How to extend the life of cut flowers.
People all over the world are using flowers for so many different reasons. To entertain, to brighten up their homes, as gifts, as rewards, to say sorry, to say get well. Just how would we show our appreciation without flowers. Flowers are a gift for everyone.
We are fortunate to have so many resources and the help of the world wide web for choosing flower delivery.
Flowers go so much further than just displaying them in a vase and here are a few ideas on how to prolong your flowers and keep them aesthetically pleasing past their vase date.
Tips for making flowers last
Pre-ordered flower bouquets always arrive with a sachet of flower food. Use it and feed your flowers by adding it to the vase water. Changing water regularly will prolong the freshness of your flowers and using a clean vase is a must.
Use a flower press
A really cute idea in which you can get the kids involved also. A flower press enables you to preserve and dry a special flower. You could frame your pressed flowers or keep them somewhere special but be sure to use delicate flat flowers that will press easily.
Display dried flowers
Being creative is good for the soul and a craft you can do at home using flowers will brighten up a door hook or fireplace in an instant. Hanging cut flowers from a regular hook using twine in a warm dry room will give you a seasonal display.You could use any particular flowers for this as long as they are hardy.
