Give them a warm soak! Snip an inch from the woody stemmed blooms like roses and hydrangeas or other flowering shrubs and soak in hot water for about an hr. Since they absorb hot water better than cold. They will last longer.
Pluck these before you plop! Be sure to tear off any leaves that fall below the water line in your vase. Leaves rot quickly underwater. Producing bacteria that cut flower’s life short.
Pick the perfect spot! Keep your bouquet away from fans and air conditioners. Constant air blasts make your blooms droop faster.
Spritz up a longer life! Misting blooms daily is an easy way to extend their beauty. The reason? Flowers can drink with their petals also.
Make your roses stand tall! Roses starting to droop? Prick the stems with a pin beneath the flower head. Then soak them in lukewarm water for an hr. They will assume their original height.
Ward off the wilts! Keep flowers far away from your fruit bowl. The ethylene gas emitted from ripening fruit speeds up the wilting process of your beautiful blooms real friend warms you with their presence, trusts you with their secrets, and remembers you in their prayers.
