Winter can be a difficult season in terms of weather conditions. Therefore, you must make sure that your flowers do not lack anything they need:

The right temperature

Temperature plays an essential role in the condition of the flowers. It is necessary to be careful not to expose them to too low or too high temperatures. Both will only contribute to the damage or even the end of the plants. When you have an arrangement, a box of hydrangeas or a unique bouquet from which you can no longer take your eyes, place the flowers in a room where the temperature is constant. Avoiding sudden changes in temperature will prolong the life of the flowers, and you will enjoy their beauty for longer.


In the cold season it is important to make sure that the flowers receive enough water. The aspect that you need to pay more attention to is the amount of water that you give to each plant, so as not to exaggerate. Some need to be watered a little and often, and others less often. As mentioned above, in the case of flowers that you put in a vase, it is advisable to change their water so that they keep their freshness.

The light

Light is one of the elements that influence the condition of flowers. Be careful to position the plants so that they have as much light as possible. Do not stick them to the window and do not let the leaves or flowers come in contact with the window as the temperature difference could damage them.

Flowers that are properly cared for each season will have a long lifespan and will delight your eyes every time you notice their beauty. If you want a flower that does not need to be cared for so carefully, you can turn your attention to cryogenic roses. Of course, when it comes to the winter holidays, you can call a Christmas arrangement which will beautify this time of year.
