Flower Tip Tuesdays: Eucalyptus!
Today we're sharing some helpful tips on how to care for your eucalyptus stems!
1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem (eucalyptus & every stem in the bouquet!), on an angle. Trimming on an angle allows for more surface area for the flowers to drink the water.
2) Fill a clean vase ¼ full with fresh water + flower food, or a creative at home flower solution! (If you run out of flower food: adding soda, vinegar, or even aspirin to your vase can help prolong your flowers’ life!) Place stems in clean water. As leaves in the vase water can increase bacteria, remove any leaves below the water line.
3) We love adding eucalyptus stems to your bouquets-- they add a pop of green and fresh fragrance! Did you know that eucalyptus stems can last up to 3 weeks in fresh water? Even when the other flowers in your bouquet are wilting, you can pick out the eucalyptus stems and place them in their own vase with fresh water. A vase with eucalyptus brightens any space: try placing it on the dining room table, window, or bookcase.
4) Say cheese! Post a pic of your design on social media and tag us @revasedflowers for a chance to be featured!
