Do you ever use viburnum as cut flowers? When to pick them?
I always struggle with when to cut shrubs for cut flowers. I cut peonies early, at the bud stage, and let them flower and open indoors. It prolongs their life in the vase and I enjoy watching them open.
I struggle with knowing when to cut flowering shrubs for cut flowers. Things like this viburnum. Or my lilac bushes. Or my hydrangea.
Do you cut them green (like this) and let them develop inside? Or do you pick them closer to their peak? Sometimes I feel like it's easy to miss the peak.
