Quick fix for your long stemmed Gerber Daisy
When your daisy stems can no longer withhold the weight of the bud, give them a little support by using the edge of the vase. Simply trim the stems (which also can help extend their life) to where the heads of the flowers just rest on the vase.
They still look great, so this gives me more time to enjoy them! Obviously this tip can work for any flower....not just daisies.
A few other tips to extend fresh flowers life:
- Change the water daily
- Snip the stems under water
- Put a penny in the vase
- Fill the vase with very cold water
I hope your Saturday is going great! I've got to get moving on preparing for our dinner party, but before I go, what's YOUR favorite flower to keep in the house? I need to pick up some bright flowers to accompany my currently monochromatic tablescape. I can't wait to see the table transform with a huge pop of color! (Yes, I'll take pics :) )
