Floral Care and Handling
Hi! I’m Wendy the Flower Child and am here to help you out with all of your floral questions. Everyone is always asking me how they can make their flowers last as long as possible. Here, I’ve put together a few tips for anyone who wants to get the most out of their flowers:
•Keep cut flowers cool until you can get them into water.
•Remove any leaves that will be under water in the vase.
•With stem under water, cut about an inch off the stem with a sharp knife or clippers - cut at an angle.
•Fill vase with fresh, room temperature water and arrange flowers in vase.
•Again make sure to remove any leaves that are under water.
•Display floral arrangement in a cool area - keep out of direct sunlight.
•Keep the water fresh. Change the water daily.
•Re-cut the stems every 2 or 3 days.

There are certain flowers and plants that really evoke a specific season or time of year. For winter, Poinsettias sing candy canes and Happy Holidays. Poinsettias are blooming plants that start with deep green leaves. The top leaves of the Poinsettia are called bracts and these are the leaves that turn red, orange, pale green, cream, pink, white or even marbled. So, it is an interesting notion that what we would think are vivid colored petals of Poinsettias are actually special leaves.
