Caring for Valentine’s Day Flowers

If you are gifting or receiving Valentines flower this year, follow these tips to keep them fresh.

  1. Keep the vase filled or floral foam soaked with warm water. Add fresh, warm water daily. If possible, recut stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife.
  1. Keep flowers in a cool spot (65 to 72°F), away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or near radiators.
  1. If a rose starts to wilt, remove it from the arrangement, and recut the stem under water. Submerge the entire rose in warm water. The rose should revive in one to two hours.
