Effective Flower Care and Handling Tips From The Pros

Effective Flower Care and Handling Tips From The Pros

Proper flower care and handling is a critical part of our business. I love hearing from my customers about how long the flowers they bought from our shop lasted. They’re often quite surprised.

We’re not surprised, however, knowing the quality and care that the flowers we sell receive from the time they are harvested to the time they are sold.

I came across a good video on the subject of cut flower care that lays out the steps the pros use when it comes to flower care and handling.

With the number of DIYers who work with flowers for weddings and events, I this video will be helpful in understanding proper cut flower care. Watch it and see if you agree.

I hope that the video was useful, and you are equipped with the proper knowledge and tools to make all of your flowers last longer.

And while we’re on the topic, all of the Floralife cut flower care products used in this video, including QuicK Dip, flower food, and Finishing Touch can easily be found online.

Crowning Glory can be used in place of Finishing Touch, as it does essentially the same thing, but it is actually formulated more for wedding bouquet work, where more delicate flowers are often used.

All of these flower care products can also be found in a convenient Floralife starter kit as well.

Truly. That’s the only reason I’m here with you now. πŸ™‚


So look, before we continue, there happens to be something important I want to come clean about. To be honest, I really put together this blog for myself.

You see, I’m always getting asked questions about the best way to care for cut flowers, and I honestly just wanted a place where I could send people to get all their questions answered (by watching the same flower care video you just got finished with) in one place.

With that said, I also see a lot of opportunity in creating this site. Why lie?

I enjoy earning a bit of sponsorship revenue on the side, as I share awesome floral-related tutorials with you. I hope you’re cool with that.

As you’ve likely gathered, I don’t pull any punches. But at the same time… selling you stuff isn’t my goal here. If you get the itch to buy anything from any of my sponsors, cool! But if this isn’t the case, no problem. You just being here is good enough for me. πŸ™‚

I’m just cool with watching and sharing floral arranging tutorials with like-minded people! πŸ˜‰

So that’s why FlowersFloralFlorist exists. It’s pretty much just a floral tutorial site for those who love flowers like I do. Sound good? Great! It’d be great to have you over again sometime. πŸ˜‰
