5 Tips to Keep Peonies Fresh
Are peonies your favorite flower? 🙋🏻♀️ Mine too.
With their season being so short, below are 5 quick tips to enjoy every last peony bunch as long as possible.
2. Before placing into a vase, make sure to remove any leaves from the lower part of the stems so that they're not submerged in the water. This prevents them from rotting.
3. Keep them away from direct sunlight - I learned this the hard way. I made the mistake of leaving an arrangement right next to a window that received a lot of direct sun, and came back to find out they had drastically lost their color and some petals had started falling off.
4. Store them in the fridge at night - If you have the space, put them in your fridge. Doing so will prolong their life.
5. Trim the stems and replace the water every day or every other day - Cut the stems at a diagonal for maximum water absorption. Use cold water or drop an ice cube or two into the vase.
