I made a lovely tulip and daffodil bouquet for a friend and was told not to put them together for some reason. Does anyone know if this is just a "flower myth" or are they incompatible in an arrangement? thanks, (puzzled in Parksville)

I've heard the same thing, Aili. Can't personally confirm it, but I believe that Art Drysdale mentioned recently on his radio show that there's something is the sap from cut daffodils that will cause other flowers to wilt quickly.

Hi, I read on that if you cut a dafodils stem, it will ooze a gooey substance that clogs the other flower stems. To avoid this, instead of cutting the stems, snap it off by grasping it at the bottom where the stalk is more solid,then twist and snap and soak tip in warm water for a few hours.
