Sunflower Care Tips
Sometimes you will get sunflowers still in buds. These steps will help your flowers open up and bloom for several days, adding brightness and beauty to your home!
- Fill a clean vase ¾ full with fresh, cool tap water and flower food.
- Remove bottom leaves, if there are any. While holding the stems under running water, cut one inch off of the ends and immediately place into your prepared vase.
- On Day 3, recut the stems and change out the water. This will help keep your flowers looking fresh and last longer.
- Keep flowers away from direct sunlight and excessive heat or cold.
