How do I keep cut flowers fresh?

Maintain fresh water and a clean vase every day to fend off bacterial growth, which leads to wilting.
Cut your flower stems every two to three days at a 45-degree angle with a sharp instrument to help them efficiently absorb water.
Keep your flowers in a friendly environment, away from heat, gusts of wind, fresh fruit and direct sunlight.
Treat your flowers with commercial flower preservatives. These preservative mixtures help keep cut flowers fresh and healthy.

What can I add to fresh-cut flowers?
Cut flowers require three things to stay fresh at home: sugar, citric acid and an antibacterial agent. These ingredients provide nourishment, optimize the water’s pH level and fight bacterial growth. There are many home remedies online, but commercial flower preservatives are a great solution to maintain the freshness of your cut flowers. Their mixture offers everything your flowers need to live their best lives.
