4 Tips to Care for Your Flower Arrangements, Branford Center, Connecticut

There’s nothing quite like the smell of a beautiful flower arrangement. Whether your blooms are brightening up the dining room or sitting on your desk at the office, the professionals at Myers Flowers in Branford, CT, want to help you keep your arrangement in the best condition possible. To increase the life span of your blossoms, these experts have a few helpful pointers for you. 

Try following these four tips for a beautiful arrangement that will last:

  • flower-arrangementPut It in a Vase: As soon as you get your flower arrangement to its desired location, put it into a vase with some water. They should have ample room, as this will help prevent them from wilting too soon. Often, floral companies will include a packet with the arrangement that contains sugar and other chemicals to help prevent bacteria growth. However, if you don’t have one of these, dissolving an aspirin in the water also works. 
  • Keep the Water Fresh: To help your floral arrangement last as long as possible, make sure the blooms always have enough water and that the water is clean. When you need to refill it with a fresh supply, wash the vase thoroughly, as well—doing so will help prevent wilting and will keep your arrangement available for display for a longer period of time.
  • Re-Cut the Stems: Over time, the stems on your flowers will deteriorate. As such, they will need to be removed before they begin to grow bacteria and rot. To avoid this problem, take the blooms out of the vase and cut an inch off the bottom every three days or so. 
  • Keep Them in the Right Spot: Your flower arrangement will continue to grow if it’s in the right environment, so be mindful of where you place it. Keeping it in full sunlight or areas that become overly hot will cause the blossoms to wilt quickly—instead, store them in a cool, shady place.
