Store-bought chrysanthemums are hardy flowers and can last up to four weeks. Just keep the stems tall and be sure to top up the vase with water every few days.
Okay, so carnations are commonly thought of as a ‘clutch bunch of flowers. But so what? Flowers bloom at the end of the day and these grocery store flowers are inexpensive and last up to three weeks.
Timeless and elegant, lilies make the perfect bouquet. These highly fragrant, long-lasting flowers look fantastic in any arrangement thanks to the neutral color of the petals. The only downside is the pollen that can wreak havoc. Not only can it stain clothes, it is also quite toxic to cats.

Flowers bought at the grocery store don’t get the same treatment as those grown at nurseries or garden centers. Hence they have a short shelf life and wilt quickly.
Where can I find flowers at the grocery store?
Grocery store flowers are usually near fresh produce like fruits and vegetables. Smaller grocery store chains may also place them at the main entrance to catch sunlight and rainwater.
Grocery store flower care
Store-bought flowers are relatively easy to care for and often come with instructions. The stems are usually tied together inside the vase making it easy to move them into the vase.
Instructions often tell you to cut 2cm off each stem and remove any loose leaves before placing them in water. A small bag of food can also be added which should be added to the water.
How to Store Flowers Bought at the Grocery Store
Remember, grocery store flowers are still flowers, and it’s always best to soak them in water if you want them to last as long as possible.
If the purchased flowers are for someone other than you, you can always place them in a sink full of water to keep the stems wet until you are ready to give them to that special someone.
Where do grocery store flowers come from?
Flowers sold in grocery stores can come from many different parts of the world. The flower industry is worth more than $100 billion and a good portion of that comes from the flowers that are sold in grocery stores.
Why are grocery store flowers so cheap?
Prices are very attractive because grocery stores buy flowers in bulk. The store buys them and also pays to package them before selling them to its customers. The more the grocery store buys, the cheaper it buys.
Should I refrigerate flowers?
It depends on the type of flowers that are purchased. Roses, for example, thrive in cool environments and can be refrigerated for long periods of time. However, if flowers are to be admired, why hide them inside the fridge?

To get the most out of a bunch of grocery store flowers, why not separate them in two? This way, you can place them in different parts of the house and save money.

An expensive bouquet of flowers usually consists of two, three, or even four different types of flowers. To make your bouquet you will need to:
- Buy two to three different bunches of flowers from the grocery store.
- Remove the packaging from each bunch and cut 2cm off each stem.
- Arrange the flowers to your liking in a large vase.
You can also organize a large bouquet and divide it into two or three bunches, so you can place them in different parts of the house.
