We’ve all been there: You prepare roses for a vase arrangement, don’t pay attention – and one of the sensitive stems snaps off! The only remedy is to put the damaged rose in an extra-small vase. However, with our tip, this will no longer be a problem in the future. Simply grab your tesafilm®, tear off a piece and wrap it around the damaged stem, thus splinting it. It also works very well for sunflowers!

First Aid

Snapped off flowers are no longer a problem: With a piece of tesafilm®, the stem can easily be splinted.

Strong hold for delicate flowers

It may be quite tricky to arrange flowers in vases with wide openings. You usually need quite a bunch, because otherwise the single flowers will constantly fall apart or not stay in place. Since very few of us have great skill in tying a bouquet, we usually buy ready-made bouquets. Which from time to time is certainly a nice alternative, but in the long run it costs a fortune. Our tip – do it like the professionals: Use tesafilm® to create a grid with approx. 2 cm spacing across the vase opening. This way, the stems can simply be inserted into the gaps and remain perfectly in place.

The Vase Trick

Simply create a grid made of adhesive tape across vases with large openings. This way, the flowers stay in place.

“Very often, small tricks can make a big difference: I particularly like to arrange delicate wildflowers with the vase trick – it saves time and money.”
