Preserving Cut Flowers and Herbs for Weddings and Events

Vic VioletsnRoses      You can arrange and press your own herbs and flowers. 

You can grow your own wedding flowers and make your own wedding bouquet.



Homemade Floral Preservative: Ratio of  – 1 can or 7-UP or Sprite, to 1 can water = 1/2teaspoon bleach.




Keep completed floral arrangements out of direct sunlight, placed in a cool location. Occasional misting will prevent wilting. Commercial floral preservatives or a bit of bleach in the water may increase longevity of cut flowers and herbs, but if used, do not use plant materials in, on or around food or beverages.
