Many florists and consumers still believe in old myths such as burning, bashing or boiling stems and adding aspirin to vase water. Scientific trials now show that such methods rarely help and some are actually damaging. Caring for Cut Flowers shows florists and growers how to make cut flowers last longer. While proper postharvest techniques will not magically transform poor quality flowers into first class material, a few basic, inexpensive techniques can maximise the vase life of good quality material. Rod Jones outlines in simple terms what to look for when buying and provides specific care instructions on what to do and what to avoid in handling, storing and displaying more than 100 common flowers, including Australian natives.
