Crush Stems of Woody Cut Flowers

I like to use flowers from my garden and yard to share with our church family to aid in worship at our little country church. In this photo, I used Siberan iris, peony, and mock orange blossoms. The mock orange have woody stems. In order to prepare them to draw more water in the vase, I crush the stems with a hammer. The flowers can last longer that way.
