Flower staying power

Here are some Tightwad tips to help extend the life of your gorgeous bunches of Easter blooms.

1) Combine lukewarm water and a flora food packet. If you don't have flora food, add two teaspoons of fresh lemon or lime juice and one tablespoon of sugar (per quart of water).

2) Fill a vase with your solution within one or two inches of the rim

3) Remove any leaves and foliage that fall under the water line of the vase

4) Trim the stems one-half inch from the bottom at a 45 degree angle

5) Keep your blooms in a cool location and away from direct sunlight, heat or humidity
