Conditioning Flowers

Let freshly cut flowers stand in a cool place out of direct sunlight in tepid water for several hours -- preferably overnight. Cut all stems at a 45-degree angle, and split woody stemmed branches from flowering trees and shrubs with a 1-inch verticle cut. Add cut flower food to extend bloom time.
