Stock Flower Care
Care for cut stock flowers is similar to most other fresh-cut flowers. When your stock flowers arrive to your door, begin the care process by removing any leaves and foliage from the lower parts of the stems that will be submerged in water. This prevents rotting and premature wilting. Cut the end of the stem at a 45-degree angle to promote water absorption and keep your flowers alive longer. Place them in a vase filled with clean, fresh water. Feed them with cut flower food and store them in a cool place away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat.
