How To Care for Your Valentine’s Bouquet

A man hands a woman a pink bouquet on Valentine's DayYou just celebrated Valentine’s Day with a person who is very important to you. This person gifted you a beautiful bouquet of flowers that you genuinely appreciate.

But you’ve never been gifted flowers before, and you’re not quite sure what to do with them. Still, you want them to last as long as possible. Well, it’s not as simple as throwing them in a vase with some water. Here’s how to care for your Valentine’s Bouquet:

Trim the Stems

Before you place the flowers in a vase, be sure to cut the bottom of the stems at a 45-degree angle, using shears if at all possible. This will allow the flowers to hydrate better, extending their life. Additionally, this can help remove harmful bacteria, which would make hydration more difficult.

Use Clean Water and Flower Food

Clean water is best for keeping your flowers in tip top shape. It’s best to change out the water daily to make sure it stays as clean as possible. Remove any leaves or foliage that fall into the water over the course of the day. If you’re looking to lengthen the life of your bouquet, you can also try flower food, which you can find in the home and gardening section of many stores or even at a florist’s shop.

Keep it in Indirect Sunlight

Darkness isn’t great for the continued health of flowers, but neither is too much sunlight. Keeping your flowers in indirect sunlight – perhaps near a window – can do wonders for the health of your flowers. And if you’re trying to get a flower to bloom quickly, putting it in warmer water in that indirect sunlight can help accomplish that goal.
