How to Make Your Beautiful Bouquet of Flowers Last Longer, Brooklyn, New York

Receiving a gorgeous bouquet of flowers is always a special event. Whether someone special sent you a dozen roses at work or you bought some to brighten up your home, a bouquet of flowers add a bit of magic to your day.

One of the things that makes flowers so special is the fact that they don’t last forever — you have to enjoy them in the moment. Luckily, though, the florists at Flowerworks in Brooklyn, NY, have some expert advice to help you keep that bouquet of flowers fresh and perky so you can enjoy them for as long as possible.

Here’s what you need to know about caring for your fresh-cut flowers:

  • Be Careful About Placement: Keep your vase out of direct sunlight so your flowers don’t wilt in the heat of the day. It’s also a good idea to make sure you keep your bouquet of flowers out of drafts and away from fresh fruit — bananas and apples give off ethylene gas that can make your flowers decay faster.
  • Keep Flowers Well Watered: Before placing flowers in a vase, be sure to remove all leaves that may be below the water line, which will help keep your water clean. Check water daily, and refresh when it gets cloudy.
  • Remove Dead Flowers & Leaves Regularly: In mixed bouquets, some flowers will decay sooner than others. Carefully remove dead stems to keep decay from spreading to your good flowers. If you decide to place your remaining flowers into a new vase, re-cut the stems under running water to rejuvenate them.

No matter what the occasion, Flowerworks of Brooklyn, NY, will make it special with the perfect flowers.
