How much joy a presented or collected bouquet of flowers can bring! Elastic buds or cheerful baskets enliven the interior, give an atmosphere of freshness and good mood. Of course, I really want to enjoy their bright colors and pleasant aromas for a longer time. The following tips will help to increase the longevity and decorative effect of the bouquet.
Of course, not all plants will be treated the same. But there are recommendations that are common to most.
It is better to buy or cut the flowers you like early in the morning and put them in the water as soon as possible. When choosing a composition, it is imperative to take into account the compatibility of species. Roses , lilies, daffodils, lilies of the valley, carnations will feel better in mono bouquets. Delicate wildflowers will get along with any neighbor.
It is good if the water is settled and cool. For some, like tulips, you can even add some ice cubes. The exception is mimosa. This beauty prefers a contrasting bath: the stems need boiling water, and the flowers should be sprinkled with cold water.
The part of the stem that will be in the water must be cleaned of leaves and thorns. Pour water into the vase to the top. But if the leaves are fleecy (as, for example, the gerbera), then the third part will be enough. The villi are an excellent habitat for bacteria, the less of them in the water, the better.
It is advisable to change the water in the vase daily. But if you add aspirin to it (a quarter of a tablet is enough), then you can do it every other day. When changing water, the stems of plants will be nice to rinse under the tap, and renew the cut of the stem. It is better to do this under water, so that air bubbles do not "air" the tubule of the stem. To increase the absorbent surface, it is better to cut at an oblique angle.
Some flowers like to be sweetened with water. Such gourmets can add a teaspoon of sugar. You can also use special cut flower preparations available from flower shops.
The choice of location is very important. Bouquets should not be placed near radiators, fireplaces, and other sources of heat. Hot and dry air will have a detrimental effect on flowers. They also do not like direct sunlight and drafts. The best place is a bright, cool room and well-humidified air like in a our store.
A correctly composed bouquet of flowers pleases the eye and soul. And taking care of him, you can again relive pleasant moments, remember people and events dear to your heart. Let it last longer.
