Typically, we’re like a broken record, always suggesting that you trim any and all flower stems upon arrival. Today we’re making Farmgirl Care history. The white area at the base of hyacinth stems actually allows for the flower to drink up water and hydrate, so put the clippers down for these blooms unless a vase was shipped along with your arrangement. In that case, you’ll want to measure the stems against the vase leaving an inch between the vase lip and base of the flowers, then snip off the difference. This will ensure that your stems are proportional to the height to the vase.
No Chop Necessary!
Your flowers traveled a long way to get to you! After their adventure, they're definitely feeling a little thirsty - give 'em a drink stat!! Fill a vase with cool tap water and they'll lap it up!
Pro Tip: change the water daily (or as often as you can possibly remember!) and remove individual flowers as they expire. This helps reduce the growth of bacteria which can cause your beautiful blooms to fade faster.
Help your flowers live their best life and keep them out of direct sunlight and extreme heat. Unlike in the field, cut flowers don't love sunshine or heat - in fact, both can dramatically shorten their lifespan in the vase. Remember: that sunny windowsill is off limits!
