Extend the Life of Your Flowers

Preparing Your Vase | Viola Floral

Bouquets: Prepare Your Vase

  • Use a clean vase to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria
  • Fill the vase with fresh, cool water (very cold or hot water can shock the flowers)
  • Give the stems a fresh cut before placing them in the vase
  • Re-cut every 2-3 days if possible to keep your bouquet fresh
Placement and Environment | Viola Floral

Placement and Environment

  • Choose a suitable location and keep your flowers away from direct sunlight, drafts and vents
  • Maintain a comfortable room temperature – most flowers thrive between 65-72°F
  • For dried flower bouquets, avoid places with high humidity
Water and Maintenance | Viola Floral

Water and Maintenance

  • Change the water every 1-2 days or as often as you remember
  • Remove leaves below the waterline, which prevents the growth of bacteria
  • Ensure that all of your stems are submerged in the water
Troubleshooting | Viola Floral


  • Every stem has a different expected vase life – as blooms expire, pull them out
  • For dried flower bouquets, use a blow dryer on a cold, low setting to gently blow off dust that accumulates over time
