Give your flowers a boost with these surprising tips to make your fresh-cut blooms last even longer. SheSpeaksTV contributer and lifestyle expert, Jill Urban, shares two ways to perk-up flowers using things you might already have on-hand.
Question: Do you have any tips on how to keep fresh-cut flowers last?
I remove any leaves from below the water line, they can tend to turn the water murky and I trim 1/2 an inch off the ends of the flowers at a sharp angle every 2 days and freshen up the water (and add more aspirin each time or the preservative that comes with fresh cut flowers) Trimmed flowers absorb the water better and I have had flowers last up to 2 weeks if you tend to them regularly (which is worth the time when they are so pretty and expensive). I will definitely have to try the vodka trick, I've never heard that one before and roses tend to droop so quickly!
Great reason to have a cocktail, love this!
