With summer entertaining already here, I thought it would be good to have some easy tips to keep your cut flowers fresh!
* Cut stems at a 45 degree angle using sharp scissors, shears or knife (if possible cut underwater). * Remove leaves that will be below the water line. * Put flowers in one part lemon-lime soda to three parts water or combine two aspirins, a few drops of bleach and a dash of sugar (per quart of water).
Now go ahead and enjoy those fresh, beautiful blooms!
