How do you get useful cuts from bachelor buttons?
I'm still pretty much a beginner at this and I'd like to know the best way to cut bachelor buttons. If I cut them low to get a good stem length, I get a few unopened buds with each bloom, and they mostly seem to be longer than the bloom itself.
I could trim the buds off, but that takes quite a bit of time for each small bloom that I'll get. Do any of you just leave the buds on and use them in bouquets like that? I have a few sitting in water now to see if the buds will open and how long it takes.
I'm in the same situation with cosmos, to a lesser degree.
I'm sure you're all super busy right now, but if someone could find the time to help me with this, I would really appreciate it.
