Vase Life Narcissi make great cut flowers lasting up to a week in the vase. I love them jumbled up in large jugs on the table. Be careful mixing with other flower types as their stems give off a compound that is toxic to other flowers and soak their stems in warm water before displaying to stop the 'goo' from running out.

Flowers are lovely but delivered with so much plastic - please can you find another way to deliver them or have a way to return the plastic so you can re-use? Thanks.
