Using Cut Tulips and Daffodils
In your flower arrangements, avoid mixing cut tulips with daffodils – at least right away – because daffodils produce a chemical “slime” that injures tulip flowers.
If you want to use these two flowers together in an arrangement here is what you do:
1. Put the cut daffodils in another container of water for a day after cutting
2. Then rinse off the stems
3. Then add them to the vase of tulips
You can also add 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of activated charcoal or 6 drops of bleach to each quart of water to avoid this problem.
By following the above facts, it really is the best way to care for cut tulips and daffodils.
Have great week!
