Once your flowers make it home, you will want to make sure you can enjoy and appreciate your flowers as long as possible. Here are a few tips and suggestions to make the most of your time with your flowers.

Clean vase & water

Use a clean vase filled with fresh water and make sure to change the water every few days. Fresh garden flowers like to drink... Especially in a warm house. While many florists recommend cutting the stems of your flowers by a couple inches when changing the vase water, I would recommend passing on this step with our bouquets and arrangements as we regularly use fragile flowers that require to have their stems seared or boiled to stay fresh longer or avoid having them affect other flowers with their sap. By cutting the stems, you risk shortening the life of those flowers we carefully prepared for your enjoyment. 

Keep it cool

Flowers like cool temperatures, and while many like to grow in full sun, they also remain beautiful longer in a shady area once they have been cut. Finding a place with indirect sun or shade in your house will keep your flowers' prime condition longer.

Observe & edit

Fresh local cut flowers tend to move and transform in front of your very eyes. Some blooms will dance to follow the light or close their petals at night. Others will get taller than their fellow companions. The best way to appreciate your flowers is to observe their grace evolve over the time you share your space with them. Just like us, they mature and every stage of their life brings a certain grace to be fully appreciated. As flowers get older, you can start removing the stems that are no longer adding grace. This will help prevent the rest of the blooms to age prematurely.

I hope these few tips are helpful!
