3 Tips for Cutting & Displaying Fresh Summer Flowers, Lakeville, Connecticut

Many enjoy making floral arrangements from beautiful, fresh flowers during the summer. If you’re looking to create a stunning arrangement for your home, there are a few things you can do to keep your flowers healthy and alive for as long as possible. To find out more about how to cut and display your flowers, check out the information below from Roaring Oaks Florist in Lakeville, Connecticut.

How to Keep Your Fresh Flowers Looking Beautiful

1. Know When to Cut

To begin, you need to cut the flowers. The best time to do this is in the morning before the sun has a chance to dry your flowers out. By cutting them when it is cooler outside, you can help preserve their shape and prevent them from wilting. This is also ideal if you have outside flowers because they have morning dew hydrating them and providing them with key nutrients.

2. Use the Right Toolsfresh flowers

To cut fresh flowers, you need to use the right tools such as a pair of shears or clippers. This allows you to get a clean cut without imposing too much damage on the stalk of the flower. Cut at an angle and place the flower in water right after cutting to keep them fresh longer.

3. Water Temperature Matters

The temperature of the water matters more than you realize. Almost all fresh flowers benefit from lukewarm water. One exception, however, is tulips and other bulb flowers, as they require colder temperatures to thrive. When changing the water, always replace it with the right temperature to keep the nutrients flowing to the flowers.

Fresh flowers can add beauty and sweet aromas to your home.
