Tips on taking care of Valentines flowers

"Valentine's is a day of love. You want something to last"

Buy fresh, quality blooms, and consider their vase life. Tulips, given proper care, will look good for about five days. Roses and lilies will last a week. Mums and carnations, however, linger on.

Be good to your flowers:

â?¢ Fill a clean vase with tepid water. Add a packet of commercial flower food to feed the blooms and discourage bacterial buildup. Or add a pinch of sugar and a few drops of bleach.

â?¢ Remove foliage that would be underwater; this also discourages bacteria. (To avoid stains, carefully remove pollen-covered lily stamens).

â?¢ Recut stems at an angle to ensure water uptake. Immediately place them in the vase.

â?¢ Display your flowers in a cool spot. Avoid direct sunlight and heating or cooling vents, a killer for tulips.

â?¢ Add water as needed; change when cloudy.

â?¢ Remove wilting flowers. The ethylene they give off may cause other flowers to wilt. Irises are among the first to go.

And don't be alarmed if tulips snake, bend and continue, perhaps like your love to grow
