When properly cared for, cut flowers will stay fresh in a vase of water for seven to ten days.

  • For long-lasting bouquets find bunches that have several unopened buds. When you get home recut 1/4 inch from the stems at a diagonal with SHARP scissors or a knife.

  • Fill the vase with about 3 - 4 inches of lukewarm water, not ice cold, which is taken up better by the stems.

  • Use flower food - but not on tulips.

  • Every couple days change the water and trim the stems a half inch or so - note: tulip stems will continue to grow in length after being cut other flowers will not.

Caring for Cut Flowers

Flowers are an easy way to cheer up your home, but there are also things about them that are worthwhile knowing.

  • Certain flowers can be toxic to our fuzzy friends such as lilies, tulips and daffodils- keep these away from your pets.

  • Don’t mix other cut flowers with daffodils. Daffodils exude a sap that clogs the water uptake of other flowers.

  • Some flowers such as tulips are phototropic, bending towards the light, so rotate containers daily to keep stems more upright.

  • Keep your flowers out of direct sunlight to extend their life.
