Flower Food

Posted by Muriel Hedgcock

To enjoy the beautiful flowers you have just received make your own flower food to make them last longer


2 liters clean water
1 desertspoon sugar ( this is the food)
1 tsp vinegar ( lowers pH or acidifies the water)
1 tsp bleach ( kills bacteria & mold)

When receiving a bunch of flowers always make a cut on a slant, as it exposes more stem surface area. Also, remove leaves that will be under water in the arrangement.
When water becomes murky replace with fresh solution.
Some cut flowers come with a little sachet of plant food.
This is a nice recipe to have just in case they do not.
