Your Cornflower just arrived! Now they need to be hydrated and processed. It is important to give your bulk flowers a couple of hours to hydrate and replenish. Depending on the variety purchased, some fresh cut wholesale flowers may need 24 to 36 hours to hydrate and perk up.
CARE AND HANDLING FOR CORNFLOWER
- Place your Cornflower in clean, fresh, filtered water. Carefully remove leaves, thorns or foliage that fall under the water level (without tearing the stem skin) to avoid the build-up of bacteria. Cut one inch off the end of the flower stem in a 45-degree angle (with a sharp knife NOT scissors) to allow water to be better absorbed through the stems. After cutting the stem at an angle, quickly place the fresh cut flowers in water since it only takes a minute for the stem to dry and seal up.
- Keep your Cornflower in a shaded, cool, relatively humid area. Fresh cut flowers may be stored indoors with A/C or in a floral cooler above 40F. Avoid placing your wedding flowers near heat surfaces or environments. Your wedding flowers must be in water at all times until they are ready to be used.
- Do not keep your flowers in the refrigerator overnight since many fruit and vegetable gases can damage your fresh cut flowers.
- When storing your wedding flowers, make sure that they are not moved from cold to hot or from hot to cold temperatures since drastic temperature changes will burn your fresh cut wholesale flowers.
