Fresh flowers are a nice and easy way to keep your home cheery. But when the flowers begin to wilt, what do you do with them? Whether you grew them yourself or brought them in from the store, all flowers are fully compostable. But one thing isn’t: The water used in the vase. That little packet of flower feed that came with your store-bought flowers is actually a biocide that kills bacteria in water, and that chemical can kill the good bacteria in your compost. It’s best to pour that water mixture down the drain.
