Silica gel is an effective medium for preserving floral arrangements. A plastic container is filled approximately halfway full with the gel.

    What are some tips for making your own flower arrangements?

    A:

    When making a flower arrangement with delicate flowers, use branches to support the flower stems. To help branches with leaves last longer, cut a 2-inch slit in the bottom center of the branch. Use a Lazy Susan to arrange flowers, turning the bouquet as needed to add flowers to each side. To ensure roses last longer, wrap them in brown paper, and place them in 1 inch of boiling water. Allow the water to cool before arranging the roses.
