How to Keep Flowers Fresh Longer in a Vase


v1We all wish flowers would last forever, but unfortunately once we cut them and remove them from their natural environment, they begin to die. Even in nature, flowers eventually die and then are replaced with new blooms.

However, if you have flowers in a vase, there are some ways that you can keep them fresh longer so you can enjoy them for the longest time possible. These ideas may seem weird but they have been proven to work alongside regularly re-trimming the stems and adding fresh water:v2

  • Add ¼ cup of soda to flower water. There is sugar in the soda that helps the blooms last longer. Typically, it is best to use a clear soda. It’s just more attractive than pouring dark soda in the water as the water will then look dirty.
  • Spray your flower arrangement with hairspray on the underside of the petals and leaves. Just like hair, it keeps everything lifted and in place for a longer time.
  • Pour in two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and two tablespoons of sugar into the vase water to keep flowers fresh.
  • Get those flowers a little tipsy by adding a few drops of vodka or another clear spirit to the water along with one teaspoon of sugar. The flowers will be sure to be the life of the party.v4
  • Give the flowers a bit of crushed aspirin. Not only will the flowers get rid of their hangover, they will stay energized and fresh for longer.
  • While it sounds crazy, add ¼ teaspoon of bleach per quart of water as this helps to stop the growth of bacteria.
  • Throw a copper penny into your vase water as this also stops the growth of bacteria.

Also make sure you keep the flowers out of the direct sunlight and away from vents that blow hot or cold air on them.v2

You will also want to opt for a florist who can provide the freshest flowers available who hand arranges them and hand delivers them to ensure they have a fighting chance to stay as fresh as long as possible. We do not use any boxes to deliver our flowers because this is not an ideal way to help flowers last not to mention it does not deliver the best possible presentation to recipients.

This is when you can do your part by adding flowers to your garden or creating a dish or basket garden to enjoy in and around your home as well as your office.
