Revive Drooping Flowers With a Safety Pin

Flowers can really brighten up a room. That is, until they start wilting and dropping, and then they look a little sad. Revive sad, drooping flowers with a baby pin.

Gardening Nirvana says it's a trick that doesn't work 100 per cent of the time, but it's often effective, so it's worth a shot. They write:

Simply insert a pin or needle all the way through the stem of the drooping flowers, about one-inch (2.54cm) below the bloom. Within an hour or two, your flowers will be standing tall. I've used this trick successfully over the years with Gerbera daisies, roses and tulips.

The holes are supposed to allow the plant to release air, promoting water circulation. It's easy enough to try for yourself next time you notice your flowers starting to limp. Check out the full post at the link below.
