Therefore, we came up with a top three wedding styles.

DON’T LET A SINGLE FLOWER GO TO WAISTE WITH THESE CARE TIPS!

That Dahlias are beautiful is a fact, to make sure you can enjoy these floral beauties the longest we came up with the following care tips:

  • It starts with the vase! Use a suitable clean vase and fill it with tap water.
  • Add some Chrysal cut flower food, to ensure a longer vase life.
  • After transportation, flowers need to consume a lot of water. Make sure to cut the Dahlias diagonally by 3 to 5 cm with a sharp knife. By cutting the stem diagonally the drinking surface becomes larger.
  • Remove the unnecessary leaves; make sure there are no leaves hanging in the water.
  • Especially during Summer it is important to keep the Dahlias out of the full sun and draught. Just like many other flowers, they don’t like the heat too much.
  • Make sure to refresh the water regularly, because Dahlias are thirsty.
  • Last but not least, don’t place the flowers near fruits. Fruits emit ethylene gas and this will cause the flowers to age more rapidly.
