Keep Your Blooms Beautiful For Longer

Everyone loves to receive flowers, especially for a special occasion, but sometimes taking care of them and maintaining their freshness can be a challenge. The floral experts at Gordon Boswell have some tips on how to easily have an enduring arrangement.

A mixed bouquet like our Fiesta comes with unusual green orchids along with gorgeous peach roses and Peruvian lilies. Take care of these blooms by trimming stems while submerged in water, removing foliage low enough to create murky water, and changing vase water every other day. But what to do if the blooms still begin to wilt prematurely? Experts recommend taking flowers out of the vase and laying them in a warm water bath for 20-60 minutes, until revived. Return to fresh, lukewarm water and continue to enjoy. Remember to display your beautiful blooms in a cool, dry spot away from direct sunlight, heat, or drafts.

Following these tips can mean the difference between flowers that last for a few days and those that last for weeks. The floral designers at Gordon Boswell will always provide you with the highest quality flowers around. With a few extra steps, you can be sure they last and last.
