So you just received a beautiful bouquet of peony buds as a gift and you want them to last as long as possible. What to do? Here is some tips on fresh cut flowers care from Natalia, the owner of Motle Grass floral studio.
Leave you peonies in a cool place for several hours to let them recover after the transportation.
Prepare your glass or ceramic vase: clean it thoroughly, pour some clean warm water in and add a cut flower food provided with a bouquet.
Transfer your peonies into prepared vase and place it in a cooler room for 1 or 2 days until the buds will open. Check your water daily and top it up.
If your flowers are intended to decorate an event, try to keep them in a cold place as long as possible to prolong their life. Do not put them close to the heat source or direct sunlight and bring them out only as needed.
