Nothing screams JOY more than a vase of spring flowers. That's why it's important to ensure you are getting the most of these varieties.

Spring flowers are grown as bulbs, meaning that caring for them as cut flowers can be a little different to other blooms.

We've rounded up some of the best tips below on keeping your spring flowers as fresh as possible:


Daffodil sap is poisonous to other flowers
It's recommended that you keeps daffodils in a separate vase, as their sap can reduce the vase life of other flowers. If you really want them in an arrangment, we recommend leaving them in their own water overnight to let the sap drain.

Tulips keep growing
After being cut, Tulips still continue to grown around 2cm taller. Keep this in mind when arranging them, perhaps initially placing them lower than the other blooms. It's also good to consider when choosing the right vase height. Tulips tend to grow towards the sun, so be aware of windows.

Don't cut Hyacinths
We are always told you should always recut your flowers before putting them in water, however, Hyacinths are an exception to the rule. Leaving their base plate on allows them to hydrate better and extends their vase life.
