Woodland in a vase
Create your own miniature woodland gardens
San Diego garden consultant Laurie Connable’s spring bouquets look like woodland gardens in miniature. Her daffodils, irises, and gladiolus appear to rise from a mossy patch of earth instead of a water-filled vase. The smaller blooms and greenery at their base add to the garden look.
The best flowers for woodland arrangements thrust upward, says Connable. “They’re not bush flowers, like roses.” Whether you use cuttings from your garden or blooms from a florist, they make perfect centerpieces for spring tables.
