When you receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers, you want them to last as long as possible. However, the summer months pose a particular challenge for flowers. The intense heat and dryness can have an adverse effect on our flowers. Thankfully, there are ways to protect our flowers and help them last during the summer.
Add extra water
Temperatures skyrocket during the summer. These higher temperatures mean that water evaporates much more quickly. As a result, you’ll need to add extra water to your vase to ensure that your flowers stay cool and hydrated.
And replace water more frequently
The heat causes water to evaporate, but it also spurns bacteria growth. This results in cloudy, dirty water that can harm the health of your flowers. A simple fix is to replace the water in your vase more frequently that you would in the cooler months.
Place flowers in a cool, shady spot
We often think that plants and flowers need plenty of sunshine. While this is the case for some plants, this is not the case for freshly cut flowers. Cut flowers will quickly deteriorate if they’re left in direct sunlight. As such, it’s best to place your flowers in a cool, shady area of your home.
Give them fresh air
Fresh air is essential to plants. Without it, they will quickly wilt. While you don’t have to take your flowers outside, you can open up your doors and windows to let fresh air into your home.
