If it's a cold season, let the flowers stay in the house completely wrapped up for a while, then gradually open them.

To the bouquet was long fresh, before you put it in the vase, be sure to remove the packaging and refresh the slices of flowers. It must be done in water, so that air bubbles do not clog the capillaries and give free access to moisture to the stem. Be sure to remove all the lower leaves from the stem, and the roses and thorns.

It is also possible to disinfect water with aspirin, charcoal, vinegar or a teaspoon of alcohol. Some advise adding a pinch of washing powder or a drop of detergent. In order to feed the flowers, add a teaspoon of sugar to the vase or use the currently available fertilizing for different types of flowers.
