Tulip Picking Tips, and Information

Farms that offer U-pick or pick-your-own tulips are becoming more common. Tulips follow daffodils. So once you see daffodils blooming in your area, expect the tulips about one month later

  • Once picked, quickly get the stems into water
  • Get them out of the hot sun after picking to increase shelf life.  Cool shade is best.
  • Re-cut stems while underwater - once you get home. Making a fresh cut, while the cut end is submerged helps the stem to take up water and avoid a vapor lock.
