Sunflowers stems are thick and require a lot of water. If your sunflowers are drooping, it's likely that this is because they are not drinking enough water! Sometimes air can get trapped in the tips of the stems, which makes it difficult for them to drink water. This means the stem loses its water tension and so begins to droop. To prevent this or to revive drooping sunflowers, cut about an inch off of each stem at a 45 degree angle and place the flowers back in cold, fresh water. You should begin to see them perk back up within 24 hours! 

Another tip when dealing with sunflowers is to ensure you have the correct vase. They are best displayed in a tall vase. If you don't have a tall vase, cut the stems down so that the head is 2 - 3 cm above the rim of the vase. This helps to support the sunflowers heads, as they can be very heavy. If you have tried the above and your sunflowers have not perked up after 24 hours, please feel free to get in touch. Alternatively, head over to our Flower Care Essentials page.
