"Buying Fresh Flowers. Buy from a busy, bustly (sic) shop that have a high flower turnover (it's the old adage, never go into an empty restaurant). Alternatively, special order your flowers to ensure you get exactly what you want and when. Supermarkets carry a basic range of flowers and some do good seasonal specials, so for things like daffodils you can't go wrong. When trying to get the longest life from cut flowers, ask your florist the following questions: 'when did these come in?' and 'how long will they last?' There are obviously no guarantees but most flowers will last between five and seven days."
