Flower Arranging Tips – Process Your Flowers

Hi There,

This is a step you should never overlook, and I’ll bet most of you do overlook this step!  When you get flowers, either from your yard, the grocery store, etc., make sure to process them.  At a minimum, give them a fresh cut, remove any foliage that will fall below the water line and put them into water with flower preservative.  If at all possible, dip them in a hydrating solution after the fresh cut and before putting them into water iwth preservative.  My favorite hydrating liquid is called “Quick Dip” and it is made by Floralife.  In an absolute ideal world, you would then put your flowers in a refrigerator overnight….I know, this is a step you will probably never do.  I caution you though, if you are attempting to do a big floral job, like for a wedding, this is a step that should not be bypassed.
