How To Keep Flowers Alive Longer

The reality is, not all flowers will live a long time.

Some flowers are old before you buy them -- and some need special care. Some just naturally bloom for a very short time.

Here is what to look for to acheive the best flower experience:

Choose Flower Varieties That Give The Best Value

how long do cut flowers last

Choose fresher flowers at the store

  • Avoid flowers that have been trimmed at the top. Cut branches can indicates they have already had to be pruned to make them look fresher
  • Be aware that “sale” price may mean a shorter flower life — no matter what you do — because they want to clear out old inventory
  • Look for green and vibrant stems – dark stems or yellow on leaves can be a sign of stress – also loose or yellowed pollen indicates flowers are already past their prime
  • Smell: most commerical flowers won’t have much or any smell. If you detect a musty or unpleasant odor, pass on that bouquet, it’s already older than you think
  • Delayed blooming: if flowers always seem to take a long time to open, they probably were treated with suspension chemicals too long (either slow moving inventory at the store or long transit times)
  • Be aware that some retailers will “mix” old and new flowers to try to maximize their inventory. Look carefully at a bouquet to make sure all the flowers Look fresh and consistent

Trim The Flowers

But before the flowers can take in nutrients, they have to be able to drink. 

You know how frustrating it feels to try to use a straw that has a hole in it. That’s how your flowers feel when their stems can’t take in nutrients. 

To allow your flowers to take a nice deep sip, trim the stems diagonally (for maximum surface area) so the stems have a clear path to take in the nutrients they need.

Keep The Water Fresh

Do you like fresh, clean water? So do your flowers. 

For optimal results, use filtered water in your vase. Flowers will live longer in filtered water. Why?

Municiple water can vary greatly in the amount of minerals or chemicals it contains. Those minerals can clog the stems or react negatively to the flowers and make it harder for flowers to live as long as they can.  

Filtered water will also stay clean longer (being less likely to breed bacteria). Filtered water should be changed every 3-4 days. Tap water should be changed every 2-3 days. 

Easy Maintenance

  • Clean the vase when you replace the treated water.
  • Re-trim the flower stems
