Are there any flowers I shouldn’t re-cut?- Flowers 101

Funny you should ask because there is only one flower that benefits from the lack of cutting: the freesia. This flower has the strongest vascular system in the flower world and when cut it emits ethylene, a hormone that allows flowers to ripen or bloom. When cut the freesia secretes so much ethylene that it will actually kill the first blossom on the stem, so rather than cut freesia simply put it directly into cool, flower nutrient water and sit back and watch this very fragrant flower open magically.
