Tips: How to Keep Cut Flowers Fresh:

1. Choose the right kind of container. Always provide flowers with a clean vase free from any residue or leftover detergent. Lighter, more fragile cut flowers belong in a taller vase. Cut heavy blooms short, and place them in a low vase where they'll have extra room to spread out.

2. Cut two inches off the flower stems before placing them in water. Garden shears will give you the cleanest cut, but regular scissors will also do the trick. Cut stems at a 45-degree angle to increase the surface area and allow for greater water flow. Some flowers, like roses, tend to get air bubbles stuck in their stems, blocking water flow; to prevent this issue, cut the flower stems underwater.

3. Make sure the water is at the right temperature. Most flowers keep best in room-temperature water. Bulb flowers keep best in cool water or even cold water. Whether youโ€™re using either cold or lukewarm water, fill your vase so itโ€™s three-quarters full and keep topping it off as the flowers absorb more liquid.

4. Provide acidic water. Cut flowers do best in slightly acidic water, ideally with a pH level between 3.5 and 5.0.

5. Prune any leaves below the waterline. Any leaves submerged underwater can rot and cause bacterial growth, so it's important to regularly check your flowers and remove any underwater leaves.

6. Maintain your flowers consistently. Replace dirty vase water with fresh water and clean your vase every single day. Dirty water can lead to bacterial growth that will quickly bring on wilting. Re-cut your flower stems every two to three days to help them absorb water.

7. Keep cut flowers out of harsh environments. Refrain from placing your fresh flowers in direct sunlight, near hot appliances, or near gusts of air from fans, air conditioning, or open windows. Some flowers, like tulips, are particularly sensitive to heat. You should also keep cut flowers away from fresh fruit, as it emits traces of ethylene gas that can speed up a flower's wilting process.
