How To Make Cut Flowers Last.
I love flowers, well you would as a florist wouldn't you! But they don't have a long shelf life when they are cut. So here are some tips to keeping them fresher longer.
2. Remove all leaves below the waterline. Wet leaves very quickly begin to rot and can contaminate the water and smell horrid. In fact if you remove most of the leaves it will help your flowers last longer as the water is going up to the flower head and not into the leaf.
5. Change the water frequently, daily if possible. Flowers like clean water!

7. Placing a drop of bleach or 2tsp of sugar and 2 tsp of white vinegar or the food packet that comes with your flowers helps to extend their bloom time.
