Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 08, 2012
McShan Florist, a trusted Dallas florist since 1948, gives customers key tips on how to keep holiday bouquets, flowers and greenery fresh throughout the holiday season. These home remedies are drawn from the experience of over 65 years in the floral business. The florist recommends placing cut flowers in cold water, as warm water will dehydrate the flowers.
Temperature is the major factor affecting the storage and vase life of flowers. Cooling cut flowers reduces metabolic activity, and slows the rate of opening of the flowers. When cooling flowers, McShan Florist recommends that the cold water completely covers the stems of the flowers. However, when you are not cooling flowers, there is no need to have the water go higher on the stems then six inches.
"I always recommend removing all leaves and foliage below the water line and recutting the stems every few days," said Bruce A. McShan, owner of McShan Florist.
McShan Florist offers a distinctive selection of holiday floral arrangements, fruit and gourmet gift baskets, candy and balloon baskets and plants that make a festive hostess gift during the holiday season. McShan's Christmas collection includes beautiful centerpieces, decorated 2 foot trees, silk wreaths and other festive holiday bouquets.
