    I have some shaster daisy ready to pick in the garden - is there a special treatment to help keeping them fresh?

    With dahlia I scrap the stem, dip in boiling water for 30 seconds and then plunge into cold water up to their neck for a couple of hours before using - they then last for at least a week in the vase.
