Frequently asked questions
Everything you’ve always wanted to know about Christmas Greeneries.
There are a few things that you could do to keep your greenery fresh and in better condition until Christmas. The first thing you can do, of course, is not buying it too early. But once you have it, here’s what you can do to boost the longevity: Before using the branches, cut the stems and put them in a bucket of water overnight. After making the wreath, soak it in water as well. Use a plant mister or sprayer to moisten the arrangement on a regular basis. Avoid heat and direct sunlight as much as possible. A wreath above the fireplace will wither a lot faster than in a hallway that is dark and cool. LED light is also a better match than other lightbulbs because they emit less heat. Consider using dried flowers as a substitute, to ensure that your Christmas Wreath of Piece will stay beautiful for many Christmasses to come!
