Flower Tip Tuesdays: Gerbera Daisies!
This Flower Tip Tuesday, we're dropping some amazing tips on how to care for your gorgeous Gerbs!
1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem (gerberas & 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 bright gerbera daisies (or "gerbs," as the cool kids are saying)! Gerbs’ hollow stems can sometimes make them droopy. Here’s a trick to counteract “droop”: stick a safety pin into the stem about 1 inch below the bloom. Remove pin, trim stems at an angle, and put flowers in fresh water. In a few hours, they should perk up.
4) Say cheese! You’re a flower designer, and the world needs to know! Post a pic of your design on social media and tag us @revasedflowers for a chance to be featured!
