Making Cut Flowers Last Longer

To make cut flowers last for weeks instead of days, use 7-Up or Sprite instead of water. Cut the ends every other day or so and freshen the liquid. Roses last for weeks!

From a professional florist the sugar in the soft drink helps to feed the flower but it also encourages bacterial growth. Use a professional flower food that you can purchase from a real brick and mortar florist. It is inexpensive, but will really make the flowers last a lot longer. Cut the stems daily if you can ( depending upon the design...in water or foam) and keep the flowers as cool as possible and "overnight them" in a darker place. Of course no roses last for weeks, but starting out with fresh product from a real florist will make a huge difference!
