How to Care for Holiday Greens
Fresh greens add a festive touch to both outdoor and indoor decor! Greens can be placed in planters, on table displays, on mantles - the possibilities are endless! So how do you keep greens looking fresh and vibrant for the whole season?
KEEP THEM AWAY FROM HOT, DRY AIR
The worst thing for fresh greens is hot, dry air. For outdoor decorating with greens, this usually isn't a problem. Typical winter weather will keep the greens wet and cold. For indoor greens, it's all about location. Avoid placing them near air vents, radiators, etc.
A small mist bottle with cool water will help them stay fresh much longer. Even if your greens are in an ideal indoor location, misting every so often will help prevent needle drop.
REFRIGERATE IF NECESSARY
If you are concerned about greens being at their best for a special event or date, keep them refrigerated until ready to use.
