It’s the season again with spring flowers just around the corner. We always look forward to the many types of flowers that
become available in the floral industry and tulips are defiantly one of the well know flowers that are in their peak. Here
are some tips for prolonging the life of your florist delivered tulip arrangements.
Place your tulip arrangements in a cool area in your home or office and keep them away from any types of heat sources.
The tulip stems will also continue to grow once placed in water. They will often begin to curve and grow towards any light
Fresh tulips should arrive in your flower arrangement standing straight up however there are times that they will bend
down. This is a normal reaction perhaps from being in the florist cooler and reacting to the sudden change in
temperature. All they need is a little light, some time and they will stand straight up on their own.
Keeping your tulips in fresh clean water and making sure the water line is covering the end of the stems will also help
prolong the life of your tulips.
Don’t forget to check your water level daily.
Even though this flower is available most of the year. The springtime is the best time to enjoy the many types that are
available. Just give your local florist a call and let them introduce you to a taste of what spring has to offer.
