How to keep cut flowers fresh & make them last
Flowers with long & soft stems tend to droop easily. The drooping posture obstructs water absorption & therefore hasten the withering process. To help the flowers stay upright & fresh, snip open a straw & enclose the straw onto the upper part of the flower stalk. The straw helps to maintain a smooth flow of water supply to the flower & at the same time minimize water evaporation from the stem surface. Suitable for Gerber daisies & tulips.
When putting flowers in a non-watertight container, line the container with a zip-lock bag & fill it with enough water. Zip the bag to keep the flowers in place, when necessary.
