How to make tulips last as long as possible: tips
Tulips are considered a symbol of spring, which is why they are so often given for spring holidays, including March 8. So the next day the question of how to preserve the bouquet of tulips as long as possible becomes relevant.
OBOZREVATEL tells you about a few best practices. They will help to prolong the life of delicate flowers.
How to choose high-quality tulips
A quality bouquet of fresh flowers will last the longest, so it is important to choose the plants carefully. If the flowers are pulled down by a rubber band, then the tulips are no longer fresh and they will not stand. Leaves and stems of quality flowers should be bright, resilient and without defects.
How to prepare a bouquet to make it stand for a long time
Tulips should not be wrapped in film or other packaging material, except maybe kraft paper. This can create an unfavorable microclimate for the stems. Plain tape should suffice.
After you bring the bouquet home, let it sit for about 30 minutes and adjust to room temperature. Only after that can it be put in water.
To get water well into the flower stems, freshen up the cut of the flowers. With a sharp knife or scissors, cut off the tips at an angle of about 45 degrees. Also remove excess leaves, which can cause the plants to rot prematurely.
Tulips feel best in a tall vase that supports their stems well. The vase should be washed thoroughly before putting the flowers in it, and make sure the detergent is completely rinsed away.
Where is the best place to put the bouquet
Cut tulips do not like direct sunlight. So it's best to put the bouquet in a shady place.
Also, the flowers do not belong near heaters.
