How to Make Lavender Blossoms Last Longer: Expert Tip

Harvesting Time: Harvest lavender blossoms early in the morning after the dew has evaporated but before the sun is too intense. This helps preserve their essential oils and freshness. 

Cutting Technique: Use sharp scissors or pruning shears to cut lavender stems. Make clean cuts just above a set of leaves or buds to encourage new growth and prolong flowering. 

Handling: Handle lavender gently to avoid bruising or damaging the delicate flowers. Hold the stems near the base when cutting or arranging them. 

Watering: Lavender prefers dry conditions, so avoid over-watering. If you're using lavender in a vase, place the stems in shallow water to keep them hydrated without saturating the stems.

Temperature and Light: Keep cut lavender in a cool location away from direct sunlight and drafts. Ideal storage temperature is around 65-70°F (18-21°C). 

Pruning: Regularly prune spent blooms and stems to encourage new growth and prolong the blooming period of your lavender plant. 

Watermelon: While watermelon doesn't contain much iron, it does provide some and is refreshing and hydrating, making it a healthy addition to your diet.
