Flowers are the perfect way to show our love, appreciation and that we care.
This gift posy of flowers would be an ideal gift for many different occasions.
The flowers used in this design are pink roses, cream ranunculus and carnations, pale green viburnum and eucalyptus gum.
The foliage on the lower parts of the stems are removed as foliage left under the water line will pollute the water and the flowers will not last well.
The flowers are placed in groups along the bench
The centre flower is held in one hand about 20cm down between the thumb and first finger from the base of the flower head. The whole posy is made by holding the stems in this position. The other flowers are added and crisscrossing the stems where you holding them with the other hand turning the posy around clockwise as you work.
When the posy is the desired size the stems are tied with a few twists of string and tied in a knot
The stems are cut to the desired length and placed in a container of water and the water topped ever couple of days.
This design has been explained briefly. In the Floristry Course the practical lessons have instructions on how long to cut the stems and where to position them and a step-by-step video to follow.
