Every year and on every other day of visiting relatives at the cemetery, the problem is that the flowers quickly wither and fade away. It doesn't look nice and the tombstone is perceived by others as neglected.

There are ways to keep the flowers fresh for much longer. When buying flowers in a pot, it is worth choosing specimens whose buds are not yet developed. This will allow us to buy the flower a little earlier than the day before All Saints' Day.

For cut flower , make sure that the stems are trimmed diagonally and the leaves are above the waterline. It is good to stick a match into the stalk in the place of the cut, and more specifically the sulfur on it, which is a good fungus substance.

By creating a composition of live plants, such as pine, flowers, boxwood or rowan, collected in It is worth wrapping the stalk tuft with a damp cloth to extend the life of the plants. If possible, keep wreaths and reeds cool so that the needles and petals do not fall off.
