Ensuring vase life longevity for your peonies
Ensuring your flowers remain beautifully fresh for as long as possible is a must.
People often ask me this question so I have detailed a few tips and tricks to ensure you get the most from your bunch.
If you are picking up flowers for a special event and have to travel, use buckets filled with cold water and add ice, particularly if it is a hot day.
Once at home, pick a vase which suits the flower or the look you like. I have a vase which is tall a narrow neck. It hold the stems perfectly. If you don't mind snipping stems a shorter vase will do the trick.
Choose a spot which is out of direct sunlight, so the rays aren't beating down on the blooms and a room that isn't really warm. A cooler spot in the house is better.
Fill a vase with cool water and add ice if you have some left over from your trip. Peonies use a lot of water so fill the vase at least half way.
Refresh water and snip every third day and enjoy.
