I will kill any houseplant that you put in front of me. Currently, I am in possession of a very sad looking orchid.
I make up for this by having ok vegetable growing skills and being a cut flower aficionado. I know about a million tips for cut flowers. I know how to revive roses, how to de-pollen lilies and which flowers are effectively cat poison (I’m looking at you chrysanthemums…)
The most annoying part of cut flowers is when this happens. When you have a mixed bunch and some crap out really quickly. It’s tempting to throw the whole lot but I like to downsize mine into a little posy which can brighten any corner. First, hike the whole bunch out of the vase and chuck out the dead one.
You might have enough for a little posy but I like raiding my garden for extras. Anything will do, even greenery.
Trim everything down, arrange and tie with twine. Snip the bottoms and pop in a small vase or jug. Ta-da. Same flowers, new life. If only for a week or two.
One thought on “Bunch to Posy”
So pretty! Sadly I’m not remotely green fingered. Everything I touch dies and I don’t seem to possess any flower arranging skills. My cut flowers look as if they’ve just been dumped into a jar/vase with absolutely no thought. Haha!
