Can I store strawberries in the refrigerator with fresh flowers (corsage)

Hi Asia, I have never come across any information regarding any adverse affects between strawberries and flowers being stored together.

However, I do know that certain other fruits such as apples give off ethylene gas. This can cause browning of the petals in some flowers, and rapid aging.

It might be worth keeping in mind that this can happen and try and isolate them more. It also depends on the quantity of strawberries - a few might be no problem, if you had pounds and pounds of them, then it might be.

Sorry I'm not much help with this, I'm a horticulturist, not a florist!

Best of luck,
