Wednesday’s Flowers on Thursday

March 17, 2011

For this week’s flowers I created a pretty combination spring with pink tulips and yellow daffodils in a white, square glass vase and topped with dried moss.  The bulbs were purchased potted; I used two 4″ pots of daffodils and one 4″ pot of tulips.  The pots were $2.97 each. The moss is out of my tool kits (it is an important staple in the kit) and I reused some moss balls from back in January.

Here is what I created for you this week:

For this week’s flowers I created a pretty combination spring with pink tulips and yellow daffodils in a white, square glass vase and topped with dried moss.  The bulbs were purchased potted, I used two 4″ pots of daffodils and one 4″ pot of tulips.  The pots were $2.97 each. The moss is out of my tool kits (it is an important staple in the kit) and I reused some moss balls from back in January.

Gently remove the bulbs from the pots and place 2 of the three into the vase.

Carefully divide the bulbs from the third pot.  Keep all the soil loose for step 4.

Use the individual bulbs to fill the empty spaces in the vase.  Gently remove soil if the space is tight so the bulb fits without squishing it.

Once the vase is filled with bulbs, top with soil to covers the roots and bulbs.

Cover the top of the vase with moss, be generous.

Water, water, water…

Add a decorative element, like moss balls or whatever suits your fancy! And then you are done!

Enjoy!
