Our flowers are grown, harvested and handled to provide the longest vase life possible. Simply give stems a fresh cut at an angle with sharp scissors and remove any leaves that will be below the water line. Place in a clean vase of fresh cool water. A floral preservative can be added if desired and freshen the water every 1-2 days. Display your blooms away from heat and direct sunlight and away from ripening produce (like bananas). A clean vase is imperative for longevity!
