Valentines Flowers / January 15, 2019 / Eve Callahan
Make sure this cut is at an angle as this helps the flowers access the water better than if the stems were standing on the bottom of the vase. When cutting the stems never break them off with your hands or flatten them as this will also shorten the flower life. Once this is done all you have to do is tend to your flowers as you would your garden or any living thing for that matter! Regularly top up the vase with clean water. You should make sure the leaves are never covered with water as they will only contaminate the water. The leaves will rot and breed bacteria thus decreasing the longevity of the cut flowers. You should also keep your flowers away from fruit. You cant smell it but fruit gives off ethylene gas which affects the quality of the flowers life.
If youre one of the lucky people who received a bunch of beautiful flowers from your loved one you may want to know how your gift can keep on giving. At Petals weve had a number of florists over the years help customers and our own staff with keeping their flowers alive and fresh. There are number of things our florists have taught us that you can do to ensure your Valentines efforts last longer. First of all no matter how they were delivered either by hand by the florists or by a courier make sure you put your flowers into a clean vase with the wrapping still on and let them drink up the clean water. Next make sure you use cut flower food. The flowers will last longer if you use cut flower food but make sure you the read directions and use the correct amount.
When it comes to that special person in your life there are several things that you will have to consider. To deliver the best Valentines flowers for him it is all about being able to communicate the right massage. On this day the theme message will be love. Keep the flowers personal but with an edge to spark some curiosity. For example if he loves lilies and daisies do not forget to add that all important red rose which is able to create the love mood. It is pretty exciting and thoughtful to send him good flowers. For women who wait for the man to always do the flower job of sending their favorites to their work places it is a high time to also do something special and different. Flowers are really a good way to show and express love. Valentine flowers for him should not just be bold but they should have that soft side.
