Does anyone have a suggestion for keeping cut winterberry stems fresh until holiday time? I have picked a bunch of it, and kept them in water in my garage. They looked ok until 4-5 days later when the berries started to shrivel. I ended up putting them under my bird feeders for the birds to enjoy.
I only pick a little, so as to leave a ton for winter birds who love it. Problem is you have to pick it now, or in December, its all gone! I was thinking of adding some glycerine to the water in the bucket???
I'd welcome anyone's suggestions.
