Make Fresh Flowers Last Longer

It’s always so nice to have fresh fresh flowers in your home, isn’t it?

Well I recently came across two easy ways to keep blooms around even longer:

  1. Dunk buds in room temperature water before putting them in a vase to prolong their life by a few days
  2. When keeping flowers in the kitchen, keep them away from fruits and veggies since they both release the gas ethylene, which increases the rate at which flowers wilt

Having fresh flowers around is proven to be a natural mood-booster. I love getting mine at Trader Joe’s -  great variety and awesome prices. I especially love sunflowers. What are you some of your favorites?

p.s. Happy first day of summer!!

  1. Great tips and I love getting flowers from Trader Joe’s too. Actually sometimes Ariyana and Aneesh go together on Sunday and they bring back flowers for me. So sweet :)
