While 800Flower strives to deliver the freshest, longest lasting, beautiful flowers, you can make them last much longer with a little care and a lot of love.
The following tips will help make your flowers last longer.
Remove the plastic and wrapping as soon as possible. Cut half an inch of the stem and place the flowers in a clean vase of room temperature water
Flowers need a lot of clean water! Keep the vase full to ensure the flowers do not dry out and wilt. Remove any dead or dying leaves, and remember to trim the stems often.
Sun and heat will encourage them to “age” and reduce their freshness. Instead, keep your flowers in a cool area.
Add flower food packets that can be purchased from any store. You can make your own flower food with 1 teaspoon of sugar, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice and a 1 teaspoon of bleach, and a quart of warm tap water. Do not add flower food with zinnias, sunflowers and glads.
A sharp knife will ensure stems are not crushed and water is well absorbed. Do not use scissors if possible.
