Probably the most frequent question that we get is how to maintain flowers and how to properly preserve them after they have been delivered. Because we get asked this question very frequently, we decided to make an article about it where our experts will give you some tips on how to maintain your flowers and preserve them. In order to preserve your flowers after few days from falling apart, you must follow carefully these methods for preserving otherwise you will fail and the flowers will be ruined.
Keep in mind that not every flower can be easily preserved and maintained through a long period of time. For example, roses are a very common flower that is purchased and they are one of the easiest to preserve and maintain. However, another common flower the Carnation is usually extremely hard to maintain and preserve for a longer time. Therefore, don’t feed bad if you follow these steps and you still can’t preserve them, sometimes there is nothing to be done.
Maintaining a freshness of a flower is extremely hard and you cannot maintain them for a long period of time. The time a flower will be fresh is usually depending on the type of the flower but it is usually between 2 and 5 days if you do it the right way. The first thing that you have to do when you get the flowers is to hydrate and water them. The easiest way is to put them into a vase with water. You have to be careful not to put too much water because that can be bad for them. Put just enough so the water will cover up to 2 inches.
There are just two more things that you can do in order to make their life longer first thing is to change the water every 12 hours to keep the water fresh and cold. That is important because the water in vases can warm up after some time and the last thing you can do is to provide them with sunlight. Other than that, you cannot do anything else to help and maintain them. If you want to preserve the flower for some reason, then follow the steps bellow.
Preserving with Drying Method
Our team of experts has all agreed that the best way to preserve a flower for a long period of time is to completely dry it out. That way the flower will keep its shape, but loose some of its colors. Unfortunately, there is no way that allows you to completely preserve it the way it originally was for the first few days. This has been proven to have the best long lasting results out of all other methods.
