Daffodil Care: Enhance the Beauty of Your Bouquets 

Daffodils, those quintessential harbingers of spring, infuse any space with a burst of sunshine and cheer. Whether adorning your table in a vase or brightening a garden border, their beauty is undeniable. Here's a guide from KS Flowers for maximising the lifespan of your daffodils, so their joyful presence graces your home for as long as possible. 

Choosing the Freshest Daffodils 

Selecting the best daffodils is the first step in your care journey. Look for:
  • Tight Buds: Choose daffodils with firm, mostly closed buds just starting to show their vibrant yellow or white colour.
  • Sturdy Stems: Opt for blooms with strong stems that stand upright, ensuring your daffodils will remain perky and prevent drooping.
  • Vibrant Foliage: Healthy daffodils boast long, green leaves free from yellowing or wilting.
Pro Tip: Trust a seasoned florist like those at KS Flowers for the freshest daffodils, professionally handled to ensure optimal quality.

Daffodil Care at Home 

  • Clean Vase: Prevent bacteria growth by thoroughly washing your vase with warm, soapy water.
  • Fresh Cut: Give the stems a diagonal trim, removing about an inch off the bottom to help them drink freely.
  • Proper Hydration: Fill your vase with cool, clean water.
  • Flower Food: Treat your daffodils to flower food, extending their vase life and providing nourishment.
  • Ideal Placement: Choose a location out of direct sunlight, avoiding drafts and heat sources. Daffodils flourish in a cooler spot.
Special Note: Unlike other flowers, it's best to arrange daffodils solo. Their sap can negatively impact other blooms in a mixed bouquet.

Additional Tips for Daffodils 

  • Regular Water Changes: Replace the water in your vase every few days to maintain freshness.
  • Retrim Stems: Occasionally re-cut the stems at a slight angle to optimise water intake.
