With just a few simple tips, you can keep your live Christmas greenery, green and fresh right through the New Year!
When you order your Christmas Greenery online through Brant Florist you can be assured you get the freshest, greenest, live greenery and that is the biggest of the tips I have for you. Starting with fresh live greenery is important in their longevity.
When your beautiful Christmas greenery is delivered, avoid placing it in locations here it is exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time or heat. This will help extend it’s life by reducing drying factors of the sun and heat.
Spray indoor wreaths, garland, swags, and other greenery with a hand held mister once on a weekly basis. If you have no other option then to place your Christmas greenery in direct sunlight, mist it at least twice a week. It is best to water/mist your greenery with spring or well water. Chlorinated water can actually dry the greenery out somewhat. When your Christmas flower arrangements contain Christmas greenery, pay close attention to water level. Christmas greens are greedy and will suck up all the water fast; make sure the flowers are getting their fair share!
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.

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.
