Miss Mole's Flower Emporium

In July, Miss Mole of Miss Mole's Flower Emporium came to The Garden House to give us some pointers on flower arranging. 

<p>She gave us plenty of advice for keeping flowers:</p> <ul> <li><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Always cut stems at an angle</span></li> <li><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Sugar, bleach and plant food in the water will all help keep </span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">cut </span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">flowers </span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">looking fresh </span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">for longer</span></li> <li><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Remove dead flowers from your bouquet as they will release ethylene and make the other flowers die</span></li> <li><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Completely change your water every 3 days</span></li> </ul>

She gave us plenty of advice for keeping flowers:

  • Always cut stems at an angle
  • Sugar, bleach and plant food in the water will all help keep cut flowers looking fresh for longer
  • Remove dead flowers from your bouquet as they will release ethylene and make the other flowers die
  • Completely change your water every 3 days

She showed us how to make a bouquet by choosing flowers and foliage then turning the bouquet in your hand as you keep adding to it.
