- Don’t let your plants go thirsty! Keep your vase filled with water and the food provided with your arrangement.
- Nobody likes drinking dirty water. Especially flowers. Replace cloudy or murky water with new, properly-mixed flower food solution.
- Once you find a vase, re-cut the stems by removing one or two inches from the bottom with a sharp knife or scissors, then immediately place them into the food solution. Don’t have a vase? A juice jug works in a pinch.
- Try and keep flowers in a cool spot away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or on top of TVs or radiators—most flowers will last longer under cooler conditions.
A long weekend is always a great excuse to get outdoors and spoil yourself and your family.
You’re probably overwatering your outdoor plants.
As the door opens, there’s a whoosh of warm air. Blasting through the doorway is a beam of humid air, pungent with the scent of flowers.
