HOW LONG DO FARM-FRESH FLOWERS LAST? HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY FLOWERS?
Our flowers are freshly cut, conditioned appropriately, and stored in floral preservative. Typically they have a vase life of 4-7 days or more. Some flowers naturally have a shorter vase life, such as dinner-plate dahlias or poppies.
To get the longest life from your flowers, follow these care instructions:
Fresh flowers drink a ton! Check your vase often to ensure it stays full.
Re-cut flower stems with sharp scissors and change water every 2 days.
Keep flowers out of direct sunlight and away from ripening fruit.
