U-Pick Flowers 101: Tips for making cut flowers last
RISE AND SHINE. Cut flowers in the morning, if possible. The stems are most hydrated then, which means less wilting and longer-lasting blooms. A flower cut in the middle of the day won’t last as long.
STRIP THE STEMS. Remove leaves from the bottom half of the stem so there is no foliage in the water, which can cause rot and clog the stems.
STAY OUT, OF THE KITCHEN. Once you have cut flowers in your house, you should not display them near ripening fruit. The ethylene gas from apples and bananas will make flowers expire faster.
