How to pick daffodils

This is how we pick daffodils

**We recommend bringing your own small bucket with water to keep your flowers hydrated on the ride home. The bucket can stay in the car.

NOTE: Tulips and daffodils should not be placed in the same vase.  The life of your tulips will be greatly reduced if they are put in the same vase together. They can co-mingle after they have been in separate vases for at least 24 hours. 

1. We provide you with scissors and a bucket or picking basket to carry your flowers. If you want to keep your bucket you can purchase it at the checkout, picking baskets are not for sale.

8. Trim 1/4 inch off of the ends when you get home and place the flowers in cool water.  No flower preservative is needed for flowers this fresh, just change the water every 3 days or so and keep the flowers away from direct sunlight and heat. Quick Tip: The cooler you keep your flowers, the longer they will last.
