How to Make Fresh Flowers Look Their Best

Want to keep your blooms lasting longer? Follow a few of these simple cut flower care ideas and you will keep your blooms vibrant and long lasting.


Keep the bacteria in the water low

Be sure to use a clean vase, fill it with room-temperature water mixed with a G.G Floral Life extender packet, which is included with your flowers. The Floral Life extender is basically sugar that helps keep the bacteria count in the water low.



Re-cut the stems

Re-cut the stems, every few days. Remove 3/4" from the bottom of the stem, cutting the stems on an angle is the best for the flowers to continue to take up water. Be sure to use a sharp knife or floral snips/scissors to prevent squishing the stems. Also, remove any blooms or foliage that end up below the waterline in the vase.


Tip: want to keep the flower arrangement looking like the pros, tie a piece of twine or wire around the top of the stems before you remove them to re-cut, this will keep all the blooms in their place.


Check your flowers daily

Last but not least - check your flowers daily, see if they need a top up on water. If you need to completely replace the water, make sure to clean the vase thoroughly, add room temperature water and new G.G Floral Life extender.
