    Did you know the best way to trim a very tender stem (for example geranium cuttings) is a razor blade? When using scissors or a knife you may squeeze the stem and damage the very tender tissue.

    If you must use scissors, use a very sharp pair.

    Picking flowers for a bouquet.
    When cutting flowers for a bouquet, cut the flower and put it immediately into water. Then put the flowers into a big bowl of water, trimming the bottoms of the stems again under water.  You should leave the flowers in this bowl for 20 to 30 minutes. This takes a little extra time, but the flowers last so much longer. REALLY !!!!!!
