Making Your Flowers Last

**Note about daffodils: Daffodil sap is toxic to other flowers. When trimming your daffodil stems, allow them to sit in a separate container of water for 3 hours. This allows the stems to cauterize and the sap to stop flowing. After 3 hours dump the sappy water and place them back in with your other flowers. Do this every time you trim them. ​

  1. Change the water: If you purchase an arrangement your flowers are already in pre-treated water. 2 days after purchasing your flowers mix the Crystal flower food packet that came with your flowers according to packet instructions, and replace the water. Change the water every other day after that.

  2. Trim the flowers: When you change the water, trim 1/2” off the stems.

  3. Keep out of direct sunlight.

  4. Keep your arrangement at room temperature and away from drafts.

  5. Keep away from fruit. As fruit ripens it releases gasses that cause flowers to wilt prematurely.

  1. Avoid water and humidity.

  2. Keep out of direct sunlight and away from little people (trust me, I know from experience), and pets.

  3. Keep away from drafts.

  4. To store: Pack away in a cardboard box and store at room temperature. Moths LOVE dried flowers, so place a piece of cedar inside the box to keep them away.
