A bouquet of fresh flowers can brighten up any room, but before long, they start to wilt and die. Taking proper care of your flowers will help them last longer, but there's no need to buy fancy preservative. Follow these steps by George Thomas Florist to keep your flowers living longer.
This is a natural sign that bacteria are growing in the water. Bacteria can clog stems and shorten the vase life of flowers, so keep the water clear at all times to ensure the longevity of your blooms. If your water starts to turn cloudy, immediately empty the vase and add fresh water, preferably mixed with the floral food provided by your florist. Re-cut the stems with a sharp knife under warm water before placing them in the vase of fresh water.
