Last Monday I cut fresh garden flowers and placed half of them in water and half in a conditioning liquid made with a teaspoon each of vodka and honey. I’m testing the theory that the alcohol will kill bacteria and the honey will feed the flowers.
They’re both still looking quite good, a week since they were cut. I’ve been a little lazy and only topped up their vases with water. Ideally I’d change the water entirely every few days, but life intervened.
In vase A, in just water, a couple of the small red roses have withered.
More updates on how they both fare will be posted soon. 🙂
