Oct5th2014

There is nothing quite like a beautiful bouquet of flowers. When you turn to Arizona Rose & Flower Company, you can rest assured that our Mesa, Arizona florists will provide you with the freshest, most beautiful flowers you will find. However, no matter how fresh the flowers are, if you don't take care of them properly, they won't last. Learn how to make your cut flowers last longer with the following list of tips:

  • Add sugar- Sugar can help to feed the flower blossoms and make them last a lot longer. You can add sugar in the form of clear soda, or you can also dissolve a few tablespoons of sugar in warm water.
  • Kill the bacteria- Bacteria is your fresh cut flowers' number one enemy! You can counteract the bacteria by adding a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, a few drops of vodka, a few drops of bleach, or even just a copper penny.
  • Utilize your hairspray- Just as your hairspray can hold your hairstyle into place, it can also help your flowers to look great for longer. All you have to do is stand about a foot away, and give your flowers a quick spritz of hairspray. Make sure that you cover the undersides of all of the petals and leaves.

Now that you know how to make your favorite fresh cut flowers in Mesa last longer, it is time to order the perfect bouquet for your home or office. Visit our site today to find the best fall flowers for you.
