The Best Time to Cut Flowers
In order to achieve the best results imaginable you have to gather the flowers early in the morning, before sunrise or after sunset, before the night falls. The general idea is that you must not expose the cut flower to too much sunlight or too much heat. Therefore you must also remember that it is important for you to pick the flowers in a cool day with a cool weather, not freezing but balanced and cool. Aim for a temperature somewhere less than 80 degrees of Farenheit.

The problem that is caused by higher temperatures and exposure to direct sunlight during the process of cutting consists in the fact that the metabolism of the flower will be quickened and the flower’s energy will be greatly deducted, this experience is something similar to a human stroke . Take care of your flower and it will repay you with its beauty. In addition, if you cut the flower when the sun is shining and the air all around it is hot, its water naturally gets more easily evaporated and by the time you put the flower in the vase with the new water, the flower will most likely have been damaged to a great degree.

The crucial period for cut flowers is between the moment they are cut and the moment when they are placed in the vase with fresh water supplies. No sudden evaporation of water will take place in the evening or the early morning when the air is the coldest and the sun is nowhere to be seen. However, you must not cut flowers that are wet in any way because once cut they are very vulnerable to diseases. If the flower has any sort of liquid on it when it is cut off, the moisture upon it may develop some sort of bacteria and then the flower may wane even faster than if it was cut off during a sunny hot day.

Useful Tools
The tools that can prove to be very helpful in the cutting flower process are scissors, that enable you to make a nice, clean, straight cut, without any plant particles remaining on the end of the cut of the stem. Also, remember that everything must always be clean. Change the water and wash the flower itself every day.
