3 Tips For Making Your Own Wildflower Bouquet
There are a few considerations and simple tips to help turn your amateur bouquet into a professional-looking arrangement.
Tip 1: Stripping Foliage
Before you arrange your flowers, make sure to strip any foliage from the bottom parts of the stems that will be placed directly in the water. Foliage towards the top of the stem adds interest and filler to your bouquet, but leaves and other foliage that sit in water can cause bacteria that will reduce the life of your cut flowers. You can use your hands or snips to gently remove foliage from each stem, being careful not to break or damage the stem itself.
Use your hands or scissors to strip foliage from the bottom part of your cut flower stem. This helps prevent bacteria from forming in the water which can cause the flowers to die quickly.
