Flowers are special and I’m sure the one who gave it you is special too, if only it can stay fresh forever! You can prolong the life of the fabulous flowers given to you by following these simple tricks.
The first thing you have to do is submerge the stem/s in hot water and clip 2 inches off the ends, at a slant. Follow instructions on the floral preservative packet they came with or just drop one aspirin tablet. Toss some copper coins into the vase [the copper slows down the growth of bacteria]. Place out of sunlight in a cool spot [and move to an even cooler spot overnight]. Retrim stem/s and replace water evry few days.
