There are lot's of tricks for making fresh cut flowers last longer, but here are few that you may have lying around the house already...
In order from best to worst:
1. Fridge: Put your bouquet in the fridge every night before bed. Flowers thrive in cooler temperatures. It is thought that the low temps help slow the aging. Yes please
2. Soda: Pour ¼ cup of soda in a vase full of fresh flowers. The sugar in soda is said to make your blooms last longer and even smelling sweeter too.
3. Vodka: Add a few drops (of any clear spirit) to your vase of flowers. These spirit’s ability to inhibit ethylene production, a ripening gas that helps plants mature, slows the wilting of the flowers.
The more you know.
4. Coins: Add a copper penny to your fresh bouquet. The copper should act as an acidifier, fighting the bacteria growth in your arrangement. It may also help your flowers to open up quickly. Finally, a use for our pennies!
