Hello! My name is Jose Zuniga. I am a professional gardener and today I am here to represent expertvillage.com. What are we doing right now? I'm going to explain to you step by step on cutting your flowers. As you are aware, snapdragons are known to be cut flowers. This particular bush I have here they are not fully grown. They still have about 6 to 8 more inches to grow. They are going to be a little bit taller. Once they are fully developed, what you do is cut about 6 of them. When you do that, be sure that you cut the stem heading in this direction and by doing this, what you do is you are allowing the water to penetrate through the stem and maintain the flower fresh for about 2 weeks or so I would say. After that I would definitely suggest that add between 1 to 2 aspirins in the water which is going to revive the flower. Also every other day, feel free to change the water. Keep clean water rotating so that is basically it. So these are the steps of how to cut your flowers.
