Flower Tip Tuesdays: Sunflowers!
Today we're sharing some helpful tips on how to care for your stunning sunflowers!
1) Upon arrival, trim at least 1 inch off each stem (sunflowers & 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) Nothing says sunshine on a cloudy day like sunflowers on your table! Sunflowers are very top-heavy, which can often lead to droopy stems. If you cut sunflower stems under running water, it will limit air bubbles in the stems! After cutting, immediately place them into a vase with clean water to reduce droop!
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!
