Flower arranging tip for February

Now is the season for arranging spring flowers. Most spring flowers, Snowdrops, Daffodils, Hyacinths, Tulips etc. are not happily arranged in floral foam, so now is the time to practice using other forms of support for your flowers. Pin holders, bare twigs, or flower tape firmly attached to the top of your container should give these delicate flowers all the support they need. Keep the water clean and your flowers will last longer than those arranged in floral foam.
