- pick in the cooler hours of the day
- choose blooms that aren't yet fully open
- don't just break the stems, but cut with a knife or scissors
- don't submerge leaves in the vase water, remove them
- add a couple of drops of bleach and a pinch of sugar to lukewarm water for the vase
- don't display the bouquet in direct sunlight
- don't forget to change the water every few days
Happy flower arranging!
