Special Care Flowers

Daffodils exude a clear sap that can kill other flowers. Cut these flowers and soak them separately in a vase for one hour before adding them to your arrangements.

Plants with stems that tend to bend, such as tulips, are best bundled together and left to sit for several hours before being placed in an arrangement.
