Cut flowers never seem to last long, but here are a few tips to help maximize their lifespan.
Who doesn’t love cut flowers? They’re the ideal offset to the sterility of most indoor environments, offering earthy organic reminders of the wider world with their jewel-like beauty, and scenting the air with their natural perfumes. It’s the rare heart that’s not gladdened by the sight and scent of fresh flowers.
The problem is that they’re so temporary, rarely lasting longer than a few days before their petals droop and they start to die. Given their short lifespans — and how much they tend to cost, frankly — it makes sense to find ways to extend the length of time your flowers can stay bright and perky.
