Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received.
Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling.

How to Extend the Life of Freshly Cut Flowers

November 25, 2015 9:11 am

Whether you treat yourself to a bouquet of roses or receive one from that special someone, you likely want to keep your fresh flowers fresh for as long as possible. Simply putting them in a vase of water isn’t enough to keep your flowers from wilting and dying, but these smart tips will show you how to make them really last!

  1. Add warm water to a vase.
  2. Mix two tablespoons of sugar to the water to open the flowers’ blooms, and then add two tablespoons of white vinegar to maintain freshness.
  3. Pick off all of the low-hanging leaves from your flowers before putting them in the vase. If the leaves are submerged in water, they can start to rot.
  4. While the flowers are under water, cut their stems at an angle to create more surface area for water absorption.
  5. Arrange the flowers so that they are evenly spaced and none are crowded in the center.
  6. Place the vase in a shaded area in your home, preferable out of the path of direct sunlight. This will prevent them from getting scorched by the sun.
  7. Every day, replace the water with fresh, warm water and re-cut the flowers’ stems to enhance their absorption and keep them looking fresh.
