Spring is finally here and with it comes a wide variety of new flowers available at your local florist. From vibrant tulips to delicate peonies, there is a flower for everyone to enjoy. But with so many new options, it can be overwhelming to know how to care for each type of flower. That’s why we’ve gathered some tips and tricks from local florists to help you keep your new blooms looking beautiful.
First up, tulips. Tulips are a classic spring flower that come in a range of colors from bright pink to soft yellow. When caring for tulips, it’s important to keep them in a cool location and change their water regularly. “Tulips are sensitive to heat and direct sunlight,” says local florist Sarah Smith. “So, it’s best to keep them away from windows or heating vents.”
Next, we have peonies. These delicate flowers come in shades of pink, white, and red and have a sweet fragrance. When caring for peonies, it’s important to give them plenty of water and keep them in a cool room. “Peonies are heavy drinkers, so make sure to check their water levels daily,” advises local florist, Jane Martinez.
Another new flower to look out for is the ranunculus. These flowers have layers of delicate petals in shades of pink, orange, and yellow. When caring for ranunculus, it’s important to keep them in a bright, sunny location and change their water every few days. “Ranunculus thrive in bright light and cooler temperatures,” says local florist, Emily Brown. “So, keep them away from direct sunlight and in a cool room.”
Lastly, we have interviews with local florists and their businesses showcasing unique floral arrangements and designs. One local florist, Lily’s Florals, creates stunning arrangements using a mix of traditional and exotic flowers. “We love incorporating unexpected elements into our designs,” says Lily’s Florals owner, Lily Chen. “It adds a unique touch to each arrangement.”
