1. Always Trim Flowers At An Angle.

Cut your stems to the required length. This allows for maximum water absorption and ensures the stems don’t block water from absorbing. After trimming the stems, immediately place them in water. Some stems can quickly form a scab over fresh cuts when they are exposed to air. This makes it difficult to absorb water. Although some stems do not form this, it is a good rule to simply immerse all flowers in the water right after cutting.

  1. Any debris that is below the water level should be removed.

Although you can often remove stems easily with your hands (keep reading to find my list of favorite tools), it’s possible to sometimes use scissors or flower pruners. Keep foliage out of the water, as it can cause bacteria growth, which in turn will make your flowers die quicker.

  1. Clean you’re Vase

You should wash the vase between fresh flowers if you reuse the same vase. Do not rinse the vase, but instead use soap and warm water. The bacteria that have been accumulated from the last arrangement may cause your flowers to die sooner than usual.

  1. Refreeze The Water Twice A Day.

This extra step can increase the lifespan of your blooms by extending their life span. By changing the water you can remove bacteria. It may be difficult to remove the stems from your vase, depending on how large your arrangement is. For this reason, add fresh water daily to your arrangement to replenish.

  1. Give Your Arrangement Food Flowers

You’ve probably seen those little packets that you receive when you buy flowers. They are worth the effort! They keep your flowers vibrant and healthy with their sugary sweet formula. Online ordering of flower food is also possible. This can be used for foraging, cutting, or foraging in your garden.

  1. Fresh Flowers, Local Flowers.

One of my favorite things about floral design is the way it brings a little of the outside into our homes. I believe the most beautiful flowers come from those closest to you. Nature has so much beauty for us to enjoy, whether it’s dahlias, beautiful peonies, and dried hydrangeas, in the summer and evergreen branches in the winter.

  1. Incorporate Unexpected Elements.

Use non-traditional botanical elements to add interest to your arrangements. There are many fun options, such as blueberry branches, Artichokes, and Pomegranates. You can arrange almost any plant that grows, even if it requires wire or floral stakes. You can be creative with your ingredients.

  1. Create Tape Grid or Use Chicken wire.

Sometimes it is difficult to keep your stems in place. A tape grid is a good idea for clear vases. You can also use a sphere made of chicken wire (for more design control) and a tape Grid on opaque vases. This will give your flower arrangements structure.
