How does temperature affect flowers?

Heat causes flowers to respire at a higher rate and so fade; the cooler the room or location they’re in, the longer they will last. However, cold or draughty conditions may cause petals to dry out too. A moderate, sheltered position is best.

Why do you say that flowers should not be placed near fruit?

As fruit ripens it gives off a gas called ethylene. Flowers do not react well to this gas and will die very quickly when exposed to it.

Why cut stems at a 45° angle?

Between the flower shop and your house, stems will dry out. By re-cutting them at an angle, you are removing dry fibre and ensuring a wide surface to take up fresh water. Putting stems into water while cutting them helps them to absorb even more water, and so stay fresh for longer.

What’s the point of flower food?

It contains three additives which nourish flowers and deter bacteria:

  • sugars to feed the blooms and encourage buds.
  • biocides to kill the fungi, yeasts and bacteria.
  • acidifiers to encourage water to rise up flowers’ stems.

Do lemonade, coins, bleach or aspirins make flowers last longer?

No. If anything, they might encourage the growth of bacteria.
