Thanks for posting this. My wife loves fresh flowers and this is a good way to keep them around for a few extra days.

I used these on Daffodils too, and they were brilliant~ and stayed much longer then without. I will always use this now, as I love cut flowers around and this just makes life so much nicer. I doubled the recipe for a couple of vases and I was very, very pleased with the results~ Thank you Rita for another winning recipe!

I used this for some daffodils and it worked nicely. I'm not sure exactly how much longer these lasted than they would have without, but my flowers lasted about 5 days. Thanks Rita!
