Floral Gossip

Shallow water in VASE please – THE FEET soakers!

We are talking about the male cut flowers here.

“Slip on the sneakers & no hairy legs in the vase” my darling blossom’s.

Be sure to cut the stem of your cut flower flush (straight across) and not as we know it on an angle and shallow water please in the vase for the MEN.

All cut flowers that come from bulbs, corms, tubers and rhizomes if you cut them flush and stand them in shallow water they seem to last longer and the stems seem to stay standing straight longer compared to other cut flowers that flop down at mouth of the vase.

The reason why Mr Iris strays from the straight and narrow in your vase is because of the diagonal cut of the stem.

The diagonal cut allows to much water to come into the stem from the side causing Mr Iris to become tipsy, too much drink goes to his head and the effect is clear he struggles to stand straight.

Too much water in the vase can create swelling in the stem opening the door to mushy stems in the making.

Male cut flowers have enough water deposits in their stems like camels have water/fat storage in their humps.

So allow me to introduce you to the gorgeous blooming male cut flowers.
