Mrs. Greenhands - keeping Valentine's flowers fresh

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, women all over the Bluegrass Region will be expecting flowers from that special person in their life. Here are a few ways to keep your Valentine’s Day flowers fresh and help them last longer.
  • Add floral fresh to the water to help the blooms last longer
  • Change the water if it becomes murky and add more floral fresh.
  • Look for fresh green leaves, but make sure the leaves stay out of the water in the vase. Leaves in the water will cause mold and shorten the life of the flowers.
  • Keep vases away from extreme temperatures. A cool room is the perfect place to keep your blooms happy and healthy.
  • If your roses start to wilt, submerge them in cold water for 30 minutes, re-cutting the stems at an angle.
  • As the flowers start to wilt and die, remove from the arrangement. It may be necessary to use a smaller container to keep the bouquet looking proportional.
