- Taking a bucket of water with you is good idea when picking flowers for your home. This will help the flowers that have been cut stay hydrated.
- To increase the vase life of flower it is important to remove the lower leaves, as they can cause fungal growth, which kills the blooms.
- Cutting the stems of your flowers at an angle prevents the end from sitting square on the bottom of the vase, allowing the flower to absorb more water.
