Tips for Longer Lasting Cut Flowers

Cut in early morning (best) or late evening

Choose blooms ready to open or that have just opened, not fully-open

Cut stem just above a node to encourage more blooms

Once indoors, re-cut stems underwater at an angle to encourage water uptake

Place immediately in tepid water with a floral preservative

Remove leaves from the bottom third of the stem to reduce decay

Change water frequently, re-cutting stems each time

Keep arrangement cool and out of direct sunlight

Experiment with colors and combinations
