After a busy wedding day there is always plenty of clearing up and organising to manage. Decisions have to be made about what should be kept and what shouldn’t. As your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life, it is only natural that you should wish to preserve the most valuable features associated with it. A wedding bouquet of flowers is one such item that most newlyweds will want to save for posterity. This can be done simply and effectively by following these simple steps. In this way, your wedding flowers can be preserved for decades to come.
Organising the bouquet after the wedding
Immediately after the big day, you should aim to organise the wedding flowers in the best way possible. It is essential that the flowers should not be laid down flat on any surface. Instead, someone should take the flowers home for you immediately and place them in a vase without water. Make sure that the flowers are photographed in the vase straight away as you will need this to have an idea of exactly how to preserve them. Read More →
The life support of flowers
Adding new water
The water in vase needs to be changed on a regular basis. The water with flower food in it, need to be changed because the bacteria level may exceed the limit. The vase should be filled with water at room temperature, and then some flower food is too added. Please keep in mind that you leave on leftover leaves or stems in the changed water, as this debris can cause the hike in bacteria’s growth.
Snipping the stems
After few days or may be also in one day, the flower stems get blocked. This can be because of the suction of flower food by stems through the water, or by the bacteria work on the cut ends. What you got to do is to simply remove the flower from the design, cut the stem and then put it back in the vase. You must be wondering how much to snip the stem? It’s generally 3/4th of an inch that should be trimmed off the stem. While cutting just take care that you cut the stem at an angle. By cutting the stem at an angle you increase the chances of the flower to suck in water. Don’t you ever use blunt knife or scissor to cut off the stem, as uneven cuts blocks the pores of the stem. The sharp cut by sharp floral scissor or cutter, keeps the pores alive and active. You should also be avoiding the piercing or smashing of the stems, as this can also trouble the water vessels of the flower. Once the water vessels are damaged, the flower loses its ability to survive as the life support won’t be reaching the flower through stem.
The foliage also stops the flow of water through the stem, so please make sure the water line of stem is active. When you place the flowers in vase, they often get misplaced, so you can go for tiering the stems with twine, at some place just above the vase edge.

When planning a landscaping design, it’s important to aim for a mixture of different types of plants. Consider how different species grow together in nature. Trees, shrubs, fruits, flowers, mushrooms, moss—all of these different species share ecosystems and support each other through their unique qualities. Likewise, when planting your garden, you’ll create a more pleasing aesthetic experience—and a stronger, healthier landscape overall—if you include a blend of plant types. Flowers are an important ingredient in that mix and not just because they delight the senses.
Below, we explain the scientific, gustatory, and psychological reasons for including flowers in your landscaping.
Landscaping Contractors’ Top Reasons for Planting Flowers
1. Flowers Attract Pollinators.
How does your garden grow? Well, without pollinators (think bees, hummingbirds, moths) many plants in your garden won’t grow at all. Bees, butterflies, and other pollinators serve the important role of spreading around pollen, the reproductive dust that plants produce. Without a healthy mix of pollen, many of your vegetables won’t blossom, nor will they be able to fruit. Brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, cucumbers, melons, kale, eggplants, and many other vegetables need insect pollinator partners for pollination. So, if you’re aiming to produce a bumper crop this year, you should also include plenty of flowers in your garden. Read More →
