Amborella is probably the most talked about floral shop in Calgary. From Erica Cook’s stunning Instagram feed to Mr. Fab’s Global Calgary segments to the gorgeous, burlap-wrapped surprise deliveries they delivered for Mother’s Day this year. Amborella not only designs really pretty floral bouquets, they also host workshops where you can learn to design your own bouquet and take it home. Yesterday, I attended the Peony Bouquet Workshop and along with my bouquet, I brought home three tips to keep your flower bouquets fresh longer.
Tip One To Keep Your Flower Bouquets Fresh Longer
Trim stems with a diagonal cut every two to three days. This allows more water to get to more surface area of the stems which means more absorption.
Tip Two To Keep Your Flower Bouquets Fresh Longer
Change out the water for fresh water every two to three days. You can do this while you are trimming the stems and it will extend the life of your bouquet.
Tip Three To Keep Your Flower Bouquets Fresh Longer
Store your bouquet in the fridge overnight. When you buy your flowers at a shop, they are stored in a refrigerated section to help them last longer. You can do this at home too!
Bonus tip from Misha, owner of Amborella – Buy yourself one bloom to keep on your bedside table. There is nothing better than waking up to the sight and smell of a fresh flower first thing in the morning.
