How to keep flowers fresh...

fresh flowers how to keep flowers fresh

Flowers must be cut early in the morning and stored in warm water
They must be stored at room temperature before arranging
Sharp knife must be used to cut stems at an angle under running water
Stems must be kept clear of foliage and debris so that they can draw up water
Rotting leaves in the water contaminate it and must be cleared
Containers must be placed in a cool spot away from direct sunlight that dries out and wilts the blooms
Water must be changed every other day
Flower stems submerged in a solution of liquid glycerine last long
Sugar cubes may be added to the water to keep flowers fresh
