Flower Tip Tuesdays: Hypericum Berries!
This Flower Tip Tuesday, we're dropping some amazing tips on how to care for your Hypericum Berries!
1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem (hypericum berries & 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 sprinkling your bouquets with hypericum berries! Have you noticed that hypericum berries last well beyond the leaves? Here’s a trick: when you notice the leaves are getting crunchy but the berries are still bright and beautiful, simply remove the leaves! This also helps any bacteria on the aging leaves from damaging the rest of the flowers.
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!
