Video: How To Save Cut Tulips And Daffodils
Let the bouquet live long
If I bring tulips and daffodils home on Sunday, and I will give them in a few days, then they can be saved without sacrificing beauty. To do this, with a sharp knife, I cut off the bottom of the stem obliquely, put it in a long jar with settled or cold boiled water. I put a plastic bag on the jar and put it in the refrigerator door.
To prevent tulips from opening on the road, I pick flowers early in the morning on the day of departure, put them in cold water, put on a plastic bag on top, tie it and place it in a cold room (for example, in a basement). I take out the bouquet before leaving, wrap a piece of damp cloth on the lower part of the stems, put the bouquet in a plastic bag and tie it. So tulips can be transported over long distances.

In order for the daffodils to stay in the vase longer, it is better to pick them not from the flowers, but in the phase of colored buds. It is necessary to change the water to them several times at intervals of about one hour. Change the water in the vase in the morning and evening. The stems of daffodils secrete mucus, and if it is not removed, the life of the flowers in the vase is reduced. It is also not recommended to put daffodils in a vase together with other flowers.
If you put lilac branches in a vase of cold water, then, after a few hours, they will wither. To prevent this from happening, you need to crush the lower part of the branches with a hammer and put the bouquet in hot water (60 … 70 ° C), dissolving a little sugar in it. As soon as the water cools down, you need to rearrange the bouquet in hot water. After that, the lilac can stand in the vase for a long time.
