Tulips for Days

We love a fresh batch of tulips for the home but we find they don’t last as long as other flowers. Want to make your tulips last longer in a vase? Here are some of our favourite tips:

  • Ensure the tulips are cut on an angle with a sharp knife not a pair of scissors as the scissors tend to crush the stem of the tulip and does not allow the flower to drink water
  • Place the tulips in fresh lukewarm water, not ice cold
  • If you don’t have a batch of floral preservative (flower food) add one penny per tulip to the bottom of the vase
  • Do not mix tulips with daffodils as the sap from the daffodils will hurt the tulips
  • Check the water level on a daily basis
