Longer life for picked daf­fodils

Landscape (UK) - - In The Home -

Daf­fodils cut from the gar­den pro­claim spring through­out the home, and their bright­ness is main­tained with sim­ple care. Daf­fodils re­lease a sap-like sub­stance that can be harm­ful to other flow­ers. If they are des­tined for a mixed ar­range­ment, it is best to let them stand in cool, clean wa­ter on their own overnight first. They pre­fer shal­low wa­ter, fill­ing no more than half the vase and cut­ting stems on the di­ag­o­nal will im­prove wa­ter ab­sorp­tion. Adding a tea­spoon of su­gar and a few drops of le­mon juice helps keep the blooms in good con­di­tion.
