This week our expert florists, Anna and Tracy, are sharing their top tips to make your British cut flowers last longer!
Tip 1: You wouldn't drink from a dirty glass so why should your flowers? Make sure that your vase is squeaky clean and your cut flowers will last so much longer!
Tip 2: Flowers are needy! Trimming their stems and giving them fresh water as often as possible will help them to last much longer!
Tip 3: Keep your cut flowers away from your fruit bowl! As fruit ripens it produces a gas called ethylene, which will cause cut flowers to age quicker.
Tip 4: Revive your hydrangeas by placing them head first in fresh cold water for a few hours. You will give them a new lease of life!
Tip 5: Want to make your cut flower's last even longer? Why not try drying them! Hang them upside down in a warm place (e.g. over an AGA) and keep their beauty forever!
We are thrilled to announce that our expert florist, Anna Slade, was awarded a Silver medal at this year’s RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
We love reducing, reusing and recycling!
