Where to Buy Tulips

PetalDriven: The tulips I’m using for this post are from PetalDriven. PetalDriven is a go-to for me when I need a lot of flowers.

You may tend to pay a bit more, but it’s always nice to support a local business.

How to Arrange

Start by removing your tulips from their packaging. Discard and recycle any paper or plastic.

Fill a clean vase about 1/3 full with room temperature water. Tulips tend to do best in shallow water.

Using a pair of sharp scissors, cut off at least 1 inch of the tulip stem and then place it directly into the water.
