Caring for your Flowers
Unlike other flowers, Narcissi stems do not need to be re-cut before displaying. However, sometimes the tip of the stem can dry out, in which case, trim the end of the stem by approximately 2cm. Never bash the stems, it damages the vascular cells so they can't take up water.
Always use fresh water and follow the instructions on the cut flower food.
Flower food doesn't make much difference to narcissi, but does cut bacteria in the water.
Keep vases clean and avoid metallic vases.
The use of oasis is not recommended.

Keeping your Flowers Fresh
Narcissi should last for up to a week, perhaps more if you take good care of the flowers. They like to be kept cool, away from a direct heat source. If kept constantly cool, the flowers can last up to three weeks.
Keep away from ripening fruit, which releases ethylene gas and prematurely ages blooms.
Remove dead heads from the flowers.
They are quite thirsty - keep water topped up regularly.
