Straws for Flower Arranging

With spring right around the corner, we will be cutting flowers and bringing them in for arranging. One thing that always presents a problem is the short stems on some of them. A way to get around that is to insert the stem into a straw, then cut the straw the length you need. To be sure your stem gets water, slit the straw up from the bottom an inch or so and make small V cutouts a time or two along the straw toward the bottom.
