Don’t Mix Fruit And Flowers Tip

One of the first things we should share with you that we found to be hugely interesting is from Brit and Co. You should not mix your flowers with fruit.

Apparently, certain fruits like kiwis, apples, bananas emit ethylene which rots nearby plants and fruits.

Given that we tend to place fresh flowers in the kitchen, chances are you have a fruit bowl in close proximity. We love this helpful tip!

How To Keep Fresh Flowers Alive Longer Tips

Here are some general tips that you can apply to any type of flower to ensure their longevity.

  • Cut the stems properly when you get home. This gives your flowers as many nutrients as possible. It will also help get rid of any moldy parts that may have started forming at the base of the flower. Cut them at an angle, 1-2 inches from the bottom of the stem, using sharp kitchen scissors or shears.
  • Change your water regularly. And add more plant food or the magic ingredient shown in the video.
  • Be sure the water in the vase does not go over the leafy parts of the stem. Keep the leaves above water.
  • Pay attention to which flowers go well together. Did you know there is a chemical inside daffodils that can destroy other flowers? Before you put a bouquet together, be sure the flowers are friendly.

Now that you know how to keep that bouquet looking amazing for days did you know that another tip used by the Pro’s according to Brit and Co is using Hairspray?

If you spray on the underside of the petals, you can prevent wilting. This could work well for weddings in particular.
