Best Way to Preserve Flowers


One of the most asked questions that we get from our customers is how to preserve flowers and what is the best way to do it. The reason why people are asking that question so of the is because flowers are known to last for a couple of days. Usually, after they have been delivered they will be looking nice and staying in shape for about 1 or 2 days. After that, they will start to show early signs of falling apart. The most common flower that people are purchasing here at the flower delivery Dublin is the rose.

Post1aRoses are the iconic flower for expressing feelings that cannot be expressed otherwise. They are an item that can show love and appreciation to other people. It is truly a one of a kind flower that has many different meanings. Of course, in order to express different feeling, people are purchasing different colored roses. Fortunately, all the roses have the same quality and the only true difference is in their color. However, one bad thing that is happening to roses after 2 or 3 days is that they will start losing petals.

Preventing Petals from Falling Off

One of the main problems that flowers have is that they will start losing petals over time. A lot of people are searching for a way to find some method that will prevent the petals from falling off because they want to preserve the flower. Preserving the flower is a complicated process and in the end, flowers will never look the same when you first got them. The only thing you can do is to preserve their petals from falling off. That way whenever you look at the flower it will look the same, it will only change the color of them because over time they will dry out.

Post1bDrying out the flower is one of the methods of preserving it. We at Flower Delivery Ireland think that this method of preserving is the best one and it has the best results. Now to talk about how to actually dry them. First, you need to separate them if you have a bouquet into smaller sections because that way they will dry out faster. When you have separated them or if you have only one rose, you need to hang them upside down. That way they will dry out the fastest way and the petals will not fall off.

Hang them in a place that has a lot of air circulation, that way the flowers will dry out in a week. When they are dry enough, you must be very gentle with them because they can break quite easily. Handle them with a lot of care, and you want to place them on some place where they will not be moved a lot or touched because if someone tries to smell them they can ruin them.
