How long will a bloom last refrigerated? What is the best way to store it, lying down, standing up?

    Carla, I think they store best upright in a vase, coke bottle, or test tube of water in a non frost-free fridge. If it is not frost-free I’ve heard of strategies such as sealing blooms dry in a bread wrapper or placing wet towels under them (to provide moisture). Two weeks when stored in water in a non frost-free fridge is reasonable. I’ve not tried many of the other options, so hopefully others will respond. I’ve heard of dry storage in a bread bag, then cutting the blooms and putting in water to rehydrate them.
