The Power of Flower Food

A great lesson we learned from visiting Shannon of Euclid Farms is the importance of adding flower food to your cut flowers. Flower food is essentially a make-up of sugar, acid, and bleach. The sugar is the flower food that gives the nutrients to the flowers. Acid helps to maintain the pH level of the water, which helps to stimulate water uptake through the flower stem and bleach is an aid to reduce the amount of bacteria and fungi in the water.

Watch as Shannon walks us through her process.
