Receiving birthday flowers is one of life’s great joys. What better way for people to show you how they feel than sending you a beautiful bouquet of flowers to keep in your home? The only issue is that you have a finite amount of time with your flowers. If you want to keep your birthday flowers alive for a bit longer, here are a few tips to help you out.
First and foremost, you’ll want to trim the stems of your flowers at an angle. Not only does this help you trim them to a good length for the vase you’re using, but it also helps your flowers more effectively absorb water.
Make sure you’re trimming your flower stems every few days or so, too. This will keep them fresh for longer.
The next thing you’ll want to do is change your water every other day or so. Doing so will help keep oxygen in the water for your flowers. In addition, it will make sure your flowers have fresher water to keep them alive for longer. The last thing you want for your flowers is cloudy water.
