The Technique

Once you are familiar with several blooming plant, vine & shrub varieties, making your own flower arrangements can be fun & fulfilling. If you don’t have these garden staples growing in your green space, pick them up from local nurseries & plant them either in your yard as they can be used in a number of lovely ways.

Lonicera

Honeysuckle is a low maintenance vine or shrub & may be evergreen, semievergreen or deciduous featuring tubular shaped blooms. Colors range from white & creamy yellow to scarlet red, coral & shades of pink. Expect blossoms to deepen once they open to create almost an ombre effect on vines. Water honeysuckle regularly & plant them in full to partial sun for the best show. Thin them as they age to keep an attractive appearance.

The Yard Arrangement

Honeysuckle blossoms may be tucked into bud vases, shot glasses, vintage silver sugar bowls & heirloom silver cigarette holders. Add complimentary garden greenery mainstays such as hosta or fern varieties to cheer up several spots around the home including window sills, kitchen sinks & vanity tables. Tie the stems together with twine, if desired, so the bouquet will fit a variety of containers or allow it to freely float about.
