Flowers are a beautiful and popular way to express love, sympathy, or gratitude. They are often given as gifts, but their lifespan can be limited, which can be a problem for the person who received them. That’s why it’s worth knowing how to prolong the lifespan of cut flowers. In the text below, we will present a few practical tips that will help keep flowers in good condition for longer.

The first step in extending the lifespan of flowers is to cut them correctly. This should be done just before placing the flowers in a vase. It is worth remembering that each species of flower has a different required size for cutting. Most flowers should be cut at a 45-degree angle to increase their water-absorbing surface. This will allow the flowers to absorb water more effectively.

The next step is to choose the right vase. The vase should be appropriately sized and stable so that the flowers do not topple over. If the vase is too small, the flowers will be too close together, which can cause them to rot. The vase should also be clean to avoid the growth of bacteria that can shorten the lifespan of the flowers.
