Suggestions for Cut Flower Success

​1.  Cutting your own? Cut the stems deep into the plant.  This is better for the plant and gives you a longer stronger stem to work with.

​2.  Remove the bottom leaves from the stem.  Leaves submerged in water make the water murky, promote bacterial growth, and shorten vase life.  

​3.  Place your newly cut flowers in cold water for 3-4 hours, or overnight.  They will hold up better in your vase if allowed to rest before arranging.

4.  When ready to arrange, re-cut the stems at a 45 degree angle.  This keeps blunt ends off the bottom of the vase and helps the plant take in more water.

5.  Change the water in your vase every 2-3 days.
