Additional Information

  • Check out our downloadable worksheet on proper cutting techniques. (Here)

  • Most people spend about an hour or so on the farm.

  • Once you have cut your flowers, go checkout at the farm store. Transfer your flowers from your cup or bucket to your own and ENJOY the beauty you harvested.

ONCE YOU GET HOME

 

  • We do not recommend leaving your flowers in a hot car and try to keep them out of direct sunlight. 

  • The most important thing to keep your flowers fresh is starting with a clean vase or jar at home. Using hot soapy water or even a touch of bleach to clean it after each use is super important. Bacteria in the water clog the stems’ ability to take up water and will drastically reduce vase life.

  • Give the stems a fresh cut at a 45-degree angle with sharp scissors before putting them in the clean vase(s) at home. This maximizes the surface area for water uptake.

  • Be sure there are no leaves below the water line in the vase. This will cause the water to build bacteria quickly.

  • We recommend every 2-3 days changing the water and giving the stems a fresh cut on the bottom.

  • Keeping the flowers away from direct sunlight will also extend their vase life.

 

 If you follow these few steps your flowers should provide you awesome vase life!
