Waarom moet ik de bloemen schuin afsnijden?
Why do I have to cut the flowers in the bouquet at an angle?
If cut flowers are cut diagonally, they will stay beautiful longer. Cut the flowers diagonally with a sharp knife or secateurs.
Flowers drink water through the bottom of their stems. Before a bouquet is handed over, it has often been on the road for a while and usually has been without water for some time. As a result, the underside of the stems is often dried out and the stem can no longer absorb enough water. That is the reason that flowers always have to be cut diagonally. By cutting off about 2 cm from the flower, the flower can take up enough water again.
