If you were lucky enough to receive flowers from your loved ones,heres a tip on how to keep those cut flowers last longer. This tip is from Kate Law of Proflowers.com
Fill a vase with lukewarm water and add the included flower food. Cut off stems on an angle with a sharp knife to create more surface area for the water absorption. Place the vase out of direct sunlight in a cool, non drafty spot.
Refresh the water and trim stems 1/2 inch every other day. In place of flower food, fill the vase half water,half lemon lime soda the sugar will feed the blooms while the acidity will keep flower life shortening bacteria at bay.
