  • Kay MandoPut a teaspoon of sugar and a teaspoon of bleach “yes bleach” in the vase, this will help them last, the sugar feeds and the bleach stops the bacteria growing which poisons them, you can do it to all cut flowers.
  • Mandy Lodomez – And keep away from fruit bowls! Ripening fruit gives off a gas that kills cut flowers !!
  • Jo DevereuxUse lemonade/cream soda instead of water.
