There's nothing quite like a vase of fresh flowers to lift and refresh the home. But unfortunately, most fresh cut flowers don't last very long. The secret to keeping cut flowers looking good for as long as possible is to minimise the growth of bacteria in the water and to provide nourishment to replace what the flowers would have gotten had they not been cut.
Container Garden: Don't forget to include EDIBLE flowers! (pin links to pdf list of edible flowers via Arizona Cooperative Extension) "In most cases the petals are eaten. Stems, pistils, and stamens (the male and female parts in the center of the blossom) should be removed for best flavor." Please visit my Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/jolly.ollie.77
