When the weather is nice 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.
  • Always pick the flowers just before they are in full bloom. Ones that are dropping petals or are covered in pollen are too old.
  • Don’t over pick! Leave some flowers for nectar and pollen for pollinators.
  • 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.
