Tulips are wonderful flowers, aren't they? Among the bulbous floriferous plants, they are certainly the most popular because they exist in different colors and treating them is relatively simple.

They have been a source of inspiration for Flemish painters and many of us believe, for this reason, that the origin of the tulip can be attributed to Holland.
Instead, tulips originated from Turkey, making their appearance in Europe only in the mid-16th century. Their name derives from "tullband" which in Turkish means "turban".

Because of their beauty and variety of shapes and colors, tulips have always been considered very decorative flowers and currently they are also very easily found in Italy. In the surroundings of Milan, in Arese (Milan), they can be picked directly from a vast plantation, then bringing home the "booty".


Keeping them in pots is really very simple and in my opinion also surprising because even cut tulip continues to grow and the stem, changing shape, makes the composition that should be checked daily almost alive.

Some do not like the curvilinear tendency of the flower and prefer to keep the tulips straight in the vase. If this is the case, add a couple of 10 or 20 cent coins to the water. And make sure that there is no more than 2 cm of water in the pot. These two small tricks will ensure that the tulip does not curve.

These are my suggestions for making them last well and long in the jar:

. Make a small hole with a pin under the bud to prevent them from touching too quickly
.Cut the stem diagonally, preferably no longer than 20 cm
.Change the water every day
.Keep flowers in a cool corner of the house, away from heat sources
