Flower arranging tip of the month

Your cut flowers will benefit enormously from the addition of some flower food to your vase. To make your own flower food just combine the following. One litre of tepid water, one teaspoon of vinegar, one teaspoon of bleach, and one level tablespoon of sugar. Stir well to dissolve the sugar and just add your flowers.
