Arranging Bright Tulips: The third
most popular flower in the world, tulips were once the symbol of the Turkish
empire. Shipped in bud form directly from the “land of tulips”
in Holland, your bright colored tulips have traveled a long distance and
may be thirsty upon arrival. Your tulips will continue to grow and change
after being cut, so leave enough room for your bright colored tulips to
grow and move while arranging. Don’t be afraid to cut, as your bouquet
will look good with bright tulips in varying lengths. Tulips have a natural
tendency to bend and lilt, to seek light, so keep this in mind when placing
your tulip bouquet under a direct light source.
Bright Tulip Bouquet Care Tips: Your
bright tulip bouquet has an estimated vase life of 4-6 days. If properly
taken care of your tulip bouquet may last longer. Don’t be afraid
to cut your tulip stems, as your bouquet will look good with bright color
tulips in varying lengths and will also help the tulips drink water better.
After trimming your tulip stems, fill the vase with lukewarm water and
add first packet of floral food. Tulips are heavy drinkers, so make sure
you feed them some fresh water daily. To straighten bent tulips, wrap
the tulip stems tightly in damp newspaper, secure with an elastic band,
and stand in deep, lukewarm water with light directly above them. Leave
for a couple of hours, and bright tulip bouquet will be as good as new.
