How to make your flowers last longer

How to make your flowers last longer

So, you’ve just bought or received a nice bouquet of flowers? Nice going! Of course, you want to do your best to maintain the freshest flowers for as long as possible.

From a bunch of red roses to a beautiful bouquet of daisies and everything in between, it is always nice to look at a beautiful set of flowers! Be it simply for aesthetic reasons, to celebrate an occasion, or any other reason, we are here to help you.

Long lasting flowers

A way of making your flowers last longer is to change the water they are regularly, ideally once every second day. This gives them more nutrients to absorb and use to survive for longer!

Give your flowers some nutrients

Giving your flowers something to consume will also help you save your flowers, with some different types of foods and liquids being put into your water assisting the preservation of your flowers. These include a teaspoon of sugar, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, a few drops of a clear spirit such as vodka, a couple of drops of bleach, and even aspirin tablets.

By doing this, you can help minimise the growth of bacteria in your flower’s water, as well as providing your flowers with the nourishment they would’ve received had they not been cut.

Spray the petals

Flowers do not just take in nutrients through their stems, they also take some nutrients in through their stems, and so it is also a wise idea to lightly spray them with water through a mister bottle.
