Flowers that Last - Preservative Power

Predicament: How to Make Flowers Last Longer

There is something so luxurious and joyful about having fresh flowers in your home. After having my garden flowers peter out in a few days and also discovering that bouquets from the market don't always include flower food I thought I need a solution.  So I decided to buy my own bulk box of flower preservative packets (200!).  

Having this has really stretched my flower budget by making my flowers last much longer.  Sometimes I even give this bulk box to friends as a gift.  I pair it with fresh flowers, a nice by pass pruner or a portrait of a flower.

I recently decided I should test my theory before pronouncing the benefits.  So I did a little stop action video over 12 days.  Check it out.
