Cut Flowers 101 – How to Keep Flowers Healthy and Fresh

Make your fresh flowers last longer and look good.

Dennis Thompson, owner of White House Flowers gives Monica some tips on how to keep cut flowers healthy and fresh.

Fresh cut orchids and roses last the longest
In warm desert temperatures bacteria tends to grow in the water and it should be changed every few days. Arrangements should be fed when water is changed
Use warm water in the container because it helps flowers drink
Cut stems with a sharp knife for a clean cut. Scissors pinch the stem and flowers can’t drink the water
