Few ways to prolong the life of cut flowers from your garden:

  1. Cut the flowers very early in the morning when they have the most moisture and are cool from the night temperatures.
  2. Always have a bucket handy so you can put them immedciately in water. 
  3. Once inside recut the stems under water in the sink. Cut them at a slant, this will help the water intake and flow once they are arranged.

Peonies are now in bloom, the seaon is from May to June.  

* Don't forget to take your flowers to the sink every morning and mist them to maitain humidity and moisture.
