Quick Tips For Processing Fresh Flowers Like A Pro

Quick Tips For Processing Fresh Flowers Like A Pro

This video covers tips and techniques for processing fresh flowers. While there are tons of floral design videos online, only a handful teach you the basics of flower care the way the pros do it.

It’s important to note that not all flowers are alike and using these different tips and techniques will ensure that your fresh flowers perform better and last longer.

Whether you purchase flowers from a reputable floral outlet or cut them from your own garden, implementing these basic steps will make you a pro when it comes to taking care of fresh flowers.

I really think you will find this video quite useful. Take a look and see if you agree.

Did you enjoy the video?

In my opinion, it really explains how to process flowers the way it should be done. I certainly hope you put these tips to good use because it’s a crucial step you need to do whenever you receive flowers.

It doesn’t matter whether they’re purchased locally or from a floral outlet online, the process is still the same.

I’m always amazed at the number of floral designers out there today who really don’t know how to properly process flowers, or don’t use the right tools.

In fact, it’s the first thing we teach anyone who works for our shop, whether they’re a newbie or a seasoned pro, because our reputation depends on the quality and vase life of the flowers we sell. That starts with proper flower care.

By the way, in case you’re interested, the bunch cutter, floral knife, and the floral preservative used in the video can be found on our Amazon shop page. We also use these tools as well as all of the products listed on the page in our shop.

My name is Greg, the owner of Greenfield Flower Shop, and the guy who created this site. I’m really here to share loads of amazing floral tutorials with you. That’s honestly the reason why I’m here. 🙂

Okay, so here’s the big ol’ “but”…

Alright, before we even begin, I want to confess to something. I originally crafted this site for myself and my staff. See, I love watching video tutorials (like the fresh flower processing vid you just got finished watching), and I honestly just wanted a place where my staff and I could access the most worthwhile ones under one roof.

I also believe that there is no shortage of opportunities online, which is another motivating factor in my decision to create this site. Why not just be honest, right?

I love sharing great content, and I also enjoy earning sponsorship revenues and affiliate commissions… hopefully, you don’t see anything wrong with that.

As you’ve likely noticed, I’m not one to pull punches. But… Sales pitches suck, they’re not my style, and making money is not my key motivator for running this blog.

If something being offered on my site appeals to you, that would be an awesome bonus! But if this isn’t the case, then no worries. You just being here is good enough for me. 🙂

The truth is, I’m very passionate about sharing my love of flowers with like-minded people… like you! 😉

It’s for this reason that I created FlowersFloralFlorist. It’s really an “all under one roof” video resource for both myself and others who are interested in all things floral-related. I hope you can appreciate that. If so, I’d love to see you here again. 😉

So make this site one that you return to! I’m gonna keep sharing tons of high-quality videos in areas including flowers, weddings, and plants… and we’re just warming up.
