Once tulip stems are cut they continue to grow towards the light and can often bend.
To help prevent this so you can position them when you want in a design you can insert the end of a 22 gauge wire x 45cm long into the base of the flower head for about 3-5cm and wind the wire spirally down and around the stem 3 or 4 times.
For some designs you might like the tulips to be fuller – such as a table centrepiece where they need to be at their best for a short period of time.
If the petals are soft you can gently open them up more by gently holding the base of each petal and turning them back and then spray them lightly with water. Only do this for soft petals if the petals are firm they will break.
