Think of how you would dry your washing on a washing line, and do the complete opposite: keep them away from any sunshine or breezes.
If you cut in the morning, then a daytime rest is enough. If you cut in the evening, leave them overnight.
Keep them cool and out of direct sunlight and, of course, change the water religiously — think every day. At the dinner table, opt for just a few focal flowers for drama, some foliage for background and a couple of fillers for scent.
Flowers cut at their best first thing in the morning. How to create a seasonal bouquet. While flower arrangements for myself tend to be simple — a mug with a rose in it, or an old ink bottle with grasses and seed heads — creating a seasonal bunch to give away is such a joy and simple, too.
While a willow-branch arch can be an attractive feature, Be aware that willow branches pushed straight into the ground are likely to root. Make your blooms last…. When choosing flowers, either from your garden or shop-bought, look for ones that are tight in bud or just starting to open, with any stem leaves green and firm, not floppy or yellowing. Before putting in water, trim about 2cm off the bottom of each stem and cut at an angle to increase the surface area that is exposed to water.
Woody stems such as hydrangea and lilac need more of a boost, so add a slit up the stem, too. Take off any leaves that will sit below the water line and, to keep your water clean, change it regularly and snip the ends each time again. For tall stems you will need a container at least half their height to avoid droopy heads. When you are low on vases, jugs work really well for mid-length flowers and tumblers for shorter ones. My current obsession is filling different ceramic water jugs with fresh flowers and simple foliage —I love how the wide neck encourages the greenery to trail out for a rustic look.
