Teach tulips to sit up

Parrot tulip

Tulips often misbehave as cut flowers. They bend and contort as they continue to grow. To straighten them up, cut stems on an angle, then roll each flower tightly in newspaper, extending it above the blooms but leaving the lower third of the stems free. Stand in a vase of cool water in a cool spot for two to three hours. Unwrap to reveal upright tulips.
