What to do if roses are not feeling well ?
Cut their stems (min. 2 cms) with a keen knife. Put them in a great volume of lukewarm water.
2 hours later, place them in their vase again. They should feel better !
What about the tulips ?
Tulips do not need a lot of water (5 to 8 cms max in the vase).
Cut their stems slantwise under water to avoid air bubbles. If you want them to stay straight in the vase, sting horizontally under the flower with a pin and take it back immediately after operation.
If they are too soft, pack them in wet newspaper (use lukewarm water) for 2 hours and them put them back in their vase
As well as buttercups and wind flowers, tulips are still growing after being cut. So don’t be afraid.
