    I purchased some beautiful cut tulips at the market a couple weeks ago. At check out the cashier asked me if I knew the penny trick for tulips. I didn't.

    She explained that you add one or two pennies to the water in the vase and it will make them last longer and not droop.

    So, I tried this and it really worked! They looked great and stood up straight for an entire week. The water in the vase stayed clear the whole time too.

    So impressed I had to share, as I love tulips! Hope it helps someone else out too.:flower3:

    Not just tulips but all cut flowers.

    I'm happy to hear that it works for all cut flowers. I will definitely do this. I have an abundance of roses to experiment on now from my garden!
    Thanks Ceecee!

    I never knew this. I'm going to try it.
