Remember the trick I taught you here. Well here are some sure fire ways to make your fresh flowers last. First, did you know that roses have something called guard petals? If you aren't sure what they are they are the outer petals that tend to turn brown or wilt quickly. You know what I am talking about, sometimes the flower bouquets in the store get passed over because the outer petals are just less than desirable. Who wants to spend their hard earned money on flowers that look dead?
