Have you ever brushed up against a lily and gotten pollen all over your favorite shirt? To avoid the dreaded pollen catastrophe make sure you remove the pollen.
When your lily bloom opens wide enough, take a soft paper towel and gently pop the anther (pollen) off of the filament. Then you can dispose of the pollen and avoid the messy pollen issue.
After reading our Quick Flower Care Tip, Mary Williams at Ideal Floral and Gifts in Lyons, Ga sent us a great way to remove pollen from clothing.
Just read your info on lily pollen. I have found that if you do indeed get the pollen on you or your clothes you need to lift it off with tape. Any kind will do. This surely has saved a lot of ruined clothes for my customers!
Mary, thank you for such a useful tip. I will be sure to remember it the next time I pick lilies from my garden. I seem to get get pollen all over me every time I pick my lilies.
If anyone else has a secret way to remove pollen from clothing, please share you tips with us.
