Essentials for your flowersKeep them in a cool spot (65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit; 18 to 22 degrees Celsius), away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, direct drafts from a ceiling fan, and the tops of televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, causing flowers to dehydrate.)
When your flowers arrive in wet foamKeep the floral foam soaked in water containing floral food provided by your florist. Be sure to follow the directions on the package.
When your flowers are arranged in waterKeep the vase filled with water containing floral food provided by your florist. Be sure to follow the directions on the package. If the solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely. If possible, recut the stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife. Remove leaves that will be below the waterline. Leaves in water will promote bacterial growth that can harm the flowers.
When your flowers have woody stems and branches (such as Quince, Forsythia, or Lilac)Cut the stem with sharp pruning shears. Place in warm water containing fresh floral food to promote flower opening.
