A teaspoon of bleach and a teaspoon of sugar in one litre of water works well.

Teaspoon of sugar on case of water for roses after gently crushing the bottoms of the stems. Also if you pierce under the head of a tulip flower with a sewing needle, thru the stalk at the top this will stop the flower drooping as tulips are prone to do. When they fade and die off, the petals stay upright.
