Compost Stems From Flower Arranging

I love fresh flowers and buy carnations every two weeks, carnations last for a very long time. Since I usually get two large sprays from Costco, there are a lot of stems to cut, and to throw away.


While cutting the stems over the kitchen sink, I collect the tips. Then when I am finished, I just scoop the stems in which the flowers came. I am cautious of what I throw in the garbage disposal. Then I can just add the stems to the compost pile or toss them neatly.

This will not win me any prizes, but it sure makes my flower arranging easier!
