3 Things To Look For When Buying Fresh Flower Bouquets

One of the most effective ways to express how you feel to your family, friends or loved ones is by sending a bouquet of flowers. Giving them a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers, no matter what the occasion is, will show them that they have a particular place in your heart.
It is important to know how to choose fresh flowers to guarantee that the flowers will last longer, making sure you get your money’s worth. At Whispers + Honey, we offer same-day flower delivery & customized flower arrangements in Las Vegas & Henderson, NV

How To Tell If A Flower Is Fresh:

1. The Petals
The colors of the petals are the quickest way to tell whether a flower is fresh or not. Fresh flowers have tight buds and the petals should have bright, vibrant colors.

Any dryness, wilting or discoloration, such as brown edges and dullness in color indicates that they have passed their peak freshness.

2. The Stem
A fresh and healthy bouquet of flowers has a green, robust stem.

Avoid weak, bendy stems since they are a sign that the blooms are likely to wilt much quicker. The presence of yellow or brown discoloration at the ends of the stems shows that the blooms are no longer fresh.

3. The leaves
To ensure that the leaves are fresh, they should be firm and have a rich, healthy green color.

Any speckled leaves should be avoided since they indicate the presence of bacteria in the bouquet. Avoid leaves with holes, as this shows that the leaf was contaminated by insects prior to the flower arrangement.

Tips On How To Keep Flowers Fresh Even After Some Time

We all know we can’t keep a bouquet fresh forever. But knowing how to take care of the flowers will greatly impact the length of time your flowers will last looking healthy and beautiful. To ensure that your bouquet will still look fresh even after quite some time, check out these useful tips below:

1. Clean and cut the stem
Clean water is essential to fresh flowers.

In order to avoid slimy and murky water, any dirt from the stem should be washed away. Any wilted leaves or leaves that have grown too low should be trimmed off.

2. Avoid Direct Sunlight
Direct sunlight is also a no-go! Fresh flowers should be kept cool and away from direct sunshine to prevent them from drying out too quickly.

Pro tip: You can keep your flowers in the refrigerator overnight and then display them when you’re ready!

3. Use preservatives
Natural preservatives are a flower’s best friend.

You might have some useful things lying around the house that can actually help your flowers last longer. The only thing standing between you and longer fresh flowers could be a teaspoon of sugar or two tablespoons of lemon juice.
