If there is one flower that lavishly shares its beauty, it is the lily. Their long, sturdy stems give lilies an air of grandeur. And they create a luxurious look with their large, colourful flowers. So, if you adore flowers and like a bold statement, do not hesitate to buy lilies.
Of course, the lily is praised for its beauty, but it also has the power to make you feel good. Research has shown that flowers give your mood a natural and healthy boost. This is because they have an immediate impact on your sense of happiness.
Lilies come in different varieties: the Asiatic lily, the Longiflorum lily, the Oriental lily and all kinds of combinations between these three. There is more and more choice. There are also double lilies, odourless lilies and pollen-free lilies. So now everyone can enjoy these delightful showstoppers.
If you have bought or been given lilies, you will naturally want to enjoy them for as long as possible. For a chic, luxurious atmosphere, put lilies in richly coloured vases or bowls. Follow these steps:
- Remove leaves from the stems so that they are not submerged in the water.
- Cut the stems diagonally at the bottom, over a length of 5 centimetres.
- Place the lilies in a vase, several small vases or a bowl, with plenty of lukewarm water, and add cut flower food.
- Place the lilies in a semi-shaded spot.
