As you may know, one unique characteristic of tulips is their tendency to continue growing even after they've been cut, so don't be surprised if your arrangement looks a bit different the next day. Just give the stems a trim and adjust if needed – it's all part of the fun. To keep your tulips fresh it's essential to fill your vessel with clean water and to cut the stems with a sharp tool to ensure maximum water absorption.

So grab your favorite tulips, get creative, and let your inner florist shine!
Happy arranging!

Fun facts:

Tulips hold significant cultural and historical importance, particularly in the Netherlands, where they have been cultivated since the 16th century. The Dutch Tulip Mania of the 17th century, during which tulip bulbs were traded at absurd prices, remains one of the most famous economic bubbles in history.

In the northern hemisphere commercially grown tulips are usually available from december until easter.  However, in the Netherlands, the official start of the tulip season is celebrated each year on National Tulip Day, typically held on the third saturday of January. In Sweden we celebrate this day on the 15th of january.

Although the tulip is associated with Holland, Swedes buy more of them than any other nationality. Over 150 million tulips are sold annually in Sweden, according to statistics from Jordbruksverket.

Tulips come in so many different shades and varieties that the creative possibilities are almost endless!
