How to Care for Flowers

Published on: Aug 26th, 2023

Flowers are a beautiful and fragrant way to brighten up your home or office. But keeping them looking their best takes a little care and attention. Here are some tips on how to care for flowers:

  1. Choose the right flowers for your needs. Not all flowers are created equal. Some flowers are perishable and will only last a few days, while others are more durable and can last for weeks. Consider the occasion for which you are buying flowers, as well as the amount of time you have to care for them.


  2. Trim the stems. When you first receive your flowers, trim the stems at a 45-degree angle. This will help the flowers absorb water more easily.

  3. Change the water daily. Flowers need fresh water to stay hydrated. Change the water in your vase daily and remove any dead or wilting flowers.

  4. Keep the flowers in a cool, dark place. Avoid placing flowers in direct sunlight or near heat sources. This will help them last longer.

  5. Feed the flowers. You can use commercial flower food or make your own by adding a teaspoon of sugar to a quart of water. Feed your flowers every few days.

  6. Avoid overwatering. It is better to underwater flowers than to overwater them. Too much water can cause the roots to rot.

  7. Be patient. Flowers take time to bloom. Don't expect them to look their best right away.
