Keeping leaves out of water

Posted by on September 03, 2015

You have often heard that you always remove the leaves from a flower stem below the waterline—why is that? It’s a general rule of thumb as leaves discolor the water, can cause the flowers to wilt faster since they use up water and can encourage the growth of slimy stuff. And remember, flowers use up the most water in the first day, so keep that watering can handy! And change the water every two to four days so. The example here of our beautiful Hydrangea - in store right now. See these and other beautiful blooms in our Douglas Road store or online.
