Make sure this cut is at an angle as this helps the flowers access the water better than if the stems were standing on the bottom of the vase. When cutting the stems never break them off with your hands or flatten them as this will also shorten the flower life. Once this is done all you have to do is tend to your flowers as you would your garden or any living thing for that matter! Regularly top up the vase with clean water. You should make sure the leaves are never covered with water as they will only contaminate the water. The leaves will rot and breed bacteria thus decreasing the longevity of the cut flowers. You should also keep your flowers away from fruit. You cant smell it but fruit gives off ethylene gas which affects the quality of the flowers life.

Unfortunately this myth has taken over the internet and there are few articles that can guide women to help buy valentine gifts for men. There are some rules that apply to men and women alike when it comes to valentines gifts. Rule One: Never ever in a million years give anything that suggests your boyfriend/husband needs improvement. Gifts are supposed make a person feel loved and cherished instead of demoralized. Just as a man should never buy cooking books or make-up for a woman women should avoid gifting gym memberships or even clothes. When it comes to apparel men just dont care as much as women do about clothes. Rule Two: Personal preferences will always help you pick a real winner. Everyone loves knowing that there is a special someone out there who actually truly and profoundly understands them.
