Droopy tulips!!! -

Just a quick one - I have had some tulips delivered today in a vase but already they are drooping right over. Is there anyway to revive them??

kiss of life :)
Stick a pin in the stems, right under the flower heads. Should perk them right up :)
Try cutting the end of the stems off diagonally under warm running water.

Hope you're ok hon xxx
I put all my flowers in lemonade it keeps them alive and perky for days

Have done the pin thing - they look a tad better but not brill. ( now looks for the vokda.......)
Pink - Trim the ends by one inch, roll them tightly in newspaper and then stand them up to their necks in water overnight. in the morning they should have perked right back up.
Wait till the morning - they will be perky by then!
droopy? perky?

have i missed something ...lol
I alwas put bleach and sugar in the water of my flowers and make sure you cut of the bottm of the stems. They last longer and the water will not smell so no need to change water. Pleased to hear from you Pinkfizz I was only asking about you the other day but my message was banned. How are things going. love Brenda x
