Did you know, when picking flowers and foliage’s from the garden there are some great little tricks that you can do to make them last longer.
Both flowers and foliage require water to keep them alive, therefore if you are picking from the garden it is best to walk around with a bucket of luke warm water; as soon as you pick your product strip any leaves off that will go below the water line, then place your flowers and foliage directly into the bucket of luke warm water.
Did you know that the best time to pick flowers and foliage’s is early in the morning or late in the evening, when it is cooler, this reduces the dehydration of the flowers and foliage and helps them hydrate sooner.
Did you know many flowers and foliage’s also drink through their heads, if you are picking violets from a garden once you have bundled them up with a little tie, you can spray their heads with a fine mist of fresh water, or dunk them upside down for a few minutes before placing their cut stems in water. Hydrangeas are the same, sometimes their heads can become a little soft, turn the hydrangea upside down in a bucket of water for about 10 minutes, when you turn them back up the right way, recut the stem on a 45 degree angle and place them back in water.
