BANGKAPOS.COM – Tulips are one of the flowers that are often used as cut flowers to add nuance and color to the room of the house.
Although associated with spring flowers, tulips are often found year-round in flower shops.
Unfortunately, tulips tend to droop more easily in a vase than other flowers like roses.
Usually, to keep cut flowers fresh, people add a little bleach to the water in the flower vase.
However, this method is actually not very effective, especially for tulips. So, what is the most effective way?
Reporting from the Better Homes and Gardens page, Tuesday (17/8/2021), here’s how to keep tulips fresh and not drooping in a vase.
1. Use flower preservative
Many flower shop-bought bouquets provide small packets of flower food or flower preservative to mix into the water.
However, if you cut the tulips from your own garden, you can purchase flower preservatives online or at a garden center.
Follow the instructions on the package and the flowers will last longer than flowers stored in plain water.
2. Pay attention to the flower pair
Sometimes, tulips are often combined with other flowers in a vase to give a colorful appearance and enhance the look.
