How to make your flower arrangement last longer

If you recently received a flower delivery Newport Beach CA, and want to keep it looking fresh for as long as possible, these tips can help! Sadly, real flower arrangements do not last forever but following these tips will help your arrangement thrive and stay alive for as long it can. 

Flower care

If you have received a bouquet of flowers and they are not yet in a vase, you may want to take a few extra steps when transferring them. First, you should cut the stems of your flowers at an angle. This can also be done weekly to ensure your flowers are efficiently receiving the right amount of nutrients. Another way of caring for your flowers is to trim off any leaves that are below the water line. If you notice any dying flowers in your arrangement you should also remove them right when noticed. Doing so will help preserve the flowers that are still intact!

Avoid direct sunlight

Avoid putting your flower arrangements in a place where they will get direct sunlight. This can be very damaging and cause many problems. Cooler temperatures away from direct airflow are best for your arrangement. Indirect sunlight is also perfect for the flowers in your arrangement. Placing your arrangement in the fridge overnight can also be very beneficial. 

Add to the water

Adding certain ingredients to the water that your arrangement is in can actually cause your flowers to last longer! Some examples of additives include apple cider vinegar, soda, vodka and aspirin. There are certain amounts that would work best for your arrangement so do your research first. You should also be changing the water in your vase every few days!
