Petal Pointer: “Pick” Tender Stems

Flowers with tender or short stems (hyacinth, daffodils, orchids and more) can be placed in water picks before including them in an arrangement; water picks will give your more fragile flowers a bit more support and prevent them from wilting too soon. Water picks are especially useful for arrangements that use Oasis, as it will then be easier to stick them into the firm surface of the floral foam:
