GREEN UP YOUR GAFF

STAYING POWER

17th January 2019

Words by Jessica Peace

You might be grabbing an extra posie at the till whilst you’re waiting for your bulbs to spring up. Here’s how to give’em some staying power.


A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR

Just a teaspoon mind, but a sugar hit will give your bloom a boost.

BREAK DRY JANUARY

Apparently, a few drops of vodka in your vase kills any nasties swimming about in the water.

HOT HOT HEAT

Sounds like torture but snip a strong stem like a rose or hydrangea (at a 45 degree angle, natch) and dunk the tip in boiling water (quickly) before plonking it in your vase.
