  2. If your flowers came in plastic, remove this as soon as possible.

  3. Most flowers will last longer under cool conditions.

  4. Keep your vase filled with water! All flower and foliage stems should be submerged.

  5. If your flowers came in a basket or other containers with foam, add fresh water every day.

  6. Immediately remove dead or wilting leaves and stems from fresh flower arrangements.

  7. When the vase water gets cloudy it’s time to change it out. Or change every 2 days for optimum freshness!

Changing The Water In Your Flower Arrangement

  1. First remove any dead or dying flowers from the arrangement.

  2. Replace the water and mix in the flower preservative (if you have any), according to the instructions on the packet.

  3. For best results, cut stems at an angle about one to two inches from the bottom. This allows them to better absorb water.
