Fresh Flowers For Longer

Whether you’re one to buy yourself s once in a while, or you have received a bouquet from someone else, chances are you hope to make the arrangement last as long as possible. With some s, this is a straightforward endeavor, while with others, there are a few tricks that will ensure success. The floral experts at Al’s Florist & Gifts have some great tips to help you maintain a gorgeous bouquet of s every time.

With a mixed bouquet like our delicate Watercolor Flowers, caring for certain blooms like these yellow calla lilies and peach roses is fairly straightforward: cut stems underwater and change water every few days. Hydrangea, however, like the lime green variety found here, can be a little trickier. To maintain hydrangeas’ bright colors and full blooms, dip the ends of the freshly cut stems in alum powder (found in the spice aisle of most grocery stores) before arranging in water as usual. Flowers will stay as fresh as the day they arrived for weeks.

For more tips on caring for your s, talk to the floral professionals at Al’s Florist & Gifts. We want you to enjoy your s as long as possible and will gladly share our wisdom with you.
