Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: If you're like me, you love bringing fresh cut flowers in the house. Here is a little trick I learned a few years ago at a flower arranging class. To give cut flowers more pep, add some lemon lime soda to the vase. The small amount of citric acid will lower the pH of the water, making it easier for the stems to absorb. As an added bonus, the sugar will give the blooms a boost!
