Tools 2Dear Flower Lover,
To enjoy fresh flowers as long as possible, professional Knowledge is essential.
No. 2) Florist Knife or pair of scissors?
I advice you to use a Florist knife for fresh flowers, you can make a very clean smooth sharp slanted cut, without damaging the inside stem.
For thick branches & strong stems I do advise to use a pair of scissors. You can cut the stem slanted. But for delicate flowers the stem will squeeze a bit / little damage what reduce the ease to uptake water. Especially when we use floral foam technique. Point: When we use floral foam technique I do recommend a florist knife- beside the slanted cut you also can cut the unwanted thicker parts. Please clean your tools after use.
Relax, Smile and Enjoy the Flower Power.
