Beautiful flower and plant arrangements are one of the best ways to decorate — but mastering the art of mixing and matching the right flora is tricky. These books come from some of the top experts in the field, and teach you everything you need for the art of flower and plant arranging, from layering colors to selecting a vase. Besides flowers and foliage, use garden accessories to add some sparkle to your garden. A mirrored gazing ball on a pedestal shimmers with reflected light, while Tiki torches can brighten a sitting area or trail. String tiny white lights (the star-shaped ones are especially nice) from branches, or hang battery-powered paper lanterns.

I love traditional plants for a cutting garden such as roses, lilies (Lilium spp. and cvs., Zones 3–9), hydrangeas (Hydrangea spp. and cvs., Zones 4–9), and Peruvian lilies (Alstroemeria spp. and cvs., Zones 7–10).But you can also look beyond the flowers normally available in the cut-flower trade and create beautiful arrangements from drought-tolerant plants.   Cut flowers and foliage with a sharp knife or flower shears. Cut stems on a slant to enable flowers to absorb more water. Cut stems longer than required for arrangement. Cut extra stems in case of damage. Stand flowers and foliage in a bucket of cool water asthey are cut from the garden; place indoors in a cool, dark place.

Just as we want for our food to not have traveled great distances to reach us, we are beginning to covet flowers that haven't been shipped halfway around the ining a cutting garden is a centuries-old pastime, but most of us aren't exactly flower farmers and can't spare the space to grow an abundance of blooms for arranging.   Pressing is not the ideal way to preserve flowers for dried flower arrangements, but is a good way to save a flower from a special occasion. Growing Plants and Flowers to Dry Many flowers and foliage plants that are already growing in your garden will look great in dried flower arrangements.

Foliage provides more than color and texture for a bouquet. It is also a source of fragrance. When invited out, I often walk through my garden picking sprigs of flowers to make a tussie-mussie for my hostess.

Some floral designers use very few greens. Their arrangements are entirely about flowers and evoke the flower-focused compositions of the Dutch. House plants, trees, flower plants, garden flowers and indoor plants are great for upgrading or accentuating your decor.

Sammy often thinks of a flower arrangement as a micro-garden: the frame as trees and foliage, the foundation as background flowering shrubs, the focal points as the star flowers of the garden, and the floaters as the fleeting, short-season blooms to be enjoyed while they last.
