Arranging Tulips in a Vase

Some tips when arranging tulips in a vase at home:

  1. Tulips continue to grow in the vase after they have been cut; so try and choose a vase that covers at least half of the height of the tulip stems.
  2. Wash off any dirt or sand that might be caught in between the leaves and stems of the tulips.
  3. Cut the stems with clean, sharp scissors.
  4. Tulips love water. So fill up your vase with cool, fresh water at least halfway; if possible change the water every other day.
  5. Avoid placing tulips in direct sunlight or near a heat source or else they will wilt faster.
  6. If you find your tulips a little droopy, it could be that they have air bubbles in their stems. Prick a tiny hole just below the flower head with a needle or safety pin so that water can rise up the stem.
  7. Don’t combine tulips with flowers in the Narcissus family such as daffodils and jonquils as they may shorten the lives of the tulips.
