Buying and Caring for Cut Lilies
- Buy the blooms when they are still closed. Lily petals bruise quite easily and it will be easier to transport of the blooms are closed.
- If you are buying for an event where you want all the lilies wide open, buy the closed bloom 3-5 days ahead of time to allow enough time for the blooms to open.
- Always condition your cut flowers when you get home. This will encourage the blooms to open. Remove any broken leaves from the stems and re-cut the stems before putting them in a solution of water and floral food.
- Lily pollen can stain. Remove the stamens with a tissue. If you get pollen on clothing or a tablecloth, remove with tape. Just place a piece of tape down and then pull off. Do not use water or try to brush the pollen away.
