Now you can bring the success of your garden indoors with these tried and true favorites that make exceptional cut flowers. These flowers have long and sturdy stems, a long vase life, and of course, beauty.
All you need is clean, sharp shears, and a vase of cool water. It is best to cut flowers in the a.m. Cut the stems at an angle and immediately place in water. Don't forget to snip off 1/8 inch of stem each day as well as change out the water.
