Fresh Cut Flower & Arrangements Care

 

 

 

Preservative Solution

Mix the contents of a flower preservative packet with tap water or distilled water according to the directions on the packet. Do not use water from a home or commercial water softener. Use this solution to fill your vase or to add water to your arrangement.

 

Care for Floral Arrangements

Check the water level of the vase or container daily. Add your preservative solution whenever the water level has gone down. Place your arrangement in a cool location, out of direct sunlight. Avoid excessively hot or cold locations.

 

Care for Fresh Cut Flowers

When you get your flowers home, give the stems a fresh diagonal cut and remove all leaves that will be beneath the water level. Place the flowers in a vase that has your preservative solution. Display them in a cool location, out of direct sunlight. Avoid excessively hot or cold locations. For best results, re-cut the stems and change the preservative solution daily.
