Caring for a bouquet of flowers

It is quite possible to keep a bouquet of flowers for a very long time. You just have to follow a few simple rules. After receiving your bouquet, cut the bottom of the stems (2 cm) to facilitate water absorption. Next, trim the bottom leaves. To avoid crushing the leaves, use a sharp knife and not scissors or secateurs. Then, take a vase with half the length of the stems and add fresh water at room temperature. Be careful not to undo the links structuring the bouquet.

Make sure that your bouquet of flowers does not experience too high temperature differences. Do not place it next to a heat source such as a radiator or a computer. Do not take it outside the house in winter. Leave your bouquet near a window so that it can blossom. It is not a question of putting it in direct contact with the sun's rays. Find a place for it that is sheltered from draughts and strong winds. Avoid placing your flowers next to a bowl of fruit that gives off ethylene gas. The latter is harmful to cut flowers.

The days following the delivery of bouquets , make sure that the water in the vase is always clean and fresh. Change it every two days. Don't forget to clean up the slime. Feed your bouquet with sachets of cut flower food when you change the water. If they are not returned on delivery, you can find them at a florist or in a garden center store. A few days after delivery, recut the rods. At the first signs of wilting, cut the stems again (2 cm).
