How To Make Your Flowers Last Longer

how to make your flowers last longer

So you’ve just got your fresh flower delivery from Dubai flowers and would love to enjoy the blooms for as long as possible? It can be a struggle to keep flowers in the UAE alive for more than a few days. Especially during the hottest of days or in the coldest air-conditioned rooms like ours. These tips will help you keep those gorgeous bouquets going. 

Whether you’ve ordered a flower delivery in Dubai for yourself or arranged for some special flowers in the UAE to be gifted as a surprise, the key to making fresh-cut flowers last longer is patience and careful preparation.

Cut The Stems

The first step in making sure your fresh flower delivery lasts as long as possible is to trim excessively lengthy stems. Cut them at an angle to optimize each stem’s intake of water and to ensure that they don’t lie flat on the bottom of your vase. 

Trim And Prune

Excess foliage and leaves lead to clogged stems, microbial growth, and rotting water, leading your blooms from Dubai Flowers to go bad quicker than they need to. Check each stem daily for loose leaves and petals and cut off any that are below the water level.

Flowers In The UAE Should Be Kept At The Right Temperature

Most freshly cut flowers delivered in Dubai, should be kept in temperatures between 33°F and 35°F. This is especially important when getting flowers delivered to UAE in peak summer. You can chill the vase in the fridge for a few hours to help with this, and some even add ice cubes to the water when the flowers are left for long periods of time.

Freshly cut flowers that are delivered to the UAE should be kept away from direct sunlight and heat. Display them away from a bright window and away from hot appliances. 

Check The Water Of Your Dubai Flowers

Cut flowers will never last long without fresh and clean water. Just like you need to stay hydrated, your fresh flower deliveries need plenty of hydration as well. It is also important not to submerge your blooms in water either. Make sure the stems are sufficiently covered, without any foliage, leaves, and petals drowning under the water. If you notice that some petals and leaves are getting drier than the rest, you can spray small amounts of water directly on those areas.  

Some people add a small teaspoon of sugar or lemon juice to large bouquets of flowers for added nutrition and freshness. If you find that the water gets cloudy too quickly, replace it with fresh water and add a spoon of apple cider vinegar to balance the pH levels of your flower delivery in Dubai.

Check The Arrangement Of Your Dubai Flowers Bouquet

Our bouquets are curated and arranged with your special occasion in mind. Our flowers are all handpicked and imported from countries like Holland, Kenya, Columbia, and Thailand and so need to be taken care of and displayed appropriately.
