Do Certain Types of Flowers Last Longer Than Others?
Certain flower varieties happen to last longer than others. For instance, carnations can retain their fresh and vibrant appearance for two to three weeks. On the other hand, roses have a relatively short vase life—that doesn’t stop them from being some of the most popular flowers there are, however.
When you’re buying flowers, our New Jersey florists will be happy to let you know how long you can expect your flowers to last. Whatever flowers you choose, a little TLC goes a long way toward helping them last longer.
What Can I Do To Care for My Flowers?
The most important things to do for your flowers are to:
- Keep them in a cool spot (65-72°F)
- Keep them away from direct sunlight
- Keep them away from heating or cooling vents, direct drafts from a ceiling fan, and the tops of televisions or radiators.
Appliances like televisions and computers give off heat, which can dehydrate flowers.
How Can I Take Care of Flowers with Woody Stems and Branches?
Cut the stem with sharp pruning shears. Place in warm water containing fresh floral food to promote flower opening.
Should I Use Feed My Flowers Floral Food?
Floral food is a combination of additives that are especially nourishing to flowers and can discourage bacteria from growing in their water. Using floral food is an effective and easy way to help your flowers last as long as possible. You should always follow any directions on the floral food packaging very carefully, as improperly mixing it can do more harm than good.
