Presented by DeDe Machin, The Emporium at Thanksgiving Point
• Remove foliage from the part of the stems that will be under water in your vase.
• Cut off any white portion of the stem to allow better fluid intake. To prevent the intake of air into the stems, give them a fresh cut under water. Place immediately in a vase filled with water and fresh flower preservative.
• Recut 1 inch from the flower stems every 4-5 days to maintain water uptake.
• To straighten bent tulips, wrap the 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.
