Garden Club Meeting

3 Feb

We were glad to once again host the ladies of the Sequoyah Garden Club. Matt gave a great lesson about the care and handling of fresh flowers once you get them home from the florist. Did you know that if you don’t have any flower food you can put 2 tablespoons of sprite for every quart of water in your vase? You can also use 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice/vinegar to a quart of water. Remember to change the water and re-cut your stems under running water every day. Also, you should cut them at an angle so they don’t sit flat on the bottom of the vase as this prevents them from drinking. The better you take care of your flowers the longer you’ll be able to enjoy them.
