Plant Care Tips

hydrangea gardenTaking good care of your new plants is a very important step to keeping and maintaining your plants life. These simple steps will assist you in keeping your house and garden lavishly green throughout the year!

  • Keep plants in medium-light locations – out of direct sunlight.
  • Natural light is best, but some plants can also thrive in office fluorescent light. Most flowering potted plants should be placed in areas with the most light in order to maintain good flower color and promote the maximum number of flowers to open. Foliage plants will do well under lower light levels and can be placed in areas providing reduced light.
  • Plant soil should be kept moist at all times, not drenched but damp to touch.
  • Plants should not be allowed to dry out or wilt. Be careful to avoid overwatering – do not allow plants to stand in water.
  • Avoid wetting plant leaves, this can cause a bacteria and spread to other leaves.
  • Avoid excessive heat or cold.
  • Plants should be kept in a cool spot (between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) for best performance. They should be kept away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or next to televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, which causes plants to dehydrate.)

Try these tips out, your plants will appreciate them

How to stop Tulips from Drooping

Tulip Plant1Tulips are well known for drooping once cut and put into a vase. You can try to avoid this by following a few of these steps. First make sure your Tulips are well hydrated and have the proper nutrients (grab a complimentary packet of our flower food when you stop into our market). You want to try to put your Tulips in a long slender vase to act as a brace to hold them straighter without drooping over the top. Re-cut the stems at an angle with a sharp knife or professional cutting sheers, try to cut the stems about an inch from the bottom while cutting under water. Remove all extra foliage and leaves that will be submerged in the water. You want to remove the excess foliage because those leaves will create bacteria in the vase and kill your fresh cut stems quicker. A trick to training the stems to stand straight is wrapping them gently with a plastic wrap exposing the stems so they can drink the water in the vase. Keep the arrangement like this for about 5 hours or overnight. This will allow the Tulips to absorb water into the stems and keep the shape of the plastic wrap sleeve. Always be sure to keep your Tulips out of direct sunlight, as they tend to follow light sources. Hydrate them frequently because dehydrated Tulips droop quicker…Even give them a fresh trip after a few days to make sure that water uptake is not being slowed by dulled stems with bacteria growth.

Here’s a tip to try! Add a penny dated prior to 1981 to the water. The copper found in the penny may help the Tulips stand up in the vase!

Tips for Caring for your Cut Tulips

Tulip GardenTulips are a beautiful Spring garden flower that many like to bring into their homes to show off their beauty. However it seems the beauty of these flowers never lasts as long as desired after being freshly cut. Here are some quick tips to keep your fresh cut Tulips lasting a little longer than there guaranteed freshness date.
Remove any leaves from the stem that would be under water once the tulip is placed in a vase.

Cut the stem about an inch from the bottom to prevent air from entering it and drying it out. If the bottom of the stem is in air too long it will dry up and prevent water and flower food from entering through the stem for nutrition.

Cut the stem when under water so that no air enters the stem and prevents water intake.
Always make angled cuts when cutting the stems of tulips.

Use very sharp shears or a sharp knife when cutting the stems of Tulips. Tulips stems aren’t as thick and strong as others so the outer skin can fray if you cut with a dull knife.

Caring for Tulips in a vase

Every two days cut about one half inch from the bottom of the stem to continue water intake.

Check the level of water frequently and add more as needed to top it off.

Always keep the vase clean with fresh water. Water should never stay foggy or cloudy.

Add a floral nutrient or preservative from a florist to the water.

Set the vase in a cool place away from direct sun, heating vents and drafty areas.

Tip!

Because tulips continue to grow even after being cut, they often bend to conform to their container. If desired, straighten the tulips by securing them in damp newspaper and placing them in lukewarm water for a few hours.
