Terri O shares tips to help your flowers last longer

If you are lucky enough to get flowers for Mother’s Day I have a few tips to keep your investment last longer:

1. Put fresh water in right away
2. Dissolve the food in water completely before putting flowers in
3. Remove any leaves -- they bring bacteria
4. Add a little vodka to the water -- some also say a penny?

Trimming flowers
1. For woody stems split the stem from the bottom
2. For roses remove thorns and snip the bottom at an angle every other day
3. For carnations trim above the node
