  • Re-cut stems. It’s important to keep up on the stems of your blooms. This is your flower’s main source to water so upkeep is crucial. Re-cutting your stems every few days is a great way to prolong your flower’s life. Cutting the stems about ¾” at an angle will optimize your flower’s water intake. Cutting stems isn’t the only step when sprucing up your flowers though, as removing any damaged or spent blooms are also necessary.
  • Flower food and fresh water. When you got your first puppy, your parents may have made you promise to keep up with their food and water every day. Fresh water and feeding them every day is a crucial part to owning a pet. Although your flowers aren’t completely equivalent to having a furry friend running around your home, they still need fresh water and food. Before you place your flowers into a vase, it’s important to wash it. Next, fill your vase with room temperature water and the perfect mix of flower food. Be sure to check that your vase is not home to any floating debris, such as leaves or stems, as this will encourage bacteria growth which can drastically cut down on your flower’s life.

Your partner looked hard for the perfect blooms to present to you on Valentine’s Day. Keeping them healthy and alive is a lovely way to show that you care and appreciate such a beautiful gift.
