Decorating with flowers isn't hard to do but there are a few little tips that will help your flowers stay nice a little longer.
- Try to pick your flowers in the morning or anytime on a rainy day when they have plenty of moisture in their system.
- Cut the flowers off and put them directly in water.
- If you do pick a bunch and then bring them in and then put them in water by sure to cut their ends off again before putting them in water. The stems will clog up and not suck up water so cutting their ends helps them to be able to suck up the water. This is very important. You also should re-cut the stems every couple of days.
- Flowers like clean water. Try to change the water every couple of days.
Do you often have fresh flowers at your place - at least during the summer? It is a really fun activity to do with your kids - go collect some wild flowers from the ditches and decorate your house!
