TLC for Tough Carnations

Carnations are always a top seller in the floral industry, expressing love, fascination, and distinction. They are also one of the most durable flowers with a great life longevity. However, make sure they stay away from ethylene, which can significantly decrease their vase life as the flowers will wilt prematurely. The Society of American Florists recommends to cut stems above the stem node, to keep the flowers hydrated in flower food, and avoid any exposure to ethylene to maintain those carnations in tip top shape!
