How to Help Your Flowers Live Longer: Add a Little TLC

I don’t know about you, but the roses sitting on my kitchen table from Valentine’s Day are long past looking mighty glum. I’ve basically accepted that any time I get or receive (boy do I love receiving) cut flowers, they’re not going to spruce up my home for longer than a week or two, at the very most. Sure, if you get them wrapped from a store or florist, they’ll probably come with that little packet of “flower food,” but what good is that actually doing? Though flowers will always eventually wilt -- just think of it as an excuse to go out and buy more! -- there are a few things you can do to keep them fresh juuust a little longer.
