How to make your flowers last longer:
Certain cut flower varieties last longer than others. Roses have a shorter lifespan than daisies; roses are prized for the delicate beauty when they open. When purchasing flowers, make sure you ask how long the arrangement is expected to last. Whether you choose roses, daisies or a custom mixed arrangement a little care goes a long way to make the blooms last longer. Here are a few tips to make the beauty last!
Keep them cool, but not cold
Flowers do best in a cool location (65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit), away from heating or cooling vents, direct drafts, and direct sunlight. Do not place on top of televisions or radiators (appliances give off heat causing the flowers to wilt).
When flowers arrive designed in foam
Be sure to keep the floral foam soaked in water, add the floral food provided by Bell Flowers and make sure to follow the instructions on the package.
When flowers arrive in a vase of water
Keep the vase filled to the top with water containing flower food provided by Bell Flowers. Follow the directions on the package for optimum results. If the water becomes cloudy, replace all of the water with fresh cool water. If possible, re-cut the stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife (careful not to cut yourself).
Bell Flowers uses a flower food that is specially formulated to hydrate and nourish fresh flowers. It is suitable for all flower varieties and greens, add the packet to one pint of water, stir and re-fill the vase and enjoy!!
