I will kill any houseplant that you put in front of me. Currently, I am in possession of a very sad looking orchid.
I make up for this by having ok vegetable growing skills and being a cut flower aficionado. I know about a million tips for cut flowers. I know how to revive roses, how to de-pollen lilies and which flowers are effectively cat poison (I’m looking at you chrysanthemums…)
The most annoying part of cut flowers is when this happens. When you have a mixed bunch and some crap out really quickly. It’s tempting to throw the whole lot but I like to downsize mine into a little posy which can brighten any corner. First, hike the whole bunch out of the vase and chuck out the dead one.
You might have enough for a little posy but I like raiding my garden for extras. Anything will do, even greenery.
