PROLONGING VASE-LIFE

  • When you get home put the flowers in a bucket of cool water somewhere dark and cool for between 12 and 24 hours.
  • Before arranging, cut another inch or so off the stems.
  • Add a little bleach or clear vinegar to the vase water.
  • Change the water at least every other day, snipping a little more off the stems.
