All of us must admit to it happening at least once. Upon receiving a gorgeous bouquet, we admire the vivid array of colors that greet our dancing eyes, inhale the intoxicating scents, and then, we manage to... well, forget. Within a few days our beautiful bouquet is reduced to a faded and drooping version of its former glory. Not everyone is born with a green thumb, but optimizing the life of your bouquet does not require professional knowledge. Flowers, as any living creation, need attention and care to remain strong and healthy. Remembering a few key tips will keep your bouquet in good health for much longer.
 
First of all, upon receiving the bouquet, there are necessary steps that must be taken immediately to ensure a long life. Secondly, and of most importance to the plants, is water.

You will also be quite pleased with yourself, as seeing the bouquet now shows your contribution to its beauty and continued strength. Care starts the moment you receive your gift, as it is vital for the flower's future health.
