Super simple DIY hack for flowers. Love the peonies in your garden - but hate their short blooming season? This simple trick will have your peonies blooming all summer long. Such a great idea.

Before your peonies bloom – when the buds are still tight and hard – cut them, wrap the stems in plastic wrap and place them in your refrigerator on their sides.

When you’re ready to have a blossoming peony, remove the bud from the fridge, remove the plastic wrap from the stem, and place it in a vase with room temperature water.
