When a florist delivers a gift of beautiful fresh flowers we often place
them in a position of prominence and just leave them until they begin
to wilt when just a little care of cut flowers could help them to maintain
their freshness and extend their life by many days.

remove any leaves that may extend down into the water. Water saturated
leaves will quickly rot and this leads to the production of bacteria.

The extra area of stem end allows for greater water absorbtion. This
trimming may have to be done every couple of days, just look for a discolouration
or slight rotting of the stem.
Another insurance measure to extend the life of flowers is to change
the water in the vase daily, and always add some cut flower food
that can be purchased from most florists.
Also be aware that the care of cut flowers includes them not being
placed in a draught, near heat coming from a room heater or in
sunshine shining through a window, all of which will tend to have
an acceleration of water loss and so develope premature wilting.
In warm weather an occassional spray with water from
a misting nozzle will help to maintain humidity near the flowers
and the small droplets look quite attractive on the petals, particularly
