Flowers help to express senses and emotions far better than words. The beauty and the wonderful smell of flowers are always significant and live in memory for a long period. The types of flowers are numerous: wild-growing or home-grown, exotic and typical, big and small and so forth. Nearly all the flowers have their own meaning, but for most people to get a bouquet of beautiful flowers means “You are a special person to me” or “I love you”.
Arranging flowers is a lot of fun, although when you don’t have time for that you have a possibility to select pre-arranged flowers, and you will only have to check the level of the water in the vase daily. But if you’d like to arrange flowers without assistance keep in mind that there are two basic versions of arranging: “all around” – for the flowers that are meant to be located in the center of the table and to be viewed from all sides, and “one-sided” – for flowers that are meant to be placed in such a way that the other side will not be viewed.
Whilst choosing flowers note that seasonal flowers are not only less expensive than out-of-season ones, but they last longer as well. It’s a good idea to mix different types of flowers since it will make the bunch more colorful and brighter. By the way, if it includes delicate and long living flowers the bouquet will have a longer life.
And eventually a number of recommendations on flower care. Take into account that the vase where you place pre-arranged flowers should always be full of room temperature water. Put the bowl in a cool location out of direct sunlight, make certain that there are no electrical gadgets or ventilators in the place of a bouquet. Freshly cut flowers should be re-cut under the stream of water with a pair of sharp scissors and then placed in a vase with room temperature water. Floral preservatives are also used to keep the flowers live longer.
If your flowers are half-withered you may try the following. Put the whole flower in a big container with warm water, cut the stems with a sharp knife and leave them under water for a couple of hours. This method will help them to revive.
Hope that these simple tips will help you to enjoy your flowers for a long period of time and to give joy to your friends and relatives.
