It sounds a bit gross, but it is still extremely helpful: “sliming” daffodils is necessary if you plan to combine the cut flowers with others.

With their bright yellow flowers, daffodils exude pure joy of life.

They look best in a purist flower vase.

But if you want to combine the cut flowers with other varieties, caution is advised.

Because the sap of the flower can cause it to wilt more quickly.

Always let daffodils “slime out” first

Daffodils are the first spring flowers in the garden and the beauties are also available from florists as cut flowers from March at the latest.

If you put them in the vase, you should note the following:

  • If you plan to combine daffodils with tulips, you should let the daffodils “slime” for at least a day.

  • It is best to place the cut flowers alone in a vase.

    Not only do they come into their own better, but they don't cause other flowers to droop their heads more quickly.

    You should have freshly cut the flowers beforehand.

    This allows the flowers to release plant mucus, which would otherwise lead to blocked water channels in other cut flowers.

  • Then you can mix the flowers.

    However, make sure that you do not cut the daffodils again after they have been “slimed out”, because then the whole thing will start all over again.

Or make it even easier for yourself and combine them with more uncomplicated branches such as those from birch or willow, as

The flower is poisonous to dogs and cats

Like bow hemp, lilies and amaryllis, daffodils are also poisonous to humans and animals.

In fact, almost all early bloomers are dangerous.

The culprit is the alkaloids contained in the stem, which can cause irritation if they come into contact with the skin.

Of course, you shouldn't consume parts of the plant and you should be particularly careful with vase water if animals or children are nearby.
