Thanks to the short transit time and the fact that they’re harvested daily at Rutishauser, the flowers are always top-notch.
Care tips for long-lasting tulips in your vase
Enough water: drooping flower heads indicate a lack of water. This can happen even if the flowers are already in water. To make them straighten again, cut the flower stems at an angle with a sharp knife. This opens the stem, so it can transport the water all the way up to the flower.
The right vase: tulips continue to grow even in the vase, meaning the flower heads get heavier. To keep the flowers stable in the vase, a tall and slender vase is preferable over a short and round one. Ideally, the vase is two thirds the height of the tulips.
Cold water: cut tulips need lots of water. It’s best to give the tulips fresh, cold tap water every day to keep them looking pretty.
