Cut Flower Food Recipe


Some flowers simply do not like commercial flower food, such as zinnias and sunflowers.  As an alternative, we found a simple homemade solution keeps them happy and fresh.  You most likely have the ingredients floating around at home and it is simple to make!  

You'll need...

A quart of room temperature water

1 teaspoon of sugar

2 teaspoons of lemon juice

1 teaspoon of bleach

Simply add all the ingredients to the water.  Remember, when dealing with bleach always add the bleach to the water, not water to the bleach.  We've omitted the lemon juice many times and still had great results.
