Best Ways to Keep daffodils fresh

1

Use a bucket of warm water

After cutting the flower, immediately place them in warm water. Let it rest for a few hours to harden itself. In the meantime, you can position the bulbs so that they do not bend. Also make sure to not put any flowers in the same bucket. Because, after cutting, daffodils release a toxin which is harmful for other flowers. You will need to recut the daffodils under warm water because it will prevent air bubbles to form in the stem and block water absorption. After that, decorate the daffodils with other flowers in a vase.

Harvest at the correct time

Daffodils are a great addition for your flower vase decoration. The cheerful bloom of daffodil makes them a perfect choice for flower arrangements. Unfortunately, daffodils have a relatively less vase life span than other flowers. But there are certain things that you can do to ensure a longer life span. The first thing you can do is harvest/cut them at the right time. The perfect time to cut daffodil flowers is when the tip of the petals reveal itself and the buds start to open.

Reduce Oxygen exposure

No matter what you are storing, Oxygen can easily deteriorate them. So in order to ensure long storage life, you must reduce Oxygen exposure with the grains. An airtight plastic container or a simple plastic zipper bag can do the trick. If you want to store the grains for a long period of time, then try to vacuum seal them in a plastic container. It will surely keep the grains safely stored over a year, but it is better to not store milled grains for more than 6 months.

Pick a cool and dry place

Even after sealing the grains and vacuum it to suffocate any living things, life may still thrive in that sealed bag of bean. The best way to make sure life does not grow inside and ruin the grains is to store the bag in a cool and dry place, where sunlight cannot reach, and the temperature is relatively cooler than outside. Cold temperature stops life from growing, as a result insect eggs and other harmful things in the bag will stop thriving and start to die off.
