mTip: Plant Clippings to Floral Arrangements in Minutes

mTip:
Plant Clippings to Floral Arrangements in Minutes

A manicured garden needs consistent attention.
A snip here, a snip there just to keep everything in its place.
However, don’t toss ALL of those clippings in the compost!
Some of them might look fab in your floral arrangements.
Bring a bucket of water outside
and keep any good stems hydrated while working.

When it’s time to add fresh flowers to your home,
you’ll have a head start and minimal waste.

Yew, ivy and the piece of begonia
that sadly fell off during planting.

Indoor plants need attention too!
The raphis palm in our family room
 had a few stray fronds dangling
and the wheelbarrow hit one of our hydrangeas
which sent three blooms to the ground.
Both fit perfectly in this arrangement.
