Flowers looking tired? How to extend their vase life - New Haven Register
Lisa Mason Ziegler, a cut flower grower and operator of The Gardener's Workshop, an online flower farming school near Newport News, Virginia. "Dahlias and sweet peas are more like five days. They have a shorter life but look fabulous."
When selecting cut flowers, keep in mind that iris, tulips, snapdragons and daffodils have an extremely short vase life — less than a week. Orchids, carnations and chrysanthemums usually last two weeks or more.
A clean vase is important, Ziegler said. "Put it in a dishwasher to remove any bacteria. Then cut 1 to 2 inches off each stem before putting them into the vase. They're probably clogged but cutting will open them up and they'll be able to feed again," she says.
Conditioning needs vary, said John Dole, an associate dean and floriculture specialist at North Carolina State University. Some varieties require more managing than others, but all cut flowers should be fed.
"Use the flower food packets that most likely came with the bouquet," Dole said. "Mix according to directions and position the flowers into the vase. After they've had their first big drink, take them out, put in fresh water and cut the stems again.
"By doing that your flowers will last longer and the sugars in the flower food will enhance their colors — particularly the purples," he said.

Arlene's Flowers v. Washington - Cato Institute
Yet the U.S. Supreme Court precedent against compelled speech is strong. In West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette (1943), the Court ruled that school children could not be forced salute the flag and recite the pledge of allegiance. And in Wooley v. Maynard (1977), the Court found that New Hampshire could not require drivers to display the state motto (“live free or die”) on their license plates. (That case is why, if your jurisdiction has a default slogan—for example, “taxation without representation” in D.C.—it has to offer you an alternative if you ask.) In a pair of 2018 cases, NIFLA v. Becerra, and Janus v. AFSCME, the Court found that states could not force a pro-life clinic to read a script advising patients on how to get an abortion, and that non-union members of a collective bargaining unit could not be forced to pay for union speech with which they disagree, respectively.
The Court had the opportunity to tackle the issue of whether states may force wedding vendors to create cakes for same-sex weddings in Masterpiece. But the Court didn’t reach the issue of whether the First Amendment—speech or religion clauses—protects a refusal to provide a product or service for a particular occasion, if so how to draw the line between professions that are and aren’t sufficiently expressive to gain that protection, or any other major controversy that continues to roil lower courts. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote a concurrence offering some guidance, but post-Masterpiece state and circuit courts have diverged.
As it has in previous stages of this litigation, Cato has filed an amicus brief supporting Arlene’s Flowers—again joined by Reason Foundation and Individual Rights Foundation—urging the Supreme Court to take up the case and settle these issues and ambiguities after all. Cato is the only organization in the country to have filed briefs in support of both Jim Obergefell (lead plaintiff in the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage case) and Jack Phillips (owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop). It shouldn’t be so hard to see the difference between government action and individual conscience, to have official equality while letting a thousand flowers bloom.

He became chief of the department in 1971. He was an avid outdoorsman and purchased the family's vacation home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia before eventually moving there in 1980.

October Companion Plants and the Soil They Love - Prescott eNews
I think they are the best plants for October colors in our area. From the tree down to bottom of the grouping, you see Prescott Blaze Maple, Red Wall Virginia Creeper, Compact Burning Bush, Fox Red Sedge, mums, and kale. Each is coming into its autumn colors right now.
Autumn is the season of transition from summer gardens to winter-blooming flowers, and the planting of vegetables harvested through the end of the year. However, if you are a gardener whose summer efforts have failed to meet the expectations you had for your garden, you may not want to consider extending your sad summer run! But, take heart...
If your gardens have struggled, their soils probably are the culprits.
The ideal garden soil has the right texture, composition, drainage, acidity, and mineral density. Determine any faults of your gardens' soils, correct those faults, and any plants in the proper soil will want to grow heartily, no matter the season. Get this balance of desirable traits even close to ideal, and your gardening successes will increase noticeably. Guaranteed!
Here are four easy DIY tests for the average homeowner to make a garden's soil assessment:
Soil is classified as clay, sandy, or loamy. Clay is nutrient-rich, but slow draining. Sand is quick draining but has trouble retaining nutrients and moisture. Loam is considered the ideal soil because it retains moisture and nutrients but isn't soggy.
Squeeze Test - One of the most fundamental characteristics of soil is its composition.
To determine your soil type, take a handful of moist soil from your garden, and give it a firm squeez... Sep 19, 2019
