We all love fresh cut flowers and as we are moving into the holiday season will probably be enjoying them a little more. I recently read in Good Housekeeping that if you put a penny and a pinch of sugar into the vase of fresh water your flowers will be perkier longer. I have in the past heard about the penny, but not the sugar. It must have something to do with the copper/sugar combo.
Enjoy those fresh cut flowers as long as you can. And you get them longer for only a penny!
