TIPS FOR CRE­AT­ING LONG- LAST­ING FLOWER DIS­PLAYS

Country Sampler's Upstyled Home - - FLOWER MILL -

SMASH

For woody-stemmed blooms, smash the twiggy ends of the sprig with a ball-peen ham­mer.

SNIP

Most blooms need a fresh snip from sharp gar­den shears and an im­me­di­ate plunge into luke­warm wa­ter.

BURN

Milky-stemmed blooms should be seared with a match so the flower can re­tain its nat­u­ral hy­dra­tion.
