  • Cut those stems- Trim the ends of your sunflowers at an angle, this helps them drink lots of water and keeps your flowers looking fresh.
  • Clean vase please- Sunflowers like to be kept in a nice clean vase, we advise changing the water every other day to keep your flowers healthy and happy.
  • Pick the right spot – Although sunflowers love to grow in the sun, at home they prefer a cool spot with indirect light. Yes, even sunflowers need a break from the spotlight.
