Sunflower Care Tips

Like many other flowers, vased sunflowers can last up to 5-7 days when properly cared for. It all starts with the first few minutes upon the flowers arriving. Find a vase of water and allow the flowers to stand in it, still wrapped, as you prepare a proper vase. A long vase works best because these flowers can be so long.

The vase you prepare for the flowers should be filled with room-temperature water. Allow the water to sit until it reaches the appropriate warmth. Flower food is a great addition to the vase to extend the life of your beautiful blooms. If you don’t have a packet of flower food, you can make your own. Simply dissolve a half-teaspoon of sugar or a full teaspoon of lemon juice.

Next, you want to cut the stems of the flowers so that they look great in the vase while also taking up more fresh water. Make your cuts slanted, about one half-inch from the stem’s end. It is also important that you remove all leaves hanging into the water so that you don’t get a rotting smell from your otherwise fragrant flowers.

Lastly, remember that sunflowers are quite thirsty. They require plenty of fresh water, so make sure to check your vase regularly.

Don’t forget that the sunflower is the traditional anniversary flower for the third year of wedded bliss. Don’t forget to send your loved one a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers to mark this very special occasion!
