Keeping your Christmas Flowers Fresh

Silver Lining

Flowers are a lovely gift to receive for Christmas. When you do get such a wonderful gift, you want to take the extra measures to keep your Christmas flowers fresh for as long as possible. To keep your Christmas flowers fresh for an extended period of time, follow these easy steps:

Check your Christmas flowers daily to ensure it has proper water. Your Christmas flower vase, container, or liner should always have fresh room temperature water. Even floral arrangements with Styrofoam liners should have adequate water to keep your Christmas flowers as fresh as possible. When ever you completely change the water in your Christmas flower arrangements, makes sure to clean the container as well. Use the fresh flower food the florist provides on delivery with all flowers. Use as directed. Improper use can actually cause more damage and premature aging of your flowers.

Every few days trim the stems of your Christmas flowers back to give them a better drink way to intake fresh water. Cutting the steam at an angle also gives the flowers the best chance of taking up fresh water. Remove any spent or damaged blooms or foliage that falls below the waterline in the vase.

If you are concerned of disturbing the Christmas flower arrangement order, simply tie a piece of twine around the stems just above the vase line. While holding your Christmas flowers from twine tied location gently turn over, cut stems with sharp scissors, and return to vase, arrangement unharmed.

Be sure no debris is floating in the water (such as leaves and stem parts) as this could promote the growth of bacteria, which can shorten a flower’s life. Most flowers prefer temperatures between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 22 degrees Celsius) and are best displayed away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions or radiators, which give off heat and can cause flowers to dehydrate.

Following these few simple steps will help extend the life of your Christmas flowers while keeping them fresh.
