Monsier Jules Elie
We harvest our Alaskan Peonies in the bud form. This often means that they show very little color. When your flowers arrive, they will be thirsty. No worries! They are just sleeping and will bounce right back if you protect them from excessive heat,
and quickly use the following
Procedures: Once they have arrived:
- Decide whether you want your peonies to open slowly or quickly. Prepare containers with cold water so they will quickly hydrate. We advise you to use the floral preservative that we have placed in your order, or one of your own choosing. This will prolong the vase life of your flowers.
- Cut off 1 to 2 inches of the stems, and remove foliage that will be beneath the container's water.
- You may leave the containers out to hasten opening. Once your flowers are open, place them in the cooler until you are ready to use them. On the other hand, if you want your buds to open more slowly, place the containers with the flowers, immediately in the cooler.
- The size of most of our blooms will surprise you, so make sure there are not too many buds in each container, to allow room for them to fully open.
- Carefully monitor your peonies, because they use a lot of water. Fill with fresh water as needed. Water should be changed every two to three days. Re-cutting the stems at the same time will prolong their life as well.
Avoid storing flowers with vegetables and fruits, because their ethylene may cause your flowers to be affected. Factors that affect vase life are variety, age, treatment, room temperature, etc., but they should last between 5-14 days when properly cared for.
