Putting a copper penny in the vase also helps flowers last longer. (I never use those packets of "flower preservative" anymore)

I'd like to see an article on more complex, professional-type flower arrangements in various containers...particularly contemporary arrangements. Those are the kind I prefer to create on my own.
