Is it teething time for your little one?
A bunch of fresh flowers is a lovely treat, and can add so much colour and beauty to your home.
Follow these five easy tips to get fresh flowers to last for days on end.
1. Put your flowers in water ASAP
Once you trim the stems of your bouquet on a diagonal angle, immediately place the flowers into water.
2. Aspirin
Simply crush up an aspirin and put it into the water before adding in your fresh flowers.
3. Hairspray
Flowers will stand taller if you give them a spritz of hairspray. Try standing about a foot away and spraying the bouquet on the undersides of the petals and leaves.
4. Don't overcrowd your bouquet
You want to make sure that air can circulate between each of the buds. If you use a vase that's too small, the flowers won't be able to breathe and may become bruised.
5. Use a fizzy drink
Pour about a quarter cup of fizzy pop into your water to make your flowers last longer. For aesthetic reasons, choose something on the clearer side like seltzer or Sprite.
