Let the beauty last

Tips for upkeep of floral arrangements
Let the beauty last

One of the major factors for any bouquet or flower to last longer is how it has been conditioned. Each flower has a different science to it so when your flowers first arrive at your door step, all they need is a bit of pruning and fresh water to perk up! 

Anuja Joshi, marketing director and creative face of Interflora India lists the reasons on keeping flowers fresh—

  • Remove the flowers from the box and wrap the bouquet. Fill a vase 2/3rd with room-temperature water.
  • Empty the entire sachet of Interflora flower food that’s provided and stir to mix. Trim one to two inches of the stems at an angle using scissors or a sharp knife. Place the bouquet into a vase. Tweak the arrangement as needed and watch your flowers perk up before your eyes! 
  • Since flowers continue to drink water after they’ve been cut, it’s important to keep fresh flowers in water always. Exposing the stem to air, even briefly, can cause the water-absorbing cells to shrivel.—IANS
