Cut blooms

 

Caring for Your Cut Blooms

    all our tips and tricks for how & why.

You've had some floral love sent your way? Or you’re practicing a little self love & bought some blooms at your local florist? Whatever the case, you can make those babies last a whole lot longer with just a little bit of time & care.

Here we’ll take you through a simple step by step on how to better care for your cut blooms & give them their longest vase life.

STEP ONE

Get your vase ready with clean, lukewarm, water. Read our ‘The Perfect Vase Collection’ to help you choose the best vase for your arrangement.

If you have bleach
, add a drop or two of into your vase - this will help keep bacteria from growing in the vase (it’s not enough to kill your blooms).

STEP TWO

Next , on a bench or flat surface, lay your flowers down. With a loose grip, clasp your stems around the pivot point of the arrangement and unwrap your flowers. Some florist will tie string around their arrangements to hold it in place & some will not; we keep a loose grip on the stems because once you take that wrap off, the arrangement could lose its shape if it’s not tied.

STEP THREE

Grab your snips/secateurs. They’ll need to be sharp so they don't crush the tiny vascular system in the stem.

Keeping your loose grip on the stems (we keep it loose so we do not snap any stems), grab your snips and on a 45 degree angle, cut an inch off the bottom of each stem. We cut on an angle for a couple of reasons - firstly because it creates more surface area on the stem for the flower to drink, and secondly, it prevents your flowers from sitting directly on the bottom of your vase, which will block water flow.

We don't want any loose foliage sitting in the water, it’ll create more bacteria in the vase and shorten the vase life of your flowers. If you still have foliage attached to your stems, leave them there - they’ll help the blooms with their hydration process.

STEP FOUR

They’re now ready for the vase. At this point you have a few options; you can cut the string and have your arrangement fan out, keep the string on and have a tighter arrangement, or you can get creative and rearrange your blooms yourself - totally up to you.

 STEP FIVE

Now where to display your blooms? Although they’d look so lovely in the sunny window or just above the lit fireplace, your flowers are starting to wilt at the thought of it; they don’t like the heat. Also, keep them away from your fruit bowl; your fruit produces a gas that will make your blooms age quickly.

Keep them in a cool place, away from direct heat.

 STEP SIX

Flowers are very clever things, every couple of days the stems are going to create a seal where you had previously cut, making it tricky to stay hydrated. Re-cut your stems on an angle every second day, as well as changing the vase water with fresh, lukewarm water.

 

You’ve now properly loved & cared for your fresh cut blooms.

 

Enjoy them,

Tegan

  • I am amazed by Dr Maggi’s remedy. I Have had herpes for over 6 years with frequent outbreaks. Sometimes I average 2-3 times per month. Before one breakout could end, the next would begin. Nothing has helped me. I came online in search for a possible way to see how I can fight this virus so I found Dr Maggi here online after seeing a lot of testimonies of how he cured herpes and other diseases with natural herbs so I decided to give it a try I only took his remedy for two weeks and I was completely cured. I recommend Dr Maggi remedy to anyone suffering from herpes that wants to be completely cured too. Email: drmaggiherbalhome@gmail.com WhatsApp +19179796387

  • I live in USA ohio, I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2 years ago, which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too her name is Doctor Angelina. I email the spell caster and i told her my problem and i did what she asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening , less than two days my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to Doctor Angelina for saving my marriage and for also saving others own too. Continue your good work Dr Angelina.. If you are interested to contact the great spell caster for greater miracles Email address: (angelicmama128@gmail.com ) or whatsApp +17065740033

I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too her name is Doctor Angelina. I email the spell caster and i told her my problem and i did what she asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening , less than two days my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to Doctor Angelina for saving my marriage and for also saving others own too. Continue your good work Dr Angelina..
