Tulip Care Instructions
Keep cool whenever possible.
Split bunches and strip leaves from the lower half of each stem.
Wash any mud and dirt from each stem and be careful not to bash or split the stems.
Trim at least 2cm off each stem and place in cold water immediately as otherwise the stems quickly seal themselves.
Tulips do not need preservative, and a good tip is to add a teaspoon of bleach per half filled bucket instead.
Don’t display tulips with fresh daffodils – if you want to mix them in an arrangement follow our daffodil care tips.
Replace the vase water every day.
Tulip stems continue to grow in water and curve towards the light. They grow about an inch daily and this can result in twisted stems. To straighten, wrap the bunches in clean paper (not newspaper) and place in deep cold water for several hours.
