Tulips are one of my very favorite flower and it just seems they have such a merry way
of brightening up spaces during these Winter months.
I especially love vibrant red tulips set against a neutral backdrop, and of course, they are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
However, if you are like me, you will have noticed that Tulips have an uncanny way of leaning, drooping, bending and actually becoming quite unbecoming!
I have tied them up, cut them down, leaned them against other flowers, all in an attempt to keep them from drooping.
Yet, they drooped…making me a very unhappy flower girl.
This past week, I found myself craving a bouquet of fresh cut tulips.
Before I purchased these tulips I did a little research on the topic of
caring for fresh cut tulips, and gleaned some tips.
I tried these tips out and they worked!
I have had these tulips for a week and you can see they are standing up straight, seem quite happy and have retained their color.
Here are the 5 tips I used for caring for fresh cut tulips.
5 Tips For Caring For Fresh Cut Tulips
1. Place Tulips in a cool spot out of direct sunlight.
2. Use a narrow and cylinder shaped vase.
3. Give the stems a little room in the vase.
4. Use cold water to fill and refill the vase.
5. Fresh water is a must-freshen every 2-3 days.
Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope that you give these tips a try.
I really think the biggest take away would be, keeping tulips out of direct sunlight.
