Cut Florals at Peak Season Now
Spring is the season for cut and fun, when an abundance of cut tulips, daffodils and hyacinths answers the siren call of spring. Spring bulb flowers are a top seasonal “best bet” at peak availability now, with affordable prices and the broadest range of types and colors.
“Pick up a bunch or two of tulips now. Enjoy yourself: it’s fun to mess around with flowers,” says Sally Ferguson of the Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center. “Keep it simple and use your same favorite vase. Or explore creative choices, where your arrangements reflect the good time you had pairing different flowers to a range of different containers.”
Here are some perky design tips for creating fresh stylish arrangements with tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. For more ideas go to www.bulb.com.
• Twigs and Tulips
Nature knows what works together — twigs and tulips. Sure enough, what’s great in the garden is great in the vase. Sticks and blooms are a springtime classic.
• Spring Nests for Flowers
Nesting flowers is a floral design technique rather like staging a room or dressing in layers. It’s all about presentation. Your flower arrangement is just the beginning. Next comes how and where you choose to display it.
