There's so much I didn't know about taking care of flowers. Even after putting them in a vase immediately, they still seem to die. Roses might last a couple of days but mine probably needed some flower food. That tip was the best one for me and the other one about trimming the stem.

One of the reasons I rarely ever buy flowers for decorating is bc they wilt so easily and they're so expensive, but this tutorial makes it seem like a great way to make buying flowers worth it.

I had no idea there were so many steps involved in keeping flowers at their freshest. I knew that I should put the food packet in the water, but my favourite tip was that you should gently bash the ends of the stems with a hammer to open up the ends. I usually just cut the tips with sheers, so this is completely different from what I'm used to. I was also surprised that misting flowers with water will help to freshen them. Great tips. I'm going to have to pick up a bouquet and give these tips a try this week.

This is great! I love the recipe for homemade flower food - that's perfect.

Perfect idea to use just before Easter. I hate how quickly flowers wilt.
