3- Sort through the flowers and pick the most lively and sturdy. Stay away from any blooms that are losing their petals.

4 – Cut flower stems to desired length at a 45 degree angle under water or under running water. Pick up a pair of clippers or shears for best results.

5 – Remove any leaves that will sit below the water line in your vase to prevent excessive bacteria growth.
