How to Improve the vase life of cut flowers

Anyone else love having vases of flowers in their home? It’s such a wonderful splash of colour and life… until they start to wilt and fade.

You may have read our previous blog where we mention our sister company Maxstim, through which we are able to conduct our innovative research on plant biostimulants for large agricultural growers. Interestingly, we’re hearing some anecdotal feedback that the use of our biostimulant formulas on growing ornamental flower crops, is subsequently boosting the length of time these flowers are looking their best when cut and displayed in the home.

What does that mean for us?

If you’re already using our specialist 01 Flowers + Shrubs biostimulant, then you’re already on the right path for extending their life when you bring them inside as fresh, decorative flowers.

If you aren’t yet using our unique formula, now is the perfect time to introduce it as our gardens are starting to bloom into technicolour. Find out more here.

How else can you help fresh flowers last longer?

  • Keep your vases clean so they’re not harbouring any bacteria that will prompt your flowers to wilt
  • Use clean water and the correct concentration of flower food. Refresh every 2-3 days
  • Remove any leaves that are below the surface of the water
  • Cut the stems of your flowers with a disinfected blade at a 45 degree angle
  • Avoid placing the vase in direct sunlight and high temperatures, and near any fruit
  • Remove any foliage or stems that are dying to avoid contaminating the whole bunch

What flowers are you looking forward to displaying this year?
