Tip: Make your flowers stay fresh longer!

Can you guess how old these flowers are?

Four days. Yep, four days. And, will last probably for another three days going by last two weeks’ experience. Want to know the trick? The resident florist (read: the husband) buys me fresh flowers every week, or let’s just say there are always fragrant rajnigandhas and these colorful beauties in the home.

I used to add just a dash of sugar to keep them fresh and they would stay for about three days, after cutting the stem in running water by an inch every other day.  A few days ago, I added lil vinegar and salt to the water, and voila, they have stayed through the week.

Try it out and tell me if it works for you!
