Extend Flower vitality 1-5 days

OASIS® Floral Products Design Director Kevin Ylvisaker, AIFD, PFCI, is a floral trend consultant with decades of experience in floral design, including serving on the design team for two presidential inaugurations
Extend flower vitality one to five days in one easy step!
Spring is a great time to think about fresh. Because flower freshness is the number one thing your customers care about.  

Every florist knows the basics, right? Sanitize, hydrate and nourish, the latter two as soon as possible.

But many of us shorten the enjoyable life of our arrangements because we skip one more easy step.

Which step? Finishing spray.

How much difference can it make? 
As floral arrangers, most of us are more heart than head. But here goes anyways: research by scientists at Floralife, a division of Smithers-Oasis Company shows proper application of finishing spray extends useful display life one to five days. 

None of the science matters if your experience is different. And in mine, finishing spray works. The flowers still open and they last longer. I use it-specifically Floralife® Finishing Touch Spray - on everything.

How you apply it matters
I said finishing spray is easy to use (and it cost just pennies per application, too). And it is. But how you apply it does matter. 
  • Be sure to shake the Finishing Touch container before and during use.
  • Apply a light mist to every part: flowers, leaves, stems. Light, light, keep it light!
  • Let it dry before you send it for delivery.

And that's it.    

Like you, when I create beautiful arrangements, I want my clients to enjoy them as long as possible. 

Have a wonderfully fresh spring!
