If you want your bouquet to stay beautiful and keep the fresh look for a long time, then you should follow some basic tips:
It is necessary to remove the packaging because. It needs only as a means of transporting the bouquet so that it remains as fresh as possible. When removing it you need to save the node, so as not to spoil the composition.
During transportation, the bouquet is without food for at least an hour or two. During this time, the capillaries of flowers dry up. In order for the bouquet to receive nutrition, you need to cut the stems and only then put them in water. Most flowers need to be cut at an angle, and tree stems can be cut straight.
Remove the extra leaves so that all the nutrition goes to the blossom. This is another way to preserve the freshness and original appearance of the bouquet.
- Temperature and additives
It is better to water the flowers with cold, settled tap water. Somebody adds sugar or peroxide the water. Don't add it under any circumstances. Sugar will speed up the fermentation process. It is preferable to add activated carbon as it is a natural element that purifies the water as a filter. In addition, there are special additives for preserving the bouquet.
The level of water depends on what flowers you have in your bouquet. For example, in a vase with flowers with a soft stem, you need to pour two-thirds of water, since such stems begin to rot faster if they are completely submerged in water.
And flowers like roses like a lot of water. If they were long without water and wilted, you can put the entire bouquet for three to four hours in cold water up to the neck (three centimeters from the bud). Then you need to trim the stem by two centimeters and make several incisions along the stem.
- Where should I put the bouquet?
In winter, you cannot put a bouquet near the batteries, because dry air and heat are harmful to the flowers. They can't stand drafts either: it is the reason for the flower to begin to wither because they dry its stems and leaves. And also you cannot put the vase at the air conditioner under the direct flow of air. It is desirable to put in a place where the sun shines two or three hours a day.
