A Definitive Guide to Preserve Fresh Flowers for Longer Period

Undoubtedly, it’s a true fact that flowers are mute messengers and our greatest silent friends that make the environment lively and full of fragrance. Other than that, there is nothing as stunning and mesmerizing as the fresh bunch of flowers placed in a vase or an attractive bouquet. Each and every flower has its own significance and as a result having a fresh bunch of flowers as a gift from our loved ones makes our day.
As a result, when you receive these flowers from someone special, you try your best to preserve them for a longer period and long to feel the same freshness for a significant amount of time. So, in order to preserve them for a longer time, below are presented some of the best tips by flower delivery London shop.
Let us have a look over those tips:
Tip #1: When you plan to purchase the flowers from a florist shop and put them into a vase, just make sure that:

  • The flowers are being well-packaged with the individual water containers, or
  • The flower stems are being wrapped with the damp paper towels, or
  • You could plan ahead and have a bucket of water with you

This will retain the freshness of flowers for a longer time and as soon as you return home you can arrange it attractively.
Tip #2: When shopping for different flowers, especially roses, you can gently squeeze the rose where the petals meet at the top of the stem. If it is firm, then you can go ahead for its purchase. On the contrary, if it is soft as well as squishy, then you should not buy them as they would be old and can wilt down faster. Majority of the florists opt to keep flowers in refrigerated areas or in a bucket of water while preserving them for longer periods.
Tip #3: Eliminate any kind of greenery from the bottom of the stems that is going to be submerged in the water. This removal of lower leaves will help in keeping the water clearer. Other than that, one can have a look at the stems. At some of the instances, you will also find dried or burnt out stems that need trimming. You could cut-off 1-2” of stems in a bowl of water or running water at 45° angle. This will help in preventing the extra air from going into the stems.
Tip #4: Make use of a sharp knife to get a clean cut on the stems. For thicker stems, you can opt using sharp garden shears. If you are cutting the stems in the absence of water, then just make sure that you get them in water as soon as possible after it is being cut. This is necessary so as to keep them fresh for longer time.
Tip #5: Next thing to do is to use a clean vase for placing the flowers. The vase must be clean and has been washed in hot, soapy water and must be rinsed well. This will remove almost all the microorganisms from the vase while keeping the flowers healthy. Also, fill clean water in the vase in order to thrive the flowers better way.
Thus, these were some of the most important tips that will help in preserving fresh-cut flowers for a longer time. Also, you need to keep in mind that as these flowers are being separated from its roots, they will not get enough nutrients to grow. So, make sure that you feed these flowers with appropriate nutrients to keep them fresh for longer time.

One bonus of owning a Peace Lily is that it cleans the air. All plants take in carbon dioxide and give up oxygen. Exactly the opposite of humans and animals which helps keep the atmosphere balanced.

And it is very easy to take care of, for all you non green thumbs out there. It does not like direct sunlight, though filtered light through a sheer curtain is fine. A west or east window is usually also acceptable. But this plant also tolerates low light with a fair degree of success. More light encourages blooming. Fertilize sparingly.

We recommend that when you receive your Peace Lily……….let it go somewhat dry between watering. When the leaves droop a bit, give it a drink as soon as possible and it will come back. (warning; do not let plant really wilt or it will not come back with the next watering.) Like most house plants, this one does not like over watering or under watering.

Try to remember how many days after watering the plant looked a bit droopy, then water one day before that. It should be approximately 1 week. This will keep your plant happy & healthy with a perfect watering schedule. Water more often in hot and dry locations.

Much of the water you add to a plant simply evaporates. The plant only use part of that water. Plant leaves (and humans) are made up of mostly water.

The Peace Lily, even though called a lily, is not in the lily family and therefore is only mildly toxic to humans and dogs- which is good news for you pet owners!

The Peace Lily is perfect for all occasions from birthdays to funerals, sympathies, offices or new home owners. It is a low maintenance plant with high class elegance.
