Tip of the day—Don’t waste those flowers

A couple of days ago, I posted a tip about mulching your garden, and a great reader left this info:

Just an idea for next year wherever your loved ones, children, grandchildren buy flowers for you on Mother's Day, have the store rep in charge of the flowers cut the flower stems at the store so the store can recycle the excess with the mulch given to the mulch groups, the stems I cut off my mom's tulips just went into the trash, having the store rep in charge of the floral department, like Kroger can help a mulch businesses with the excess stems and leaves!

What a wonderful tip!  I had never thought of doing this before!  I’m hoping that the reader will let me know his or her first name so that I can give credit where credit is due, but if not, please know how much I appreciate your comment and fantastic tip!
