Being presented with a beautiful bouquet or picking blooms straight out of your garden is such a treat, and it’s even better when you know some tricks to make cut flowers last longer. Sadly, blooms fade so quickly when they are removed from their roots, but you can make cut flowers last longer if you try some of these helpful hints.
1. Use Soda
A vase of fresh flowers will definitely brighten up a room, but not so when those flowers wither. One of the simplest ways to make cut flowers last longer is to use a mixture of water and soda. Just mix ¼ cup of soda (a clear soda is best – like Sprite) into the water and pour this mixture into the vase. The soda contains sugar that will help cut flowers last longer.
