly half the height of your bouquet. It’s also important to ensure the vase is clean before filling it.
Fill Your Vase with Water
The next step is to fill your vase with room temperature water − make sure it’s not too hot or too cold! You can add a flower preservative if you wish, but you should check with us to ensure this won’t harm your particular flowers.
Clean and Cut the Stems
To prevent bacteria growing in the water, you must clean all flower stems before placing them in the vase. You can do this by stripping all leaves below the water level. Once this is done, the stems should be cut at an angle and immediately placed in water.
Choose a Suitable Location
Location is everything when it comes to fresh flowers. Make sure you choose a spot away from direct sunlight, bright light, draughts and heat to ensure your flowers don’t wilt.
We recommend topping up the water in the vase regularly, and changing the water entirely after 2 to 3 days. For more tips on caring for your fresh flowers, contact CBD Flowers today.
