How to Make Fresh Flowers Look Their Best

Want to keep your blooms lasting longer? Follow a few of these simple cut flower care ideas and you will keep your blooms vibrant and long lasting.

Keep the bacteria in the water low

Be sure to use a clean the vase, fill it with room-temperature water mixed with a G.G. Floral Life extender packet, which is included with your flowers.  The Floral life extender is basically sugar that helps keep the bacteria count in the water low.

Re-cut the stems

Re-cut the stems, every few days.  Remove ¾” from the bottom of the stem, cutting the stems on an angle is the best for the flowers to continue to take up water. Be sure to use a sharp knife or floral snips/scissors to prevent squishing the stems.  Also, remove any blooms or foliage that end up below the waterline in the vase.
