Product Care of Fresh Flowers

Receiving fresh roses gives you a delightful and comforting sensation that you wish to cherish for an extended period. The more enduring your roses remain fresh, the more you'll be reminded of the love and appreciation directed towards you.

At LéSiL, we understand the importance of keeping your blooms vibrant and long-lasting. In this comprehensive guide, we'll share our top secrets to help you extend the life of your fresh roses and make your floral arrangements truly unforgettable.

1. Selecting the Freshest Blooms
When choosing flowers, look for buds that are just starting to open. This ensures a longer vase life.Check for firm stems and vibrant, unblemished petals. Avoid roses with wilting or yellowing parts.

2. Proper Conditioning
Trim the stems at a 45-degree angle with sharp scissors or floral shears. This increases water absorption.
Remove any leaves that will be submerged in water to prevent bacterial growth.

3. Ideal Water Temperature
Use lukewarm water for most flowers, as it is easily absorbed. However, some flowers, like tulips, prefer cold water. Change the water every 2-3 days to keep it clean and free of bacteria.

4. Choosing the Right Vase
Select a clean vase that suits the height of your roses. A tall vase can support long-stemmed roses, while a short vase is perfect for compact arrangements. Make sure the vase is free from any residues or bacteria.

5. Feeding Your Flowers
Add flower food to the water to provide essential nutrients. Follow the instructions on the packet for the correct dosage. If you don't have commercial flower food, you can create a DIY solution with sugar, lemon juice, and a few drops of bleach.

6. Proper Placement
Keep your roses away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat sources. This helps prevent premature wilting. Avoid placing roses near fruits, as they release ethylene gas, which accelerates the aging of flowers.

7. Regular Pruning
Remove spent blooms and foliage to encourage the development of new buds. Re-cut stems every few days to maintain water uptake.

8. Humidity Control
Maintain a moderate level of humidity in the room, as overly dry air can cause roses to wilt faster. Mist the petals lightly with water to refresh them, especially during hot or dry weather.

By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your fresh roses stay radiant and enchanting for an extended period.
