How Do I Keep My Greenery Fresh?
To get the longest life out of your fresh Christmas greenery, it’s best to start with the freshest greenery you can find, right here at The Floral Studio. Be picky and choose the best boughs””they’ll be much easier to keep fresh if they’re in great shape when you buy them!
To make sure your greenery has the longest life possible, whether you purchase one of our arrangements or fresh sprigs for garland, give it a quick spray outdoors with an anti-transpirant spray to slow the water evaporation over time. When placing your greenery, be sure to keep them away from heat sources or air vents, as this will dry them out. Spritz with water every couple of days, and your fresh greenery should last 3-4 weeks!
What Are the Best Kinds of Greenery for Christmas?
- For elegant, draping greenery, cedar and boxwood are the perfect choice and will hold their needles well through the season.
- For full, hardy boughs, try juniper (which has berries!) or fir. Their texture and shape create a statement and can make stunning features.
- Pine, of course, has long needles that are elegant and beautiful, perfect for table runners or wreaths.
- For something modern and different, try holly, eucalyptus, or magnolia. You can also mix these in with your traditional evergreen boughs to add a touch of something unique.
