When buying a beautiful bouquet for Mom or a blooming plant, show off your smarts by sharing these handy tips from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM:
CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF!Remove all leaves from the stem that fall below the waterline in the vase so they don?t cause any bacterial growth.
CUT TO THE IMPORTANT STUFF!Use a knife or shears to cut an inch from the bottom of the stem while holding it under water. This allows the stem to draw in the water, instead of air.
CHANGE IS GOOD!Keep cut flowers and arrangements looking fresh by adding cool water to the vase every day. Always keep the vase full, and change the water every three to four days.
KEEP COOL!For maximum longevity, recut the stems whenever you change the water and keep the vase in a cool spot.
