Caring for Holiday Greenery

Golden Greetings Fresh Door Swag
One of the grandest things of the holiday season is the smell of Christmas Greens. That deep fragrant earthy evergreen scent of pine finishes off the spirit of the season. Evergreen greenery bring with them memories of yesterday and tradition. Because of this, you want to make that memory last for as long as possible.

From Christmas wreaths to Christmas swags, to evergreen garland, can stay with you throughout the holiday season and beyond with proper care.

To start with you want to make sure your greenery is as fresh as possible. That is where Brant Florist can step in and cover that for you. Brant Florist only deals with reputable florist dealers that only deliver the freshest possible products so you can rest assured that any greenery you order from Brant Florist will be delivered fresh.

Many Christmas Greeneries are created using quality Balsam firs. Florists judge them on their needle characteristics. The best firs display medium length needles that grow tightly together all around the stem and branches. The needles should be perfectly straight and present in a deep dark green coloring.

When hanging your greenery in a wintery wonderland outside, your wreath, swags, garland etc. will last easily far past the holiday season. The cool temperatures combined with the moist atmosphere provide the perfect conditions to preserve your firs freshness, color, and aroma. However, when decorating the interior of your home with holiday greenery, due to the warmer conditions and dryer air, you can expect your holiday greenery to last about a month. There are things you can do to keep your wreath, swags, and garland fresher longer, moisture being a key factor. Spritzing your Christmas Greenery daily with fresh water will go a long way in keeping its beauty and aroma. If your home is extremely dry, spritz your greenery more often. Also, when displaying your greenery indoors, always take great measures to place/hang then away from any direct heat sources.

If you receive your Christmas Greenery before you are able to display it, in the midterm, store them in the great wintery outdoors to ensure its longlivity before hanging.
