Caring For Fresh Greens Urns

Winter brings a magical touch to our surroundings, and what better way to capture that enchantment than with fresh greens urns adorning your home? Whether you’ve chosen a welcoming outdoor display or an indoor centrepiece, caring for your urn insert ensures that the vibrant beauty of fresh-cut greens lasts throughout the season.

1. Hydration is the Key:

Just like a well-watered Christmas tree, your urn insert craves hydration. Water it once a week until the soil freezes. For optimal freshness, keep it outdoors in cooler temperatures. However, if you decide to showcase it indoors, ensure it’s well-watered and limit its indoor stay to no more than one week. This applies to all fresh-cut greens that find a temporary home inside, be it centrepieces or fresh-cut trees.

2. The Protective Shield:

To extend the lifespan of your fresh-cut greens, consider giving them a protective shield. A spritz of an anti-transparent, such as ‘Wilt Pruf,’ works wonders in guarding against moisture loss. This simple step helps your greens maintain their lush appearance, even indoors.

3. Beware of the Elements:

While your fresh greens revel in the crisp winter air, it’s essential to be mindful of the elements. Sunlight and rain can impact the colour of ribbons or picks that have been dyed or sprayed, leading to fading or bleeding. Position your urns in a spot where they can bask in the seasonal charm without compromising their decorative elements.

4. Timeless Elegance, Seasonal Joy:

Your fresh greens urns embody timeless elegance and seasonal joy. Whether they grace your doorstep or become a focal point indoors, these verdant arrangements bring nature’s beauty into your home. With a little care and attention, you can savour the allure of fresh-cut greens throughout the winter festivities.

5. Recycle with Care:

Once the holidays are over, consider recycling your greens. Many municipalities offer yard waste recycling programs that turn them into mulch or compost. It’s a sustainable way to bid farewell to your festive friend. And don’t forget to keep your picks for next year!

As you welcome the magic of the season, let your fresh greens urns stand as a testament to the enduring beauty of nature’s winter splendor.
