Don't throw those flowers away!

Freshly delivered. 

It is always so sad when people throw out their flowers when some of them start wilting. Invest in several small vases and you can usually extend your flowers for a week or so. Pull your arrangement apart and throw away anything that is obviously dead. Separate the different types of flowers so that they die around the same time. Roses that are droopy still have a while left before they start to brown. Cut them with only a 3 or 4 inch stem and arrange them in a small vase. The nature of the small cluster will support the heads and you will get to enjoy the pretty "blown" phase of the rose. Now you can enjoy your flowers all throughout your house.
