Stargazer Lily flower care advice

During the spring months, there are few things more beautiful than a stunning stargazer lily bouquet. Of course, just like any other fresh flowers, you want to make sure that they last as long as possible. So, with this in mind, here are some care tips that you will find easy to follow and extremely helpful.

What you need:

  • Your stargazer lily bouquet

  • One clean vase

  • Flower food

  • A sharp cutting tool

  • A bucket with lukewarm water


  • When your stargazer lily bouquet is delivered, the first thing you want to do is place them in a bucket of lukewarm water.

  • While your blooms enjoy a drink, you can prepare your vase by cleaning and rinsing it thoroughly.

  • Next, dissolve some flower food in fresh water and add to your vase.

  • Remove any wrapping and packaging materials from the stems.

  • Next, you need to trim each stem at an angle before placing it in the vase. By trimming the stems at an angle, it creates a larger surface area for water absorption and it ensures that the stems do not end up resting flat on the base of the vase.

  • You should also remove any lower leaves that would otherwise end up under the waterline in the vase.

  • If you would like, you can remove the pollen from these blooms too. This will help prevent them from making a mess on the table once put on display. It can also help your lilies last longer.

Once you are done, you need to choose the perfect spot to show off your stargazer lily bouquet. Make sure that it is kept out of direct sunlight and away from windy areas and sources of heat. Change the water every couple of days. If you notice that the stems are slimy, you should trim them once again while changing the vase water.
