Associated with beauty they have a lot of significance both in literature and in religion. Fresh cut flowers are considered to be auspicious in every religion. It is offered as an offering to god. They are also used in various other ways. They are used for decorations, used as ornaments by women. They are also used in decorating food items especially wedding cakes. Blossoms like lavender, rose, marigold and day lilies are used for this purpose. A list the beauty and uses of fresh cut flowers would be large indeed.

In ancient times fresh cut flowers were used by women as ornaments. They used them in garlands for beautification. Fresh cut flowers are beautiful to see and equally easy to maintain. It is always pleasant to see beautiful blooms at your home. Many options are available for decorating your house. Out of the countless varieties available some common ones to decorate your house with can be Daffodils, Roses, Lilies, Sunflower, Tulips and Zinnia. But again it is very depressing to see your favorite blossoms die in front of your eyes. So you need to take good care of them. There is nothing to worry about. It is very easy to preserve fresh cut flowers.

For preserving your blossoms you can simply follow a few rules. Always ensure that you get them early in the morning. The morning dew leaves them fresh. Have a nice, big vase to keep them, this way they get enough space to grow. Have your flowers nicely trimmed. To preserve them longer use 2 ounces of mouthwash solution to each gallon of water you will use in your vase. Don’t make the stems too short. Make them 1-2 inches short from the stem at a 45 degree angle. Don’t keep them near ripe fruits or direct sunlight. Ripe fruits release chemicals that wither them faster. Try to move them to a cooler place at night.
