Ikebana scissors are primarily used for the art of ikebana, which is the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement. They are specifically designed for cutting flowers and branches with precision and control. Here are some specific uses of ikebana scissors:

  1. Trimming Stems: Ikebana scissors are used to trim the stems of flowers and branches at different angles. This allows for precise adjustments in the height and placement of the plant materials within the arrangement.
  1. Shaping and Pruning: Ikebana scissors are used to shape and prune the plant materials, ensuring that they fit harmoniously into the overall composition. The sharp and pointed tips of the scissors enable delicate cuts, allowing for intricate shaping and manipulation of the stems and leaves.
  1. Removing Thorns and Leaves: Ikebana scissors can be used to remove thorns and unwanted leaves from the stems, creating a clean and polished look for the arrangement.
  1. Harvesting Plant Materials: Ikebana scissors are also useful for harvesting plant materials from gardens or natural environments. They allow for precise and careful cutting, ensuring minimal damage to the plants during the gathering process.
  1. Maintaining Sharpness: Ikebana scissors require regular sharpening to maintain their effectiveness. Some practitioners may use their scissors for sharpening other tools or adjusting flower stems.
Overall, ikebana scissors are versatile tools that play a significant role in the delicate and precise art of ikebana. They help ikebana practitioners achieve the desired aesthetic and balance in their flower arrangements.

1) First trim the stems - It is very important when you received the
flower box, always cut your flowers at an angle so they can absorb
more water & won't suffocate on the bottom of the vase. After the
initial cut, check the bottoms of your stems every couple of days,
and if the ends are looking a bit slimy, just snip off an inch or so.
2) Remove Leaves - Take off any excess leaves so that all the water is
funneled into the petals. But please keep one to two top leafs. Pay
special attention to leaves below the water line because they'll
decompose, causing rot and bacteria to grow, which will shorten the
lifespan of your blooms.
3) Find a Vase - You may have noticed your flowers no longer have
roots, and that they're not in soil. Bet they're thirsty! Time to put them
in your favorite vase with some fresh deep water and change the
water every day.
4) Remove Spent Blooms - Any flowers that are past their prime
release ethylene gas which will age the flowers around them. Remove
any flowers that are beginning to wilt to keep the rest of your bouquet
fresh and happy.
5) Keep Them Cool - Last but not least, keep your flowers in a cool
area. Don't put them in the sun, near radiators, computers, televisions,
fireplaces, ovens... you get the idea.
