Oasis Idea Weekly

33 Quick and Easy Tips to Keep Cut Flowers Fresh
You know the No. 1 consumer objection to buying flowers? Longevity.

The word fresh is the key to retaining repeat customers for flower arrangements. In addition to deterring people from buying flowers, wilted-too-soon flowers can hurt your profits and reputation.

Cut flowers require TLC to not become fast-fading blooms.

So what can you do to ensure your flowers stay fresher longer? 

This week's IDEA Weekly from Smithers-Oasis Design Director Sharon McGukin AIFD, AAF, PFCI features 33 quick yet essential flower care and handling tips business-savvy floral professionals use, based on research from Smithers-Oasis company FloraLife.

As a bonus, you'll also find links to FloraLife’s Five Steps to Fresh plus how to get a free analysis of your water source from the FloraLife lab.
