Recycle Event Flowers

Remember that flowers can be recycled, too! After an event, many a flower arrangement will end up in the trash! So rescue it, re-cut the flower stems and re-arrange the flowers at home. Why toss them when they still have life in them? With pruning and re-arranging the flowers can often last a week! And having fresh flowers is such a luxury, isn't it?

Also another use. If you have a nursing home in your area, like we do, take the flowers to them. We have done this in the past and they are so appreciative. If it is a big arrangement, you can break it down into smaller ones to be put into rooms of those allowed to have flowers.

And if they're still in good condition, they can be dried, extending their life and usefulness almost indefinitely. I love dried flowers on my Christmas tree!

Cuttings can also be taken from flowers and plants. My mother-in-law grew a cutting from the foliage of my wedding bouquet and I've seen a gardening expert take cuttings from carnations bought at the petrol station.

I know a woman who started rose bushes from her mother's funeral bouquets, as a remembrance.
