Flower Tips

“As a rule of thumb, the longer the stem, the fatter the head of the rose. So when you pay more for a long stemmed rose do not be afraid to cut it down if you want to. You are not wasting money by discarding the stem, your money has also been spent on the larger bloom”

“If we have more tulips than we need in our delivery from the market we store them at the back of the shop out of water for later. They do not mind this in the least. It also means it is a good flower to take to someone if you know they have to be out of the water for a while. If you don’t want your tulips to get droopy, which they can do as they grow so fast in water, prick their stems with a pin just under the head and they will keep standing upright”
