    Great tip on that siren !!! That’s a must have!

  3. Great tips! I have a vintage train case full of similar items. I was just thinking I should replace it after 15 years of use and had my eye on canvas bag too. The only thing I would suggest is keeping business cards and a first aid kit in your work bag.

    The care & handling info in this video should be corrected. Instead of Alum, Smithers Oasis has products such as Quick Dip, and various after harvest products specifically formulated to extend flower life. Finish Spray or Crowning Glory is also better than a water spray.
    Crushing stems may work for Kaylee for event work, but for long life, crushing stems is not recommended. Also, think about using current cleaning product DCD wipes to keep those pruners clean.
