Next make sure you use cut flower food. The flowers will last longer if you use cut flower food but make sure you the read directions and use the correct amount.
Whats the best way for a man to make a lasting impression on a woman? Research shows that the answer to making a memorable impact is right under his nose -- with flowers. Ninety-two percent of women can remember the last time they received flowers and 89% agree that receiving flowers makes them feel special. "If the way to a mans heart is through his stomach then the pathway to a womans heart is through her other senses" says Rebecca Cole of Discovery Channels Surprise By Design. "Flowers are a sensual gift that can express any emotion so simply - with just a little knowledge and a phone call to your florist."
