Give your flowers a little lift

I find it so frustrating when I have a beautiful bunch of flowers that are just screaming to be placed pride of place in a vase, only to find that the stems aren’t long enough … or that the vase is too tall – whatever the reason, it’s pretty annoying!

Instead of resorting to putting my flowers in a short glass (unless it’s quirky) or settling for flowers that can barely see over the edge of the vase 20140729-224251-81771692.jpg…I follow this simple tip my mum taught me that I will forever pass on to my fellow flower lovers!

You know the wrapper that packages the flowers so beautifully? The one that ends up slit down the middle and thrown in the bin?

20140729-230113-82873459.jpgWell hang on to it! Scrunch it up and pop it in the bottom of the vase before you add your food and water.

The wrapping will give the flowers a boost while still allowing them to drink away!

Now all I need is a tip to help me remember to refresh the water regularly and try to keep my flowers alive!

Thanks for reading xxx
