April showers bring May flowers! Looking to get outside to pick some wildflowers? Here are some tips:
- The best time to go wildflower picking is really early in the morning or in the evening because the stems are filled with water and the air is cooler.
- Choose flowers which are just coming into bloom, ones that are dropping petals or are covered in pollen are too old.
- Don’t over pick!
- It might be called “wildflower picking” but when using scissors make sure to cut the stem at an angle. This will help to keep the flowers alive longer.
- Lastly, when placing the flowers in a vase use room temperature water.
Now, you will have a lovely bouquet of flowers for Mom which will last longer, using all these tips.
