Poppies



Many flowers wilt as soon as they are placed in water. Poppies are a good example. So are Hollyhocks. Both varieties will last many days if you first singe their stems over a flame. Count slowly to 10 for Poppies and 20 for Hollyhocks.

If you need to re-cut the stem you must repeat the process.

  2. Hi Classie, The Euphorbia group also benefit from singing their stems over a flame. A candle works or if you have a gas cook top you can "condition" many stems together.
