I’m getting married this saturday. I bought about 3 dozen Gerber Daisies yesterday at my local farmers market because I found them at a really good price. I’m planning on doing my own bouquets. I asked the florist if they would last till Saturday and she assured me they would. I have them in a huge bucket of cold water but I just noticed that the ends of the petals are turing brown! When I bought them yesterday they were very fresh.
Any ladies out there florists? Or have flower expeirence? How do I bring my flowers back to life?!?

did you trim the stems prior to putting them into water?

Yes I did. I even trimmed them at an angle like its suppose to be done. (Right?) lol

Maybe call a couple local florist shops and see if they have any advise. Maybe they can sell you some flower food to make them last longer!!

The florists also use a special packet of stuff to keep the flowers fresher longer. You might want to check into that. However, you may have gotten a really good deal on the flowers because they were getting ready to turn.

I did an experiment in middle school and found that white mums lasted longer with a little sugar added to the water than mums placed in water alone . . . . not saying that will help or anything, but it’s worth a shot if you cannot get a florist to help out!
