How does this Tulip tip work?Posted: April 16, 2013
Last week I was listening to the lovely Claudia Winkleman (presenter of The Great British Sewing Bee) on the radio and heard a bizarre tip for keeping tulips standing up straight instead of them falling over in the vase. A very simple step of dropping a 2p coin into the vase with the water was said to be the answer. Not two 1p coins. One 2p. Yeah right, I thought.
By coincidence a friend visited me on Friday and brought me and brought me a beautiful bunch of tulips (Thank you J!). Time to try out that tip!
Five days later they are still standing as straight as soldiers. How does that work?
