Bouquet of pink flowers

It’s flower arranging 101 to trim the stems when you first go from the paper or plastic wrapping to your vase, but did you know that continuing to trim the stems, even just a little, can help your flowers stay fresher longer?

To keep that bouquet looking its best, change the water every day and trim the stems (especially woody ones like the ones shown above) every three days.

What’s your favorite kind of bloom to have in your home?
